As we all see foremost the fertilizer prices and food prices are climbing with no end in sight.

 

Who is doing agriculture here in Thailand and has an opinion about how bad the situation will become.

 

Please no doom and gloom.

It is gloom and doom for most countries around the world 

Prices rising for food oil electricity and so on 🤯

I recall way back in about 1965 2 men talking about the same thing. Always people forecasting doom. Life seems better now than in 1965 but I don't recall hearing anyone praising that fact.

How about the fertilizer prices?

There are many stories in the media about fertilizer being too expensive now so fsrmers are not able to make profit with farming.

Then they should stop using fertilizer.  For many years now my father in law has been organic. Chicken coops over the rice fields, ducks in the rice fields and fish too. Natural fertilizer being made every day.

Rising costs are a fact of life and Thailand is starting to learn that.

 

Between the planting costs and the rice mafia, we don't really make anything farming.

 

Lots of rice for the extended family, however, I foot the planting cost for them every year

The media says stopping fertilizers comes with issues. Most land is not suitable for organic or no fertilizers due to poor soil quality.

 

A prominent example might be Sri Lanka which is at the bring of civil unrest due to food shortages.

 

I suppose that farming in Thailand is much more autark than in other countries. 

But then prices of organic fertilizers must go up in price if chemical fertilizers do.

Correct me when I am wrong but fact is that Thailand is importing all it's chemical fertilizers.

 

Is there nobody seeing any upcoming issues here?

My father in law does not by organic fertilizer. As I pointed out in my post, he keeps chickens, ducks and fish. Lots of natural fertilizer being created.
