To feed the world amid climate change is not easy, but the Thai-German Climate Programme (TGCP) – Agriculture project knows a better way for rice farmers to fight against it.
Rice farming in Thailand accounts for nearly 55% of the total greenhouse gas emissions of the agricultural sector and farm households increasingly face the negative impacts of climate change. In view of this, the rice sector needs well managed, national mitigation and adaptation actions as well as a database and reporting system for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and their reduction.
TGCP project helps not only farmers adapt its agricultural methods to mitigate and adapt to the impacts of climate change through this video.
The video shows the four technics on rice production. Starting with leveling the land by using laser technology called Laser land leveling (LLL), reducing water and cost of production on Alternative Wetting and Drying (AWD) technic, providing on Nutrient Management and managing on straw and stubble management in the field to reduce air pollution and greenhouse gas emission. These technics will be implemented with rice experts from Department of Agriculture (DOA) and GIZ Thailand under Thai Rice NAMA project.
Now, farmers can fight against the climate change with happiness.
