OUR ORGANIC FARMING

Keeping in view the potential of Organic rice business the company started Organic farming on its own farms. Since our family had all the basic knowledge of rice farming therefore, it was not difficult for us to convert our land into Organic practice and today we can produce around 3000 M.Tons Organic paddy in our own farms.

Our Organic farming methods conserve water resources, build soil integrity and support a healthier ecosystem.

At Rice Experts Enterprises, we specialize in Organic Basmati and Organic Long Grain nothing fancy there, just lots of natural deliciousness.

Organic rice production starts with the use of high quality non-GMO seed. This is followed through with an ongoing commitment to improving soil quality while using a range of natural measures to minimize the impact of pests and weeds without resorting to chemical herbicides and pesticides.

Soil fertility

  • Unlike conventional rice growers, who routinely apply chemical fertilizers to the soil, organic rice farmers use a range of natural measures to maintain and enhance soil fertility.
  • This generally involves crop rotation with deep-rooted legume crops or green manure/cover crops.
  • Leguminous green-manure crops supply up to 50 percent of the nitrogen needs of high-yielding rice varieties.
  • Other measures organic rice farmers use to enhance and maintain soil fertility include encouraging native water fowl to rest during winter months, applying rock minerals, animal manures, composts, and other USDA & E.U. approved organic amendments.

Controlling pests

  • Controlling pests and disease is a constant challenge for both conventional and organic rice growers.
  • The biggest pest problem facing rice growers are rice water weevils, whose larvae attach to the roots of young plants and severely reduce the root system. Plants with reduced root systems grow poorly and have low yields.
  • Another problem is shrimp, which feed on newly germinated rice plants.
  • Diseases can also attack both seedlings and mature plants.
  • Excessive soil nitrogen levels in conventional rice production often arise due to high quantities of chemical fertilizer being applied to the soil. Unlike organic farming, which does not lead to excessive soil nitrogen levels, this encourages sheath blight, kernel smut, and other diseases.
  • Conventional farmers address pest control by routinely applying chemical pesticides to rice crops.
  • Timely planting, variety selection, and cultural practices to suppress weeds and encourage dense stands of rice are the main methods used by organic rice farmers to control pests and disease.

Managing weeds

  • Managing weeds is one of the major challenges associated with organic rice production. Unlike conventional farmers, organic rice farmers do not use chemical herbicides.
  • Instead, crop rotations, land leveling, seedbed preparation, water management, and rotary hoeing are the main ways organic rice farmers control weeds.
  • Crop rotations are particularly important in organic rice production. Crop rotations reduce weed pressure by interrupting weed life cycles and reducing the number of weed seeds in the soil.
  • Field flooding is also used to suppress weeds directly and as a means of giving rice crops an advantage over competing weeds.

Plantation

  • It is said the most difficult job in the world is to transplant rice into fields. In the month of June under the burning sun where the temperature reaches upto 53 degree farmers transplant the paddy into their farms under the burning sun.
  • Each plant is transplant by hand so one can imagine how much human efforts involved in rice.
