Rice plays an important role in food supply in Bhutan and is cultivated largely for domestic consumption. With its annual bounties of paddy, Trongsa (Tangsibji) is justly considered to be the rice bowl of the country. The region’s farms produce some of the finest yields of Bhutan’s staple red rice – pale pink, soft and slightly sticky – which is increasingly exported today. The other major rice growing areas are Punakha, Paro, Trongsa  and Wangduephodrang.
