Transition from Wet Paddy Field to the Well-Drained Ones

Most of rice fields in the city area lie on alluvial lands along rivers. They are mainly wet paddies which yield low harvest.

Improvements of rice fields were conducted in the areas respectively during 1910s just after the major flood and during 1940s after the war. Consequently, wet paddies were converted to well-drained paddies where off season crops became possible such as wheat and potato other than rice.
