Where do you get rice from?

Rice is a type of grass which has been cultivated and improved in yield by man over many thousands of years. Seedlings are hand planted in flooded fields called paddy's. The rice growws in the fertile mud and the field is maintained at knee depth until it bears a seed head. Water is then drained from the rice paddy which tricks the plant into thinking there is a drought. The rice head quickly fills out with fat grains in order to complete it's life cycle.
The rice is harvested and threshed with a rice flail. The rice husks are winnowed in the breeze to separate the rice grains.
