Malaysia is about 65% self-sufficient in rice. The rest is imported, especially high quality, fragrant rice. Although per capita consumption has fallen from 110 to 93 kg over the past to decades, rice is still the staple food in this country.

Topography plays a role in overall rice production. The four main rice environments are irrigated, partially irrigated, rainfed lowland and upland. Ricefields in Peninsular Malaysia are predominantly irrigate low-land. In Sabah and Sarawak, rainfed and upland rice are more important. Acute labor shortage has been alleviated by farm mechanization.
