For many years, the people of Isan have extracted valuable salt from beneath their farmland. However, deforestation, ground and water contamination, and sinkholes have left parts of Isan barren. As a result, the Thai government has limited the areas where salt can be harvested to three small sites. Through in-depth investigation, possible alternative methods have been developed. If farmers can manage their water supply better, use alternative fuels, and dispose of their waste properly, salt farming can remain in Isan.
