More than ninety percent of the world rice lands occur in monsoon Asia, of which nearly two-thirds are distributed in monsoon tropical Asia that extends to the east of the Indus and to the south.

A monsoon is a seasonal change in the direction of the prevailing, or strongest, winds of a region. Monsoons cause wet and dry seasons throughout much of the tropics.

Cassava, also known as yucca or manioc, is another basic starch. For many years, Japan was seen as the peculiar exception in Asia: a highly dynamic economy isolated in an otherwise moribund continent.

6 SUMMARY AND CONCLUSIONS 1. The rice economy is sharply skewed. Rice cultivation has provided the bulk of agricultural output and employment in most developing economies in Asia, by far the largest grower of this staple foodgrain. Asia also has the highest rates of rice consumption, averaging more than 79 kilograms ( pounds) per person annually.

As a result, the majority of Asia’s rice stays within the region and international trade rates are fairly low.
