Rice fields/OWT


Rice farming is a major agriculture industry in the Philippines.  No meal is complete without rice---breakfast, lunch or dinner, rice is always a part of every meal.  But there is more to rice fields than its use for growing rice.  A wide range of plants and animal species exist in rice fields.  It's one of the biggest ecosystems that can be found in the tropics.  

This is one of the rice fields we passed by while riding through the backroads of Negros Occidental.
