A '''paddy field''' is a flooded parcel of [[arable land]] used for growing [[rice]] and other [[Aquatic plant|semiaquatic crops]]. Rice can also be grown in dry-fields, but from the twentieth century paddy field agriculture became the dominant form of growing rice. Paddy fields are a typical feature of [[rice]]-growing countries of [[East Asia|east]], [[South Asia|south]] and [[southeastඅග්නිදිග Asiaආසියාව]], including [[Cambodia]], [[Bangladesh]], [[People's Republic of China|China]], [[India]], [[ඉන්දුනීසියාව]], [[Japan]], [[Korea]], [[Malaysia]], [[Myanmar]], [[Nepal]], [[Pakistan]], the [[Philippines]], [[Sri Lanka]], [[Taiwan]], [[Thailand]], and [[Vietnam]]. They are also found in other rice-growing regions such as [[Piedmont]] (Italy), the [[Camargue]] (France) and the [[Artibonite]] Valley (Haiti), and the remains of rice paddies still define much of landscape of the [[Carolina Lowcountry]].
 
Paddy fields can be built adjacent to otherwise natural areas such as [[river]]s or [[marshes]]. They can be constructed, often on steep hillsides with much [[manual labour|labor]] and materials. The fields require large quantities of [[water]] for [[irrigation]]. Flooding provides water essential to the growth of the crop. Water also provides a favorable environment for the rice strains being grown as well as discouraging the growth of many [[species]] of [[weed]]s. The [[Domestic buffalo|water buffalo]] is the only [[working animal]] adapted for life in [[wetlands]] so they are extensively used in paddy fields.
