During the farming season, we can see the delightful green land that catches the eye. On the rice field there are many people – young and old, men and women – busily working the fields.

Yann Aoudourm, 23, is a third year student at Panasastra University of Cambodia majoring in political science.  He has shared his experiences and style of clothing from when he was a farmer before coming to the city for his studies.

He stated that he and other farmers do not pay much attention as to whether their clothing is fashionable or modern. The most important factor is that their clothes are practical for hard farm work.

“The dress code of farmers is very simple. Normally, I would wear long sleeve shirts and long pants and a hat to work in the field.”

The reason to dress like that, he stated, is to protect him from the terribly hot sunlight. He had to work on the field all the time during the day. He added that farmers do not care about the brands of their clothes.

He was very practical with the clothes he wear, and did not bother much to go shopping for nice expensive clothes just to work in the rice fields. In normal cases, he would just wear slippers when visiting the rice field, because they are easy to wear and take off when working.

The young farmer needed to wake up early in the morning, and spent the whole day on the farm during farming season.
