Case Study: Intensive Rice Farming in the Ganges Delta

Subjects / Geography / Farming

Price: £1.95 Duration: 13mins Full topic price: £14.95

South East Asia is one of the most densely populated areas in the world. Over a billion people live in India alone. Rice is the staple, or main, food crop. South East Asia is also home to some of the poorest people on the planet who depend on rice to survive.  Without this staple crop over a billion people would potentially face starvation. This case study will examine the location, physical and human factors, as well as the problems and solutions of rice farming in the Ganges Delta.
