Of 23 Oryza species, two are cultivated: Oryza sativa (left), which originated in the humid tropics of Asia, and O. glaberrima, from West Africa. Asian cultivated rice has evolved into three eco-geographic races (indica, japonica and javanica). Rice is now cultivated in 113 countries and on all the continents except Antarctica. Rice-based production systems span from northern China to southern Australia, from the tropical rain forests of central Africa to the continental temperate zone in the Russian Federation, from the arid climate of the Nile Delta and the sea-level regions in Guinea-Bissau, to the Himalayan mountains.
indica - this is the kind of rice that comes from korea.. normally more common growing on the backs of excels and accents in the form of T wings.. sometimes this can gather around the bottom of these cars forming a kind of 'bodykit'.

japonica - this is the most fearful rice.. it means business. you see a low slung coupe and yo uthink its growing a bit of indica, but you soon realise you're wrong when the thing blasts off toward the horizon in a cloud of duurrrift smoke and turbo whine. most non rice lovers take this over other kinds.

javanica - this is often called 'fake rice'... i tends to grow inside engine bays in the form of fake sound/smoke producing devices. also known to fester inside the interior of the car itself form large subwoofers and amplifiers.. only ever seen in packs of 8+ subwoofers/amps but amazingly even in such large numbers it will only grow that was in a small car.

one day i might visit a rice based production plant.. maybe.. buuuuut the mitsubishi production plant doesnt really interest me.
