Grape cultivation is mainly grown from December to March, with most of the irrigated areas in central Myanmar.

Some townships in the central part of Myanmar, such as Mandalay, Kyaukpadaung, Meiktila, Sagaing, Monywa, Pakokku, Yamethin, and Pyawbwe, are experiencing an increase in vineyards, according to grape growers.
“I rent an acre of land for K200,000 a year with a three-year contract; Last year, almost 300 visses were sold for 4,000 kyats a viss a day. We made a tent to sell grapes in front of our vineyard; Consumers like it because it is farmed,” said U Zaw Khin, a grape grower in Ywatone village in Monywa Township.
Most of the grape growers are mainly cultivating local grapes such as Shwe Ni grapes, and foreign grapes such as Italien, and Theechun grapes.
“Vine is a perennial crop that can be grown for 20 years once planted. It bears up to 25 years. The branches grow once a year. If there are thirty branches this year, it will be 60 next year. As the branches grow, the yield increases,” U Zaw Khin explained.
