Rice Production

Rice Production

The School is located in Desdunes, in the Artibonite region, an area that is considered very favorable to rice growing.  My research indicated that this region is capable of producing enough rice for Haiti’s population. However, the area is subject to severe rainfall causing floods and persistent droughts so the rice production is not consistent to feed its residents.  I went to Desdunes in 2015 and I had the opportunity to visit several rice fields and was able to see the planting, harvesting (cutting, stacking, handling, threshing, cleaning), drying and hauling to the rice mills for milling and processing.
