The climate here is warmer than that of the general areas at the same altitude, and it is cooler than that of hills and flat dams. The temperature difference between day and night is smaller, which prolongs the filling and ripening period of rice, increases the content of dextrin and dendrimer, and has no high temperature and heat phenomenon. In addition, the daily range of soil temperature is large, which is conducive to the accumulation of nutrients during the day and reduces the respiratory consumption at night 。
