There are many kinds of plants in Thailand since Thailands land and climate are very suitable for agriculture. As soon as I am asked what the most important plant in my country is, I undoubtedly point out that rice is the most necessary plant in Thailand for several important reasons which I will detail in this essay.
Firstly, rice is the main kind of food in Thailand. Even though there is much more food here such as noodle or fast food, almost all Thai people still eat rice as their daily traditional dish because we have eaten rice for a long time from our ancestral age to the present time. Moreover, rice still provides massive energy to our bodies, so we have enough energy to do our activities everyday. For foreigners, they can have breakfast only with hams and eggs. For me, if I have breakfast with other kinds of food, I feel that I dont have enough energy and I am still hungry.
Secondly, as the agricultural country, exporting rice is the main part of countrys revenue. Even though we sell several kinds of plants to other countries, rice still make much more income to us than others. In addition, Thailand is also the first ranking of rice exporters in the world. I cant imagine if we dont have rice as the vital economic product, how our country would be. I absolutely see the significance of rice because even USA also eagerly tries to develop and cultivate rice by itself in order to overcome Thailand.
Obviously, no other plants can replace rice in terms of the main kind of food and the vital economic exported product at present and in the future, even though several kinds of plants are also cultivated here and make a large profit to Thailand.
