Paddy is grown in the rainy season because paddy, i.e., rice, is a water-intensive crop. According to research, paddy crops require around 10 mm of water every day. About 1350 billion cubic meters of water are consumed in rice farms annually, which is around 21% of the global water use for crop production. 

That’s why the rainy season is perfect for cultivating rice crops because 51% of the country’s net sown area practices rainfed agriculture, and around 70% of India’s rural population depends on rainfall for irrigation water. China is the largest producer of rice in the world, followed by India, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Vietnam, etc.
