Photographer's Note

Rice is the principal crop of Goa. There are two growing seasons, namely kharif (or sorod ,in Konkani, the Goan language) and rabi (vaingan). Kharif is grown in the monsoon, therefore doesn't need any irrigation, but rabi is grown during the dry season, (November to May) The main sources of irrigation for rabi crops are the rivers and streams, tanks, wells, and also canals.
This is such a canal, built during Portuguese time.

I start a theme, about my Goa landscape pictures...

Le riz est la principale culture a Goa. Si les pluies de la mousson permettent le récolte d'été, nommée "kharif", en hiver seuls les champs irrigues peuvent être cultives, donnant le "rabi" ou récolte de saison sèche.
Les sources d'eau pour le "rabi" sont les rivières et fleuves, les puits, et aussi un petit réseau de canaux... Ceci est un canal datant des Portugais...
