    Traditionally, rice farmers burn the dried rice stalks after a harvest, but this creates a tremendous amount of pollution and is a waste of a natural fertilizer material. Recently, the Thai government has developed a new practice to create a more sustainable solution. Shredding the leftover rice stalks to be used as natural fertilizer is the new way, but it takes time to break old habits and traditions.
