Yes, most famously for the rice paddies in Southeast Asia. It is also used in Peru, Italy and other places to grow crops on hill and mountainsides and in Nepal to reduce environmental degradation. Wikipedia provides a number of nice pictures of terrace farming around the world: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terrace_(agriculture).
Yes. It is a good method for growing crops that consume a lot of water (such as rice), as well as being much more efficient in a mountainous or hilly terrain. It simplifies sowing and harvesting, while also allowing more water to get absorbed by the soil than a steep slope. It is common in places in Philippines and Indonesia, and is used all over the world.
