In agriculture, the term is known as the growing season. However, there are still many farmers or actors in the agricultural sector who ignore this term. In fact, this understanding has a role that allows actors in the agricultural sector to get directions for plant cultivation, especially food crops.

This corresponds to what the growing season itself means. The planting season is a certain time that is used as the initial stage of planting (eg rice and so on). In Indonesia, it is known that there are three planting seasons in one year, namely the main planting season, the gadu growing season, and the dry planting season.

The main planting season is the planting season which is carried out during the rainy season in both wet soil (soil with good drainage) and dry soil (rainfed). The main growing season starts from November to March.

The gadu planting season is a planting season where there is no irrigation and relies on rainwater or rainfed.

The gadu planting season starts from April to July. Dry planting season with a record of the irrigation system or irrigation must be good. This dry growing season occurs in August, September, and October.

Although rice can be planted all year round, farmers basically grow rice based on the availability of water.

Then how long does it take to harvest rice

Rice harvest time must be done correctly, because it affects the quality of grain or rice. To determine the time / period of rice harvest, you can use visual observations and theoretical observations. Visual observations were made based on the appearance of rice in the paddy fields.

The harvest period is done when the rice grains are golden yellow by 90-95%. Where these conditions will produce good rice and mills. While theoretical observations can be seen based on rice varieties and measurement of water content using a moisture tester.

Judging from the variety, rice harvest age is around 30-35 days after growing flowers evenly. Judging from the measurement of water content during the dry season around 22-23% and when it rains around 24-26%.
