The machines are taking over .. even in rural north Thailand ... here is a machine that plants rice ... I was interesting to see several people enter the rice fields after the planting ... to manually fill the gaps ... there may yet be opportunities for us humans. Am a little saddened to miss seeing manual planting ... but there must be less people suffering from back aches. ------------- A collection of videos covers most of the of the process of cultivating and growing rice ... they have taken several years to make ... and there may be more. I live in Chiangmai, North Thailand surrounded by rice fields ... and just looking out the bedroom window in the morning has often resulted in me grabbing the camera and rushing out to capture another edisode.
