10 Largest Rice Producing Countries

# 10 Largest Rice Producing Countries

Rice is among the three leading food crops of the world, with maize (corn) and wheat being the other two. All three directly provide no less than 42% of the world’s required caloric intake and, in 2009, human consumption was responsible for 78% of the total usage of produced rice. More than 3.5 billion of the world’s population think of rice as their staple food, which translates to at least half of the people living in the world. Because of this, experts do not see a future decline of rice consumption, especially among African and Asian countries.

The Asian continent dominates in terms of global rice production, with China and India leading the way.
