This is rice plantation in my place and that rice plants are almost ready for harvesting. You know the rice fruits can be harvested when the color turns from green to golden yellow. The rice plants turn to yellow, the leaves and fruits from very green to yellow. So, the whole field transform from green to yellow. Actually, it will take 110 days from transplanting till you can harvest for grains. Usually starts from the month of June to October-- the rainy season of my country. So now, the whole field/surrounding is planted with rice. Its a beautiful landscape if greens and yellow. Not until the farmers harvest them, the field is a nature's wonder in flat and uniform color.

I hope the farmers there have a very productive crop. Some of our farmers grow canola and that makes the paddocks very colourful too.

@ilocosboy It is sometimes called rapeseed. We buy canola oil in the shops for cooking.

Hoping that they will have a bountiful harvest with that farm as Typhoon is very active at this point in time. I know farmers did their very best to produce and take good care of it. The typhoons are the only real threat to them right now beside the pest and disease which can happen along..

As of now no major damages and insects affect the crop, lets hope it will stay that way until farmers harvest their rice.
