Phi Mai, Thailand. 22nd November 2013 -- An employee at a state-run factory walks towards a mountain of rice being delivered daily by Thai farmers as they take advantage of a government scheme guaranteeing prices. -- Farmers are queuing from dawn to dusk to sell their freshly harvested rice crop to government factories at guaranteed prices of 60 US cents per kilo. The scheme has led to concerns from the International Monetary Fund over Thailand's rice reserves.
