Northern provinces told to brace for possible drought this summer

Local authorities in the North of Thailand have been instructed to ensure that there is enough water for household consumption this summer.

Agriculture and Cooperatives Minister, Kritsada Boonrach, traveled to Phitsanulok to open a seminar on the mobilization of the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives’ policy in 17 northern provinces.

Local public agriculture agencies will be tasked with educating local farmers about marketing and large-scale farming practices. This is to increase their incomes and lower production costs.

Kritsada also told related agencies to take steps which are necessary to ensure sufficient water supplies for household consumption this summer.

Currently, the amount of water in all reservoirs combined is 40% greater than that of the same period last year. Despite the higher volume of water, farmers have been urged to grow drought-tolerant crops.
