    Yes, rice is a relatively environemntally friendly crop. It does not deplete soil of its nutrients and rather, has positive effects on soil that can help grow other crops. For example, rice crops provide land that is hat has been leveled, does not require a preplant insecticide, has fewer weeds, exhibits improved tilth, and produces up to 20% more yield of sugarcane, so sugarcane production increases after being planted on land that has grown rice. “Environmentally, rice fields provide for increased water storage, improved fertilizer efficiency, and expanded habitat for wildlife.”
