Rice is the staple in the diet for much of the world. It runs a close second to wheat in its importance as a food cereal in the human diet. About 670 Million Metric Tons of rice is grown annually compared to 680 MMT for wheat, 440 MMT for oil seeds, and 1090 MMT for coarse grains (corn, sorghum, barley, oats, rye, millet and mixed grains.) Most coarse grains go into animal feed where its impact on the human diet is not as great (eight lbs. of grain are needed to produce one lb. of beef). Rice produces more food energy per acre than other cereal grains, and is second only to wheat in terms of protein per acre produced. Rice production has more than doubled in the last 40 years. Most of the increase in production has been a result of improved field yields. Acreage planted in rice has only increased about 30 per cent. Rice is best grown in flooded fields and so acreage is limited by soil type and supply of water.
Open Access journals make a quick review of articles and inform the authors within twenty one days of submission with the help of 3000 editorial team and quality review board which is ready to offer useful and informative results. Most of the peer-reviewed open access journals of OMICS Group is indexed in well-known indexing services like PubMed, Scopus, AGORA, ISI, ProQuest, Gale, Chemical Abstracts, and HINARI etc. Articles published in OMICS Group journals are permanently archived in the respective peer reviewed journals thus providing immediate and permanent access to individual papers and application of the scientific information. So, it is providing chance to get attract more number of students towards scientific research.
