Rakantha Province was a geographical region on Bajor. Once one of the most productive agricultural lands on the planet, it was poisoned during the Cardassian Occupation and became barren wasteland.

Three residents of Rakantha, Ishan Chaye, Jillur Gueta, and Timor Landi came aboard Deep Space 9 in 2366. (DS9: "Things Past")

In 2371, the Bajoran Agricultural Ministry developed soil reclamators that could detoxify the soil. Kai Winn Adami, during her brief tenure as First Minister of Bajor, ordered the reclamators be deployed to Rakantha in the hopes of growing cash crops for export, such as boton, moreka, and salam grass. However, the reclamators had already been promised to Dahkur Province, and Winn's attempts to force their early removal nearly led to civil war. (DS9: "Shakaar")

In 2374, instability in the Bajoran wormhole caused by the Reckoning led to widespread flooding in Rakantha, destroying two-thirds of the wheat harvest. (DS9: "The Reckoning")

In 2375, Captain Benjamin Sisko attended a conference in Rakantha Province. (DS9: "Penumbra")

According to the Star Trek: Star Charts (p. 42), this province was located in Bajor's northern hemisphere.
