Twice the Rice

Twice the Rice is the story of Taraoni, a rice farmer from rural Bangladesh. Growing up, Taroni’s father often said to him, “Son, rice is our life. Rice is everything.” With improved farming skills he learned from Feed the Future, Taroni is now yielding twice the rice from the same piece of land. As a husband and a father of two children, Taroni’s boosted yields and the resulting higher income is improving his family’s future. He is now able to provide options for his children to go into any profession they desire.
