RICE

Agriculture - - Special Rice -

has two ma­jor types: Indica and Japon­ica. In the Philip­pines, Indica rice is more com­mon than Japon­ica rice. Japon­ica rice va­ri­eties thrive well in tem­per­ate ar­eas. As they are not well adapted to trop­i­cal weather like Indica va­ri­eties, there is a smaller area planted to Japon­ica rice pro­duc­tion in the coun­try than Indica rice va­ri­eties; hence, a lower sup­ply in the mar­ket.
