    Plant/grow rice

    1. The farmer grows rice on the farm.
    2. The farmer plants rice on the farm.
    #1 is correct. Is #2 also acceptable?

    They're both acceptable, but I think 2 focuses more on the act of planting itself, whereas 1 speaks more of the whole process from beginning to end.
