When the rice grain is fully absorbed with water and in a state of full water with a warm temperature (from 30 degrees Celsius or more), it will germinate easily. To do so, the rice seed must be soaked in warm water 54 degrees Celsius and changed the water every 2 to 4 hours.

There are also the following ways to handle rice

Treat with lime water diluted 2-4%: mix water in the ratio of 3 boiling 2 cold, the amount of water to be mixed needs to be 3 to 5 times more than the rice to be treated, soak for 3 to 5 minutes.

Some other notes

Should only use cotton, cotton or rattan bags to set up the silage Absolutely do not use plastic bags to store rice.

If the rice seeds are soaked in cold weather for a long time, it is necessary to sow the seeds when the rice seeds have just cracked. Do not leave the rice seeds in the compost pile for too long because this will cause the rice seeds to die due to the starch being discharged out.

If using straw or mulch, it must be compacted and at the same time not allowed to let the cold wind pass through. If using kitchen ash for incubation, the outside of the bag should be covered with a soft damp cloth so that the ash does not absorb water from the rice seeds in the bag, ensuring enough moisture for the rice to germinate.
