Abstract. The study was conducted to ascertain the cultivation practices of upland rice farmers in Cagayan province, Philippines. The study was conducted for a period of one year from July to June covering the wet planting season and dry planting season. 1. There are rice relatives in other parts of the world, too. The genus Oryza is among the most ancient grasses and was able to spread to every continent before they drifted too far apart. The result is that different Oryza species are strung out over the tropical regions of the globe, including South America and Australia. Only one species in Asia and one in Africa were domesticated, . But with about 70 per cent of West Africa's 20 million rice farmers growing upland rice — and a majority of them women — WARDA decided that it was vital to focus on this “particular sector. A paddy field is a flooded parcel of arable land used for growing semiaquatic crops, most notably rice and originates from the Neolithic rice-farming cultures of the Yangtze River basin in southern China, associated with pre-Austronesian and Hmong-Mien cultures. It was spread in prehistoric times by the Austronesian expansion to Island Southeast Asia, Madagascar, China:
