Paddy (rice plant) is a Kharif crop that is planted in the season of July-October (Summer) towards the southwest monsoon.

Rice crop requires more amount of water during irrigation as water and soil sediments assist rice plants in controlling the optimum temperature and maintain humidity in the surrounding area.
