Research Scholar, Singhania University, Rajasthan
Abstract – Agriculture occupies a vital position in the State’s economy engaging about 53 per cent of the
total working force, according in 2001 Census. The contributions of this Sector in State Domestic Product
(SDP) at constant and current prices are 31.08 per cent and at 31.13 per cent respectively in 2002-2003. All
the agricultural programmes have been assigned with high priority in the Successive plan periods for
efficient use of available resources and to maximize production. These efforts have no doubt resulted some
transformation in the pace of development under this sector, but much more still remains to be done to
bring the situation compatible with other developed States of the country.

I. INTRODUCTION
Agriculture is the main source of income for families in India. Rice is the staple diet for about 65% people and
cultivation of rice is the main occupation of those engaged in agriculture. It is grown in many regions across India.
It is a part of nearly every meal, and it is grown on a majority of the rural farms. Rice is essential to life in India.
India is the world's second largest producer of white rice. Here rice is cultivated in both seasons-winter and summer.
It contributes about 43% of total food grain production and 46% of total cereal production in the country. It
continues to play vital role in the national exports. The percentage share of rice in total national export was 4.5%
during 1998-99. The percentage share of agriculture export in total national export was 18.25, whereas the
percentage share of rice export in total agriculture export was 24.62 during 1998-99. Thus, rice export contributes
nearly 25% of total agriculture export from the country.

Rice

...Rice As a Liberian from West Africa, I ate rice from my childhood days to adulthood. I love to eat rice at any time of the day; morning, noon, evening, and night. I connect my life with rice in so many ways; with my parents, family, friends, education, and the community. As a young child growing up, my parents will take me along with my siblings on the farm with them where we will plant and harvest rice together. Although I was around the age of five years old, but I still remember that we all had some part to play in making sure that there was rice available for the entire family to eat, share with family, and friends, and sell to get money, and buy essential things for the family. The proceeds from the rice was also used to educate us. On the farm, we will all gathered, do our assigned tasks; my task was to pick the unbeaten rice from amongst the beaten rice. I will spot the unbeaten rice, and then put it aside so that it can be beaten again. My older sisters, the twin’s task was to let my parent know if we had certain amount of rice. My brothers’ task was to assist in beating the rice. Our parents’ tasks were to perform all of the tasks, and at the same time oversee them. We named ourselves the picker, the counters, the beaters, and overseer respectively. Once our assigned tasks are complete, and the goal of the day is met, we then sit together around the camp fire during meals time, and eat together while connecting with each other through conversation.

Forecasting the Quarterly Rice Production in the Province of Iloilo Using Different Forecasting Models

...CHAPTER I INTRODUCTION Brief Background “Rice,” first used in the middle of the 13th century, undergoes a long journey on derivation of its name. It is written to have originated from the Old French, “ris,” which came from the Italian “riso,” which in turn from the Latin “oriza.” Despite having a series of appellation, rice is simply the seed of the monocot plants Oryzasativa (Asian rice) or Oryzaglaberrima (African rice), considered to be the most utterly consumed staple food for a vast portion of the world’s human population, specifically in Asia and the second-highest with the most number of production, after corn, based on the 2010 data of FAOSTAT, the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations. Notwithstanding the association, Oryzasativaand Oryzaglaberrimaare two different species. The former is more predominantly acknowledged than the latter because of its popularity in cereal biology. Great subspecies with variety of kinds have been widely generated because of its easy genetic modification for the reason that it contains the largest genome, consisting of 430 Mb across 12 chromosomes, among the cereal plant(Linares, 2002). One of its speciesis the sticky, short grained Japonica or Sinica variety, usually cultivated in dry fields, in temperate East Asia, upland areas of Southeast Asia and high elevations in South Asia. Second is the non-stick, long-grained Indica varietywhich is mainly lowland rice, grown mostly submerged, throughout tropical...

Introduction[1][2] Rice is the seed of the monocot plants Oryza sativa (Asian rice) or Oryza glaberrima (African rice). As a cereal grain, it is the most widely consumed staple food for a large part of the world's human population, especially in Asia and the West Indies. It is the grain with the second-highest worldwide production, after maize (corn), according to data for 2010. Since a large portion of maize crops are grown for purposes other than human consumption, rice is the most important grain with regard to human nutrition and caloric intake, providing more than one fifth of the calories consumed worldwide by the human species. Rice provides about 22 percent of the world supplies of calories and 17 percent of the proteins. Maximum area under rice is in Asia. Among the rice growing countries, India has the largest area (40.2 million) hectares followed by China and Bangladesh...

