About 4,000 acres of Shwebo Paw San paddy were cultivated consecutively under the Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) system and have been successfully harvested in Dabayin township, Shwebo district, according to the Sagaing Region Agriculture Department.
GAP special zone was established successfully in Thayet Kan village-tract, Dabayin township, Shwebo district, Sagaing Region.
“The local farmers have already known the quality and market condition of the crops grown normally or with the GAP system. So, we are supporting them to cultivate their crops under the GAP system. The department staff are also providing the local farmers’ awareness on their farmlands and providing them the agricultural method, necessary high-yield seeds and cultivation and preparation of farmlands,” said U Win Hlaing Oo, Director of Sagaing Region Agriculture Department.
About 4,000 acres of Shwebo Paw San paddy farmland owned by 894 local farmers were cultivated consecutively in the GAP special zone in the financial year 2019-2020 monsoon paddy season. The local farmers are also adding farm record to apply for a group certificate.
