Rice Farming And The Seasons
How does scientific data influence farming and agricultural practices
Created By: Harrison Early and Jacky Xie
The cause of the seasons
and the Earths tilt
*The seasons are caused by sunlight hitting different parts on earth, resulting in different climates in the world.

*The effect is only caused by the earth's tilt, which is 23.5º.
Rice Farming
Rice Farming In Australia
And The Seasons
*If the tilt becomes larger (e.g.65.5º), the seasons would differ greatly.

*It would increase the average temperature of summer and at the same time decreasing the average temperature of winter.

*Extreme climatic conditions will occur.
What if the Earths tilt was different?
Rice Farming cont.
The agricultural practice of rice farming requires extensive knowledge of the seasons, including the climatic data and rainfall.
Harvesting rice usually occurs
in Autumn, where the climate is
mildly cold and are the perfect
conditions for harvesting rice.
Australian rice suits our hot climate, thriving in the humid conditions in Summer. The varieties likewise do not
need that much water/rainfall. Victoria’s climate in summer does not feature much rainfall, so growing rice is an effective method that suits our seasons.
Data Between Seasons and Climate
Australia’s climate features extensive periods of drought in some areas, and it can happen frequently. Australia’s average daily temperatures have also risen in the past few decades. Rainfall has also declined, but there were also long-term rainfall deficiencies, resulting in floods. This could be a result of global warming, or a climatic shift in parts of Australia.
Scientific research has greatly affected the agricultural practices of growing rice.
Knowledge of the seasons is vital to ensure that the rice is harvested correctly and the conditions are suitable. The climatic data is not only important in the seasons but a general knowledge of the year and in your area. Rice does not survive in extensive periods of drought, or floods, so appropriate measures can be taken if the event is likely due to the climate shifts. For example, the high temperatures in Summer signal a variety of rice that grows in the conditions to be planted.

The amount of rainfall that the rice receives is also important. Scientific knowledge of the seasons and climate can predict which season has the most rainfall, so the farmers know when to make the best of the benefits.
This concept applies not only to rice farming, but to other agricultural practices, because they all require different climates.

Today we will be talking about how you, gorillas and coltan mining
are all interwoven together.
