14th MARCH 2016 ~ I saw lotus farms on one side of the road on the way to Tonle Sap Lake. The tuk tuk driver stopped without being asked on the way back so that we could stand in the middle of the farm and see the lotus flowers real close.
The pond was located next to a paddy field so I guessed it was originally a paddy field which was converted to become a lotus farm.

My wild guess, the lotus farm produced both the flowers and seeds. I tried to google for more information but could not find any. I would have to google more.
