MYANMAR Paddy Farming: PHOTO ARCHIVE
The following is taken from Paddy to Plate - The Rice Ecosystem in Myanmar: Challenges & Opportunities.
The 185 photographs document the paddy to rice value chain in Myanmar with a broad stroke and a distinct focus on the producer: the smallholder paddy farmer. In the archive you will find farmers, machinery, foliage, and lifestyle imagery. These photographs are output from a research study conducted in rural Myanmar locations in June - August, 2015. A sister output of this research is a report of findings, documenting the rice Ecosystem in Myanmar. The full report can be accessed here: Paddy to Plate - The Rice Ecosystem in Myanmar: Challenges & Opportunities.
