Myanmar exported chickpeas to India, Pakistan, the UAE, Turkey and other foreign markets last year.  The chickpeas are cultivated in Yangon, Mandalay, Bago, Sagaing and Ayeyawady regions and Nay Pyi Taw. There are 890,000 acres of chickpeas across the country.

The price of chickpea remains in the bull market on the back of strong domestic demand, and the price rose by nearly K40,000 per three-basket bag, according to the Bayintnaung Wholesale Market.
The price was pegged at K90,000 per bag on 9 August, whereas the chickpea price spiked to over K129,000 per bag at present. The chickpea growers are fetching a good price amidst the low production this year, traders said.
“The export of chickpea came to a halt upon the closure of border posts by China. At present, the domestic bean market is positively related to the law of supply and demand, said a trader from the Bayintnaung market.
