Just another version of previous governments rice scheme with the only difference this one wouldn’t get investigated for corruption and charged for malfeasance.

Exactly.  Like, why kill animals for food, Tesco has all the food you want where no animals were killed.  Perfect logic.  🤪

Some of you half smart BMs should try being a primary producer for a while and then we just may see a change in attitude. 

15 baht a kg on farm - 40 baht a kg at Lotas

Seems like a good deal yes. Same the world over.

The purpose of a business is to make a profit, not to become a burden to the taxpayer. If a farmer can't figure out how to make money growing something, then don't do it and let the more efficient people do it. Simple as that. The government should offer career counseling to farmers that cannot figure out how make money, not handouts that stagnates farming into inefficiency resulting in higher food prices for everyone and government waste.

Not so long ago in UK some city schools were taken on a countryside/farm visit and many were horrified to find out that steak, chops etc came from animals that had to be killed.
