Paddy cultivation


Sri Lanka is an agricultural country and therefore, rice is the staple food of the inhabitants of Sri Lanka. Paddy cultivation is given the utmost importance in the agricultural field. It is a land on which farmers cultivate paddy. Ancient and traditional farmers are good in cultivating. Ancient Ceylon was considered as the foremost paddy exporter in the world. Then Ceylon was popularly known as "the great barn of the East". This was during the reign of King Parakramabahu. Paddy crops are cultivated in wetlands in all districts of Sri Lanka during the two monsoon seasons known as Maha and Yala seasons.
