Rice is the basic food of the Chinese. Although the Chinese find evidence that rice is originating in this country, other countries of minor Asia claim also the primacy. In all the cases China is the first producing one of this universally appreciated cereal: pour Asian it is the base of all the food, for the Africans, it is an alternative food source, for Europeans and the Americans, it is a vegetable to be cooked with the meat - thing which is not done in China. Rice is consumed in China like bread, therefore in its form of origin: white and pure.
Contrary to the generally accepted idea, there is only half of China - the part of the South of China, i.e. at the Southern side of the river Yangzi (Yantze, Yangzi Jiang). The North of China does not produce rice because of the climate much less mild. In this septentrional part, one cultivates the corn, the sorghum, the corn. For the Chinese originating in the South in China and who grew at the side of the rice plantations, in < b>campagne of fish and riz, they always knew that it was a great privilege to have rice compared to people of North who have only "hard" food.
The rice plantations must be constantly flooded for the development of rice. Pluviometry must reach more than 1 000 mm/an to maintain the water level constant under the sun of subtropical summer.
The Chinese work from generation to generation in a practically immutable way.
