Keep using them and further risk the environment ?

Not to mention the ill health caused by misuse and over use.

Why are these jerks only worried about money that they might lose? Why are they so unconcerned with the lives that will be ended by continuing the use of this known poison? How can people be so totally retarded? 🤬

Because they are Thai with no regard to anyone but themselves.

This attitude is not unique to Thailand. There was the same noise in the USSA when they banned it there.

more labour will be required and the cost of labour is very high. 

Compared to what? Is that why there is 80% household debt?

As sugarcane farmers burn their crops before harvesting, damaging the environment and health of millions of people, banning these chemicals will save society trillions of bahts in health care.

Sugar industry in Thailand including the land used to grow cane is mostly Chinese owned and operated. China will do what ever it can to keep using the cheapest options no matter what the cost to health and environment.

So, that´s interesting! With the right promotion and raising the price 50 satang per kilo. They will surely be expected to regain their losses in only a few years, as well as beeing recognized as have evironmental and health friendy production in the eyes of the rest of the world.

In the end, I actually think they win and save lifes at the same time. Not a bad idea! Let´s say "Sugar & Cassava - Food for thoughts"

Why don't they try sugar beets in the north parts of Thailand, with some adjustments ( plant and shades) it would be possible and we also the burning problem would be less
