Two Men And A Cultivator

Men working in rice paddy

Two men were working in the rice paddy

Shot on the outskirts of Muang Sing, Laos.

The rice paddies were spreading in the suburb. The staple food in this country is sticky rice. Preparing for coming the season of the rice planting, two men were cultivating their rice field with a cultivator. The wave of the mechanization has also come here. Yet the machines were used for only cultivating.

Unlike in Japan, the locals planted rice by hand here. By the way, rice was produced about 350megaton in this country. It was one third of the yield amount in Japan. Yet the yield amount per capita is much more than in Japan.
