If rice starts are less than a foot tall, the machine is smaller than human size with a small boat that also has wheels.

Pretty cool though.

Whoa I had no idea that Rice stalks were less than a foot when planted! I thought they were bigger. Maybe it would be smarter to call them something other than rice. I tried to make the robot look like it is crouching down but I bet the whole thing looks weird when the plant I was trying to draw came out waaay taller than it was suppose to. Do you think I should call the crop something other than Rice to avoid confusion and cover my mistake?

I like the boat with wheels!

Well, Google can be a friend or enemy sometimes. I have never handled rice plants, but in movies and anime its shown pretty small, so I looked it up.

Unless the robot *needs* to be giant as a plot point, being slightly diminutive is probably fine. The year is also what again? Selective breeding, genetic drift, and genetic manipulation of rice could make a bigger start.

A late planting could also have bigger plants, especially if started with the earlier plantings.

Your call all around.

I think I'll leave it as it is without really mentioning what the water based crop is. As far as the robot's size I like it giant. It is suppose to be a general purpose Goa built device since they themselves are generally not very tall. Not a lot of the story so far really talks about the Goa, they just keep getting mentioned every so often.

Genetic drift is a smart explanation though; hmmm.

I was going to say they could have just evolved that way.
And then I saw on my head lima bean sized rice... Lol
