Rice Harvest

Posted by
GJC (Kyoto, Japan) on 19 September 2012 in Landscape & Rural.

I am always deeply impressed by the amount of back-breaking labor that goes into growing rice, and I have featured that very often (see for example here, and here and here).
Of course luckily for the farmers, much of the hardest part of planting and harvesting is done by machines like this harvester. The blue bags in the foreground are the cleanly picked rice just off-loaded from the machine making its way around the field.
