Peng Qiugen decided to plant rice on the roof of his four storey house in Shaoxing in east China’s Zhejiang province as a novel way to farm in the overcrowded city.
Mr Qiugen planted the rice back in May on his 120-square-metre roof paddy and his crop is now ready to be harvested.
The rice paddy is expected to yield 120kg of rice grains.
