Agricultural Mechanization Department harvests summer paddy with combine harvesters


Technicians from Agricultural Mechanization Department in Myinmu Township, Sagaing Region, gave services of harvesting summer paddy in Nyaungyin and Myitpauk villages with the use of combine harvester.
“We face shortage of farming workers to harvest paddy. If we use man power in harvest, we must spend more than K70,000 per acre. But, I need to pay K45,000 per acre to the Agricultural Mechanization Department for use of combine harvester. Using farming machinery can save time and money,” said Head of Township AMD U Kyaw Min Min Tun.
The department uses its Kukje DKC 658 made in Korea and KS 9300 Combine Harvester provided by Sagaing Region government in harvesting summer paddy in the township.–Po Kha
