Hey there Peter,  A lot of people end up burning the weeds off but that kills the nutrients in the soil.  It's more worth it to remove the weeds the right way, and very difficult, chopping them very short, so that one can then get in with tiller machinery to dig into the soil and turn it.  After the first rice crop, it's advisable to grow corn or another crop, which keeps the cycle of nutrients in balance.
