Rice Farming

in Malaysia

Paddy field are typically found on Peninsular Malaysia, in most of its regions. The most scenic paddy fields are located in northern Malaysia, in Kedah, almost covering this states. The landscape is dominated by seemingly never ending paddy fields. Kedah is called the rice bowl of Malaysia.

Before Malaysia became heavily reliant on its industrial output, people were mainly involved in agriculture, especially in the production of rice. It was for that reason, that people usually built their houses next to paddy fields.

Rice is a crucial part of everyday Malaysian diet. In 1998, Malaysia produced 1.94 million metric tons of rice. The average Malaysian citizen consumes 82.3 kilograms of rice per year.

History of 

Kampung Terus, Penanti

Under British rule, Tengku Sulaiman – the younger brother of Sultan Abdullah of Kedah – led some 45,000 people to Kampung Terus. Most of them were prominent farmers from Alor Setar, and their mission was to plant rice and build up the underground state administration.

 

Kampong Kota, as it was known at the time, became the first settlement in Central Seberang Perai, while Sungai Terus served as the main transportation route. Sultan Abdullah settled here, where the British defended him from the Siamese army.

 

Kampung Kubu, also within the vicinity, became a fortress, protecting the community from Siamese attacks. The story is often related to locals and tourists to remind them of the importance of padi to Seberang Perai.
