Thailand Improving Production of Export Quality Fragrant Rice
Thailand is speeding measures to improve the production of high quality 'Hom Mali' or fragrant rice for export at Tung Kula Rong Hai in the Northeast, a senior Agriculture and Cooperatives Ministry official said on Wednesday. The total area of 2.1 million rai (some 830,000 acres) of Tung Kula Rong Hai covers parts of five provinces in the Northeast -- Roi Et, Surin, Si Sa Ket, Maha Sarakham and Yasothon.

Ministry Inspector General Surapong Pransilpa said at a seminar on upgrading the variety of rice that the quality Hom Mali rice production project this year had intensified since the cabinet gave the green light in 2004.

Officials attending the seminar would be briefed on maintaining good quality Hom Mali rice, he said.

Community rice centres were assigned to distribute high quality seed rice to farmers to maintain the quality of rice from the first growing method.

The cabinet in 2004 acted to launch the project in 2005 to grow high quality Hom Mali rice for export at Tung Kula Rong Hai.

Tung Kula Rong Hai was once one of the most unproductive areas in Thailand. Some parts are sandy, some have saline soil, while other areas are acid sulfatel.

Water supply is out of control -- too little rain in the early cultivation time but floods at the end of the season. Drought occupies the areas in the dry season.

At present, Tung Kula Rong Hai is developed by the state-run Land Development Department in conjunction with private agencies and is considered one of Thailand's major rice production areas.
