The quality of fragrant rice largely depends on its planting area. The company has carefully selected the best planting area in Cambodia after a long research to ensure the best quality of “Neang Malis” grown and cultivated. The best planting areas are in Central Cambodia, Kandal, Kampong Speu, Kampot, and Takeo.
These 4 region’s naturally fertile and sandy soil, surrounded with mountains enable farmers to grow premium-quality “Neang Malis” rice in a traditional way without chemical pesticides or fertilizers.
The company selected suitable areas for cultivation after research and data collected. The selected areas are in the 4 provinces of Kandal, Kampong Speu, Takeo and Kampot. The company has sent staffs to do PR in those areas as well as giving a general idea of how useful it is to them to become members of the company.
At the start of planting season in July, staffs from the company “Angkor Agriculture Promotion Division” distribute the high quality of seeds to the members. For total assurance, the farmers are not allowed to plant their own seed only our “Neang Malis” rice breeds are allowed to be grown in the member’s fields.
During the growing season, the company ‘s staffs regularly visit the rice fields to provide additional instructions and supports to the members. As a result, any problem that may arise can be solved in a timely manner.
At the end of the year, the members harvest the crops and bring it to the rice mill, where our quality-control team check the quality of rice grains and select only those that meet our high standard to ensure that only the best rice will reach our highest standard expectation.
