What are the steps of growing rice?

Rice requires full sun, a long growing season, and lots of water to grow properly. First you will soak your seeds in water for between 12 to 24 hours. Then, you will plant the seeds in a soil which is slightly acidic and flood the soil with between 2 to 7 inches of water after you've covered them with compost to keep them down. As the seeds sprout up, you will want to think them so that the plants are around 4 inches apart. You will want to keep the water level consistent throughout the growing process. Once the plants reach about 15 inches tall, you will want to let the water drain and wait until the plants turn a golden color. Once they have turned gold, it is time to harvest them and dry them so that the hulls can be separated from the grains.
