“The rice field” is one of those words that seems to conjure up images of a barren field.
There are the rows of rice paddies, and there’s the empty spaces.
But for most people in the world, it’s an image of a world without rice.
It’s a stereotype, to be sure, but a stereotype nonetheless.
In fact, rice farming is one reason why there are so many rice farmers in the United States.
According to USDA’s Agricultural Research Service, more than 95 percent of the world’s rice crop is grown in Africa and the Middle East.
The United States is home to about a quarter of that, too.
In the United Kingdom, for instance, there are only 7.3 million acres of rice in production.
For some reason, that’s enough to make about 5.6 million servings of rice.
In Canada, which has the world record for rice production, there’s just 1.3 billion acres of land.
There are no rice fields in North America, so farmers in that country grow the rice they need.
But there are plenty of rice fields.
The Philippines is the largest rice producer in the region.
In China, there is also plenty of land to grow rice.
According the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, the country has more than 11.3 trillion tons of rice, or about 5 billion kilograms.
In South Korea, the number of acres of crop grown in the country is more than 3.3 quadrillion.
South Korea is home in large part to the country’s rice, as is Vietnam.
In both countries, rice fields can be found in every part of the country.
It turns out that rice fields aren’t just for the rich, either.
As Quartz reports, the average rice farmer in the Philippines earns about $400 per acre.
In the United Arab Emirates, for example, the median income for a rice farmer is about $100 per acre, according to a study published in 2013 by the United Nation’s Food and Agricultural Organization.
There’s more to rice fields than rice, though.
There’s the food they’re grown on.
Rice is a food staple in many places around the world.
In Asia, it is one the staple foods for many people, from the rice farmers of the Philippines to the rice growers of China to the food workers of Myanmar.
But rice fields are also important for people around the globe.
They’re important for their health.
Rice fields help feed the world hungry, and the vast majority of the people who depend on them for food don’t have access to enough rice to eat.
The United Nations estimates that nearly three-quarters of the rice grown globally in 2014 was wasted.
A study published last year in the Journal of Applied Physiology found that almost half of rice that is grown on American rice fields was never harvested.
There were a few exceptions, like the tiny amount of rice produced by rice farmers who live in countries like India.
But in countries with more rice, the waste rates are far lower.
Rice farms in the U.S. have an average of 7.8 kilograms of waste per hectare, while in China, which is home of more rice farmers than any other country in the whole world, that figure is about 2.2 kilograms.
It’s a tiny difference, but rice is the most valuable crop in the entire world, and it’s also the least-consumed in the developing world.
According to the UNAIDS report, it takes more than 200 kilograms of rice to feed the average person in Africa.
In India, that number is just about 7.9 kilograms.
And in the Middle Eastern countries that rely on rice for a substantial portion of their food, it would take at least 1,000 kilograms of grain for a person to live on.
Even in those countries, however, rice farmers are struggling.
About 70 percent of rice farmers have to move to more sustainable production methods.
For many farmers, the move is even more painful than the move from rice to other crops.
It is a struggle, and one that many rice producers are doing in ways that might seem unusual to outsiders.
The process of moving to a different rice cultivation method is a long one.
Many rice farmers choose to use a technique called long-grain rice, which uses a longer grain that grows in more tightly packed, shallow, and open soil, instead of shorter, wider, and more shallow rice.
The rice that they grow now will grow slower and be more prone to rust, while the rice that grows now will be more resistant to rust.
The long-grained rice in use is also more expensive.
According a 2014 study by the University of Pennsylvania, long-grain rice costs $12 to $17 per kilogram.
That’s a lot of money for a crop that produces just about as much as a typical wheat crop.
But in countries that have less than half the land that the United State does,
