Chrysanthemum farming helps increase grower family income in Kyaunggon


The chrysanthemum farming will help increase local farmers’ family income in Kyaunggon township, Ayeyawady region.
“I am a flower grower from Moepya East village, Kyaunggon Township. Currently, I have cultivated around 7,000 lucky species of chrysanthemum flower. The chrysanthemum flowers are started growing in August. The flowers are now three months old. The flowers started to blossom after four months in November,” said Ko Soe Htet Kyaw, a chrysanthemum flower grower.
It is difficult to grow flowers during this monsoon season. Thus, we have covered the waterproof plastic in plantation areas costing about K300,000. The cultivation area is 70 feet in length and 30 feet wide. It is expected to be profitable about K1 million in the harvesting season, said the flower grower.
Chrysanthemums are a member of the Compositae family and are available in a wide range of brilliant colours, shapes and sizes. — Win Kyaing (IPRD)/GNLM
