Another second step of the rice season 2020 in Pua

Farming in Pua, North Thailand

In my serie of farming this time another way of planting rice. You might remember the posting about the first step where the farmers plant rice on small dry plots of land. After that begins the second step and that is replanting this rice on bigger plot of land that are full of water. And in the old days and still mostly today that is done by a big group of people and it is done by hand. But as there are less and less people farming there are also small machines that can help you to do the planting of the rice. Then you can do it all alone! So the second step is a little bit different but that also means the first step was a little bit different. This morning a farmer arrived with a rice planting machine. This is a small car with 2 wheels. This small car has a cargo bay where you put the young rice plants. Then you start to walk with the machine over the rice paddy and under the car are small hands that put the young rice plants into the soil. Following is a serie of photos of the job done by a nearby farmer. For more information about Nan province see Destination Travel Guide Nan.
