Farmers in Thailand and other countries are affected by climate change.

When the rice lacks the rain.

A few years ago everything seemed better. Between June and September it rained frequently and continuously. Today, however, many rice farmers in Thailand and other countries have the impression that the weather has become unpredictable. Meanwhile, scientists warn that climate change threatens the food base of millions of people..

“In the past, we had enough water to grow rice,” says farmer Sa-Ing Suriya in the Thai province of Chachoengsao. But that was no longer the case. The rainy season is getting shorter. The past three years in particular have been a tough time for Sa-Ing Suriya and many other rice farmers in the province. “For example, it happens that” there is too much rain in one month and none in the next, “reports the 44-year-old. Chachoengsao is located in central Thailand, a good two hours’ drive east of the capital Bangkok. Parts of the province consist of the lowlands of the Bangpakong river basin. Almost 1.3 million people live there from the cultivation of rice and fruits as well as from fishing. According to the environmental organization Greenpeace, the 7,900 square kilometer area is not only known for Thai jasmine rice, but is also considered one of the most fertile river basins in the world. Coastal erosion is one of the biggest problems. According to environmentalists, it is already foreseeable today that this garden of Eden will be massively threatened by climate change: not only due to flooding and droughts, but also due to the penetration of salt water and the crumbling of the coasts. “Thailand is one of the countries where coastal erosion is one of the biggest problems,” says Thai Greenpeace activist Tara Buakamsri in Bangkok. “In general, Southeast Asia is one of the regions most affected by climate change but least prepared for it. »Ever more extreme weather conditions caused by climate change have serious consequences – for food production and the people who make a living from it. Although Thailand is still the largest rice exporter in the world, you can feel the longer-term effects. “In agriculture, farmers are increasingly having to deal with uncertainties,” says Tara Buakamsri. A study shows that, for example, rice production in some regions of the northeast has decreased by about 50 percent in the past ten years. This is a vicious cycle for many rice farmers in Thailand. They are among the poorest sections of the population anyway. They are forced to apply for loans to re-order their fields. However, if they are then unable to grow as much rice as in the previous year, they have to borrow more and more money and become heavily indebted. “It is a cycle that they cannot escape”, criticizes Tara Buakamsri. Rice farmer Sa-Ing Suriya also reports harsher conditions. Especially if it doesn’t rain enough or not at all in their Chachoengsao province: “If you don’t have a water source near the farm, you have to have the water brought in.” And that means higher costs and less earnings. Since they receive almost no information about climate change from the local authorities, the rice farmers have joined together on a small initiative. Your group leader will keep you up to date with current climate developments.

MGP-bio defies climate change

The plant is almost immune to negative stress factors such as environmental and weather influences by maintaining its natural health; In the event of prolonged drought, even continuous growth with MGP-bio was observed – while in comparison the chemically fertilized rice plantations stopped growing and even threatened to wither.
Fast germination times and high germ counts thanks to resistant, strong seeds from our own production with positive tolerance behavior, permanent growth even under bad weather conditions, high yields and healthy fruit formation, short growing season until the harvest phase – all advantages that the rice grower feels on the bottom line and contributes to securing their livelihood.

MGP-bio: The Answer To Climate Change !!!

This one about Nakhon Ratchasima (see movie)2019

And this is also Nakhon Ratchasima (Prathai).But here sprayed with MGP-bio 2019.Where does this difference come from ???            Why don’t you see a film of this Nakhon Ratachima????                  Here to the map where we sprayed MGP-bio

On June 7, 2019 we sprayed MGP-bio for the first time, the rice was 20 cm high.
On June 29, 2019 we sprayed MGP-bio the second time, the rice was 40 cm high and it grew 20 cm without rain, only with the water from the morning dew

Drought-resistant plants by MGP-bio,
that means high protection against possible crop failures

Understanding!!!

In 2019 we sprayed MGP-bio (a fertilizer made of 100% natural rock calcite) 3 times the rice in Prathai (Nakhon Ratchasima)
The farmer had more than 200% crop yield in 2019 than in 2018.
So what’s up with climate change ??
We don’t have to believe it anymore, we know it !!
Because knowledge is power and if I know more, I can do more.

Your plants only need nature (MGP-bio)
