The cultivation of summer crops succeeds in Kyaukse township. Regarding the summer sesame cultivation, most of the village lands can be cultivated successfully with just a few irrigation water because of soil moisture and good soil. That is the reason why the summer sesame is grown.
“Cultivation has succeeded in those villages even though summer sesames are not listed in the cultivation project,” said local farmer U Maung Maung from Mone Poung village. — Thet Maung (Kyaukse)/GNLM
