Promotion of Jasmine Rice Farming in Rasi Salai District, Sisaket Province
18 May 2022
C.P. Intertrade Co., Ltd. encouraged farmers to plant jasmine rice and contracted to repurchase it to increase the farmers’ income. This also allowed us to transfer knowledge to the farmers about jasmine rice farming in accordance with the GAP standard that has been certified by the Rice Department. The methods that were taught helped increase productivity, were environmentally friendly, added value and contributed to the reduction of GHG emissions from 4.40 to 4.06 kg CO2 e per kilogram of rice. The rice packaging from this project also received a carbon footprint label.
