Farmer Grows Pink Rice Plants

A young farmer was delighted after spending three years to successfully grow pink rice plants.

Agriculture graduate Chaturong Chompusa, 31, quit his office job to help on his family’s farm in Phitsanulok, northeastern Thailand.

He bought Riceberry seeds from Kanchanaburi province in 2013 but in 2016 there was a pink mutation, which caused the normally-green rice plant stems to turn pink.
