Northeast rice farmers gain subsidy to ease harvest costs

THE THAI Rice Exporters Association will subsidise Northeastern farmers at Bt200 per rai for no more than 10 rai each in an effort to help reduce harvest costs.

The initiative comes as Commerce Minister Apiradi Tantraporn stuck to the ministry’s target of 11 million tonnes of rice exports this year, after the nine-month figure came in at 8.97 million tonnes.

Apiradi said the association would launch its relief measure of the Bt200-per-rai subsidy for about 5,363 Northeastern farmer in 12 provinces, costing Bt9.17 million.

The provinces covered are: Khon Kaen, Chaiyaphum, Nakhon Phanom, Roi Et, Surin, Nakhon Ratchasima, Maha Sarakham, Buri Ram, Amnat Charoen, Ubon Ratchathani, Kalasin and Si Sa Ket.
