Should rice growers look to ensure their product rice quality?
Their market (for rice) is eroding (by recent market perception). Thailand has enjoyed being the best producer of best rice in the world. But now that is no longer the position. Thai rice growers now have more to do to regain market trust and market share.
Their livelihood and quality of life and that of their children who follow them are now under threats. (Other farmers too will need to consider their positions.) They need to ensure quality of their products in order to ensure their quality of life in the long term.
