With the help of the Department of Natural Resources, RSC
helped our cane farmers to reliable sources of water through
digging and establishing new artesian wells. Co-operations
with the Department of Irrigation helped us clean and improve
the natural canals for greater efficiency as well as promoting
private pools for agricultural uses.
During the year 2000, together with
our cane farmers project at Auphur Suan Peung and the Department
of Irrigation, Rajburi Sugar started a new irrigation named
"Norng Punchan Project"
to build a new local irrigation system and developed an efficient
water management system for canes-growing usage.
This co-operative effort, covering over 630 acres and 147
cane farmers, was approved by the Department of Irrigation
and received a funding totaled 96 million Baht from the Asian
Development Bank (ADB). This project,
scheduled to be complete in 2004, is a pilot project in using
pipes network for irrigation for sugar canes in Thailand.
