    Rice planting season

    Every year, with the arrival of spring, Mazandarani farmers and rice growers start filling agricultural lands with water and preparing them for planting rice in both traditional and mechanized ways. Rice planting is one of the stages of rice cultivation in which sprouts that have been prepared in storehouses are planted in the ground.
