Farmers in Suphan Buri use household waste water to save their crops

With irrigation canals drying up due to lack of rain, some farmers in Don Jedi district of Thailand’s central province of Suphan Buri, one of the “rice bowl” provinces, have turned to using household waste water to irrigate their parched farmland.

 

Desperate to save his 3.2 hectares of paddy in Village 5, Tambon Don Jedi, rice farmer Narong Wongsuwan told Thai PBS that he decided to pump water from a ravine, which has been turned into an open drain for household waste water, onto his farmland for the past four days.

 

Although there is still a small amount of water in the irrigation canals, he said he prefers to save it for consumption.

I can recall a story about the North Korean defector who had two 27cm intestinal worms removed, apparently contracted because water containing human waste was used on their crops, enjoy your veggies.:bah:
