About 350 acres of special cotton yarn will be grown in mid-February, in this financial year for the local farmers from Mandalay region to produce and use the high-quality cotton seeds, according to the Mandalay Region Agriculture Department.
“About 350 acres of cotton yarn will be grown to produce and use good quality cotton seeds per the water and soil conditions in the region. It will also be grown for the local cotton growers to reduce the production costs and increase the yield and promote the quality of cotton,” said Daw Si Si Phone, Assistant Director of Mandalay Region Agriculture Department.
“Our Agriculture Department is working to increase the rural farmers’ income and ensure the production of high-quality products. The cotton yarn is widely used in the region. It was grown as the special zone for yielding of the excellent quality products. The cotton yarns are planted with irrigated water, and it is convenient to supply the water in the same compound of the plantation.
The cotton yarn will be cultivated in four townships. Also, the agriculture technologies will be provided to the local growers to promote high-quality cotton yield, she added.
A total of 350 acres of cotton yarn special zone will be grown in the Mandalay region’s four townships, including 50 acres in Meiktila and 100 acres in Wundwin townships of Meiktila District and 100 acres each in Yamethin and Pyawbwe townships of Yamethin District.
