Second step of the rice season 2020 in Pua

Removing & bundeling the rice plants in Pua, North Thailand

In my serie of farming this week the farmers started with the second step of the rice season of this year. You might remember the posting about the first step where the farmers plant rice on small dry plots of land. Well that was 2 weeks ago and the rice has been growing fast to small size now. So now begins the second step and that is replanting this rice on bigger plot of land that are full of water. Here that is done very carefully and the rice is planted in rows. In the early morning a group of farmers meet to first take the small rice out of the small plot of land and make small bundles of them. Then they are brought to a larger plot of land with water, most times just next to the small plot of land. And then the rice bundles are planted in small parts in a line. After one plot is done the all group of farmers move to the next plot from another farmer. Following are more photos of rice farming in Pua, all made by my wife while having a chat with the farmers.
