Panyanivej Eco-Rice
Fish Farm

The mission of Panyanivej is to educate young people and the general public about integrated rice-based farming systems and use of low input sustainable agriculture techniques.

Panyanivej actively promotes raising of fish together with rice to control insect pests. An additional benefit is better nutrition of farmers from getting extra-protein from the fish. The use of organic fertilizers, such as worm casts, in rice fields is an indirect way of fertilizing the rice. This promotes synergistic practices similar to those practiced in traditional rice cultivation and have been proven to be sustainable and effective.
