Thailand   Agriculture - Farming

   With some 20.4 million hectares (50.4 million acres) of farm land, of which about 10 million hectares (24.7 million acres) are under rice cultivation, Thailand continues to rely heavily on agriculture, although the country has suffered from declining export prices in recent years. Rice is the major crop grown; Thailand is the world's biggest rice exporter.
Rubber, also a major export, is grown on the peninsula and, to a lesser extent, on the southeast coast. Total production in 1999 was 2,198,000 tons, the highest in the world and accounting for 34% of all production that year.
Sugarcane production reached 52.8 million tons, while output of cassava (tapioca), traditionally important in Thailand, totaled 16.5 million tons.
