Bamauk residents start elephant-foot yams cultivation

Residents of Bamauk Township of the Sagaing Region start cultivating elephant-foot yams for commercial purposes to generate foreign income from the yams.
Only some people grow the crops on their manageable scale, and there is no longer cultivation of commercial crops. Therefore, local people increase their yam cultivations. They buy the seedlings at K15,000 per pyi from Minkin Township of Sagaing Region. We currently grow the yams as a trial operation, and we will expand the cultivation if we get the techniques from the experts, said yam farmer U Pyae.
Only a few people plant the perennial crops in Bamauk Township, and the natural lands are damaged due to gold-related mineral exploration. Therefore, the government supervises perennial crops growing processes and breeding farms in order to produce marketable products for local and foreign countries. Therefore, there are a massive number of yam farmers, and I want the government to control the gradual rise in commodity prices, he considered. — Ngwe Oh (Katha)/GNLM
