"Thirachai" hijacked the government to stop using hazardous chemicals in the agricultural sector. The largest importer of herbicides in Thailand is in fourth place in the world
On August 26, 256, Mr. Teerachai Phuvanatnaranabal Former Minister of Finance Posted by Thirachai Phuvanatnaranubala It is recommended to increase the level of agricultural production in Thailand by mentioning that.
"It's time to change the way Thai agriculture changes"
Human nature When a higher income. Would like more: great food, fresh and safe, more expensive.
The population in ASEAN, China and India will grow in the coming decades. How do Thai farmers adapt to this?
1. The pressure to reduce the use of hazardous chemicals.
Why do people go to Japan to eat fruit and vegetables? Many people eat strawberries without rinsing?
Because Japan is credible for food safety. Even with the use of chemistry. I have to take the time to switch off.
Therefore, Thai authorities should plan to abolish hazardous chemicals.
Figure 1 shows that Thailand imported the fourth largest herbicide in the world, pesticides 5th, with an agricultural area of only 48.
Figure 2 shows that the use of hazardous chemicals. It is likely that the number of deaths from cancer will increase significantly. Now is the number one cause.
This progress is also less. Because the government often gives time. As can be seen from the vote in Figure 3 and Figure 4-6 below.
"The BioThai Foundation and the Pesticide Warning Network (Thai-PAN) stated that the report The special subcommittee on the conclusions of Paracetamol, chlorophyll and phosphate hazardous substances.
▪ No risk of consumption.
▪ No better substance.
This is the source of the solution of the ban on toxic substances that pose a high risk to the three substances as the three.
The 51 countries that have been excluded from skydiving plan to ban two other countries, China and Brazil, by 2020.
2. Help the community organize a reliable organic label.
The state must work with the community to establish standards for each label. And how to monitor each community. The process is followed by external experts. To help confirm the credibility of the community label.
3. The state must finance community subsidies that follow the standards of organic farming.
As usual, farmers have to sell more expensive organic products at higher costs.
But in the first adjustment phase. Farmers may not be able to pass on the costs to the consumer. The number of consumers who buy more expensive may not be enough. The state should consider giving the community money to subsidize part of the higher costs.
