Female and male labourers transplant 'Basmati' rice paddy in a field at Kurukshetra in Haryana, India. Basmati is a fragrant long grain rice grown in the Gangetic plains of the Indian subcontinent comprising of India, Pakistan and Nepal. The seed is broadcast manually in a nursery during the warm and humid pre-monsoon climate in the months of May-June. When the plant grows to about 10 inches, it is transplanted manually to a well irrigated field, where it grows till maturity. In India, Haryana is the largest producing state, accounting for about 60% of the total production.