Microwave-Assisted Enzymatic Hydrolysis of Rice Straw Using Effective Microorganisms for Bioethanol Production

.... Among other feedstock for bioethanol production, biomass has been reported ideal and well-suited because of its large-scale availability, low cost, and environmentally benign production (Brodeur, 2011). Feedstock biomass is an organic matter that can be converted into energy from crop residues and agricultural wastes like rice straw (Bracmont, 2012). Rice straw is consists predominantly of cell walls and comprised with cellulose and hemicelluloses, which can be converted into bioethanol, and lignin. Annual generation in the country is 11.3 million tons according to the Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice) (Yap, 2012); while in the whole Asia is 667.6 million tons (Sarkar, et. al., 2012) Nowadays, there is much activity in the area of lignocellulosic bioethanol, where the cellulose component of a biomass is broken down into simple sugars and subsequently to ethanol (http://www.ncsu.edu). Pretreatment has been used to separate the three main components of biomass (cellulose, hemicelluloses, and lignin) to increase access on the surface area and size the pores, decrease its crystallinity and polymerization degree (Maria, Galleti & Antonetti, 2011), and break lignin seal (Binod, et. al., 2009). Common pretreatment technique include chemical, physical and thermal processes like acid crystallinization, steam explosion and liquid hot water (Harmsen, et. al., 2010). Yet, these pretreatment involves hazardous chemicals and typically expensive to operate because of...

...Rice & Peas Ingredients 1 fresh coconut (or you could use coconut milk in a can) 850ml (1½ pint) warm water 1 hot red chilli (ideally Scotch bonnet), whole and undamaged 7 allspice berries 2 sprigs of thyme 1 garlic clove, peeled 1 spring onion, bruised with a rolling pin ½ onion, roughly chopped 400g can 30g black beans, drained Salt and pepper 450g (1lb) basmati rice Directions 1. First you need to get into your coconut. Decide which of the three 'eyes' (you'll see them at one end) is the one you are most likely to be able to break into - only one will work! 2. Try to penetrate it with a strong, sharp-tipped knife. If that one doesn't work, try the others. 3. Pour the coconut water out through the hole and set aside. 4. Smash the coconut (doing this outside against a bit of concrete is a good idea). 5. Using a small, sharp knife, lever the coconut flesh away from the shell. 6. Grate the coconut into a bowl. Pour 650ml (1 pint 2fl oz) water over and stir. Lift the coconut flesh up in fistfuls and squeeze out all the juice into the water. Put the squeezed clumps of grated coconut into a sieve, transfer the coconut water to a saucepan, tip the squeezed coconut back into the bowl and cover with the remaining water. Again lift the coconut flesh up in fistfuls and squeeze out all the juice into the water. Transfer the coconut water to the saucepan. Discard the squeezed-out flesh. Add the coconut water from the coconut to......

...* Dundee as a "hybrid" of information (the real Paul Hogan's media personality and identification with Australia and the Australian) * Crocodile Dundee combined recognisably different dramatic forms: "the fish out of water" comedy with a 'populist' address * Crocodile Dundee was marketed in Australia as a blockbuster. Before the 10BA Tax Incentives blockbuster production was severely handicapped by lack of funds and publicity infrastructure. 10BA made both possible. Several general points about Crocodile Dundee as a blockbuster film are worth making to begin with. As a product of the tendency for box office revenues to concentrate in a handful of films in any one year, this blockbuster phenomenon (like The Godfather (1974) and Star Wars (1977)) led Hogan and Cornell to try and create a film "event" and to manage it appropriately. They did this in a number of ways. * Both the publicity and the release patterns worked to create the film as an event, as a phenomenon. * This was achieved through a multi-levelled and simultaneous campaign across the media (TV, magazine, radio, newspapers, and advertising) involving appearances, interviews, features articles, stories, and ads relating to Hogan, the film and its other creative talent (Linda Kozlowski, Faiman etc) * Given the double edged provisos of audience and social text it is not surprising that Dundee's producers had their origins in commercial TV. Crocodile Dundee was based on the TV comic and ad...
