Thai women in the paddy fields

Thai women hold dual responsibility for farm at home. In rice farming women in Thailand have a substantial role. Traditionally, men plough, make bunds and prepare seedbeds, and women do more than half of the transplanting of rice, weeding, harvesting, threshing and post-harvest operations. Women are increasingly involved in land preparation, irrigation and preparing bunds and seedbeds
