Sri Lanka is one of the oldest traditional agriculture civilisations in the Asian region with rice cultivation being the primary production activity in the country.

Rice represents more than just a dietary staple; it is a labour of love that also plays an integral role in Sri Lanka’s cultural life for celebrations, rituals and religious practices
