The government designated the places of Tamote Soe Village-tract of Amarapura Township, where the high-quality agricultural machinery is implemented, to plant the paddy to produce 100-basket per acre.

A 100-acre model plot has been selected in Amarapura Township of Mandalay Region to produce 100 baskets per acre during this monsoon paddy season, said Daw Nyein Nyein Phyo, township agriculture department head.
The government designated the places of Tamote Soe Village-tract of Amarapura Township, where the high-quality agricultural method is implemented, to plant the paddy to produce 100-basket per acre. The operation will start during this year with the Union budget. The officials will choose 21 farmers and provide the needed agrochemicals.
“We grow monsoon paddy and summer paddy in Amarapura Township. We have Hsedawgyi Dam water. We normally produce more than 100 baskets of monsoon paddy per acre and there are only 93.75 baskets of monsoon paddy. Therefore, we will carry out to produce 100 baskets per acre following the instructions this year. Therefore, we select the 100-acre model plot to meet the target. We will also supervise the operations closely by providing the techniques and agrochemicals. We grew the paddy in August and will harvest it at the end of December. We adopt the transplanting method,” she said.
The officials selected the farmers and conducted a series of training for them. The Amarapura farmers grow Ayeyar Min paddy in the rainy season. Moreover, the officials will provide techniques to increase the Ayeyar Min paddy cultivation rate, and manage the model plot that can produce 100 baskets per acre for the remaining farmers to observe. — Min Htet Aung (Mdy Sub-printing House)/GNLM
