At present, the average rice yield in non-irrigated fields in Thailand is 2.6 tonnes per hectare (t/ha). Since the average yield in Japan is 5.3 t/ha, with advanced irrigation, sufficient fertilizer application and high-yield rice planting, it is expected that the same yields could be achieved in Thailand.
