A line of people spread out along a ride paddy, bending down to plant seedlings.

Paddy rice transplanting is a laborious task. In some countries, women bear the bulk of this back-stressing work. However, in this area of Madagascar, women and men work together in transplanting rice seedlings. Another interesting feature of rice planting in this area is the cooperation of neighbors in planting individually owned plots.
