“More or less, rainfall is likely to be my food,” said a 53-year-old man, Yie Chek, who lives in Angkor Chey commune, Angkor Chey district and Kampot province. He and other farmers now are concerning about facing water shortage for rice cultivation. News media reported that at least four provinces, such as Kampong Speu, Takeo, Kampot and Svay Reing, are believed to have remarkably faced drought since there is only slight rain or no rain. The U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) said in new report publishing on August 6 that Cambodia’s rice production will fall this year due to the shortage of rainfall. Premier Hun Sen, on the other hand, has counter claimed Cambodian farmers have already been cultivated over 70 percent across the country. “Please [farmers] do not be hopeless about the continuity of long-term drought, because the wet season will last until December this year” said PM on August 15, 2012. Considered as the staple food of Cambodians, rice is mainly cultivated through traditional farming practices reported accounted for 80 percent of Cambodian farmers. Rice is basically produced during the wet season and the delay of drought has been threatening farmers’ seedlings and transplanted rice.
