The rice art, which will show farmers wearing straw hats and using sickles to harvest rice will depict the traditions and way of life of Thai rice farmers. The field will be planted with two varieties of organic rice. The first variety, Chai-nat 1, is an irrigated local rice variety and the second is Khum Phayao, a traditional black rice variety.Locations:Ratchaburi-Southeast Asia-ThailandDate:23 Mar, 2009Credit:© Vinai Dithajohn / GreenpeaceMaximum size:3504px X 2337pxKeywords:Aerial view-Agricultural land-Agriculture-Farms-Fields-KWCI (GPI)-Organic farming-Rice-Rice is Life (campaign title)-Rural scenes-SAGE (campaign title)-Sustainable agricultureShoot:Organic Rice Art Documentation in ThailandHundreds of Greenpeace supporters, volunteers and farmers planted organic rice in a bid to create the first ever art on a rice field in Thailand. The 10-rai rice field in Ratchaburi province will grow into a beautiful art in the next 4 months to show an image of farmers wearing straw hats and using sickle to harvest rice. The rice art, which celebrates Thailand's rich rice heritage, is meant to remind governments to protect the region's most important food crop from the imminent threat of genetic engineering, as well as from the grave impacts of climate change. The shoot includes images of organic rice fields and the preparation of organic rice noodles.
