Official description

Future Park, in collaboration with the Pathum Thani provincial authorities, is hosting the Pathum Thani Red Cross Fair 2013 from May 17 to 26 at which there will be a showcase of some 100 species of rice native to these parts. The venue is Cascata, on the ground floor of that shopping complex, and the Alive Park Hall.

The origin of most of the rice produced in the Kingdom today can be traced back to the reign of King Rama V (1868-1910) when eight distinct varietals were planted for the first time. They include puang ngern, thong raya dam, khao todlong, champasorn, bangpra, namdokmai and nang tani.

Visitors to the fair will be able to check out an exhibition which deals with the evolution of such indigenous varieties as pinkaew (developed into the best-selling Thai jasmine rice 105) and jok choey (progenitor of a modern-day varietal called saohai).

Also of interest should be a display of rice seeds of guaranteed quality developed by the Pathum Thani Rice Research Institute.

On sale will be top-quality products from Pathum Thani derived from rice, including canned food, as well as Otop products and handicrafts.The Pathum Thani provincial chapter of the Thai Red Cross Society will also be organising raffle draws, fun activities and an exhibition detailing the activities it has been involved in over the past 20 years.

For more information, call 02-958-0011 ext 1036 or 1886.

Visit an exhibition on indigenous varieties of rice at the 10-day Pathum Thani Red Cross Fair, starting this Friday at Future Park.

Thailand has a long tradition of rice cultivation and most Thais eat rice on a daily basis. But how much do we really know about the types of rice grown in this country?
