Yeah... there should be a rice crop. I'm guessing it's probably an oversight at this point.

Pretty much every crop currently grown could believably be planted in a freshly tilled field and reasonably cared for, but i believe rice is a bit more finicky, and prone to weed growth and dehydration when planted in dry soil, which is why rice is grown in flooded fields where the crop itself is submerged beneath a layer of water.

Theres no way of replicating this effect in game at this time, and likely never will, so its best to look at it from this perspective: The fruits and vegetables and such that can be planted and grown in the climate, soil, and weather conditions of the valley are the ones you have the ability to plant.

it would be nice to have more crops, but eric(conserned ape) said he's focusing on fixing the beta first because of the multiple bugs that people got. so i think it wont be happening for a while.

If you want a motivation for how it's possible to grow rice on your farm, I present to you: the lake. Or pond, or puddle, or whatever you'd like to call it. Every farm layout has still water to use for this, and hey, if you want to go heavy on rice production, that'd be one of the few benefits of the Riverland farm.

Look at it this way - if CA puts in more features before the majority of MP bugs are ironed out, there will just be more bugs, only these ones would be crop related.

necroing a year old thread to say. let there be rice.

There are Rice Shoots now for growing Rice. ^ w ^ It's a spring plant so i think pierre sells it during spring (I was lucky to have found one from the Traveling cart)
It's grown better near water but you can't grow it in water. (i tried)

Being able to grow rice is twice as nice!

sadly he doesnt, i've only found rice from fish treasure chests and from the dig spot worms in the ground

You can also get them from the grub bugs in the first mine. I don't know if that was intentional or not.

in my game, pierre sells it during spring, im on my year 5

It's a spring crop, if you're buying from Pierre. You can also get it as a monster drop in the sewers (bugs/flies), and from some mine enemies (bugs again, I think, but I wasn't paying close attention). I was hoping I could turn it into sake in a keg, but I just got "unmilled rice juice". Can be processed in a mill into cooking rice.
