We need rain in Laos

Young Rice

It"s not only me sweating like crazy the whole day, it's more seriously about the farmers: They desperately need RAIN!

Rice seedlings in fields all around the country are struggling to grow as rainfall continues to be erratic, a problem which may impact on this wet season's rice production.

Only some are more lucky, if they can afford modern technology:

And while farmers with modern irrigation systems have little cause for
concern, this luxury is limited to a select few.

I am following a discussion on Laofab, about wether it's good or not for farmers to rent their fields to companies and make some extra money.
