Choose the correct answer:

Asia accounts for ___________ of the world’s rice production.
A) 98%

B) 80%

C) 75%

Answer :

Rice is the staple diet crop especially for the regions surrounding the tropical areas of the world. A hot, humid and moist condition is required for the excellent growth of the crop. It gives the best yield in the alluvial soil that has rich nutrients because of the deposition by the flow of rivers and water bodies over time. It results in the formation of river beds and ensures the development of smooth and fertile soil ideal for cultivation. Since it requires an average temperature of 24 ̊ and an average rainfall of 150cm, it can be considered as a tropical crop. Asia, being in the tropical zone is the largest producer of rice that accounts for 98% of the global production. The main centres of production are China, India, Bangladesh and Indonesia.
