rice crops for flood farmers

Farmers in Bangladesh make the most of the floods that are part of their everyday lives. Rice needs water to grow, and flourishes on the flood plains and deltas of rivers. The seasonal floods mean that farmers can grow three crops of rice each year. But severe or unexpected floods can still devastate crops, uprooting and damaging plants, and dumping huge amounts of silt in paddy fields. - Violent Planet, Ticktock
