Packing rice sacks ready for transportation.
The plains alongside the Irrawaddy river were once referred to as the rice bowl of Burma. Burma was once a leader in rice export. The second world war and more recently cyclone Nargis which devastated much of the delta rice fields depositing salt on the earth, ruined the rice production. Today, recovery has taken plains and although it will be a few more years of good economic investment, better infrastructure and laws to regain the position of a leading rice exporter. The paddy fields are emerald and although Burma may have a long climb to be among the world’s top five rice-exporting countries once again, it is already in fifth place when it comes to eating rice.
