The people are ploughing their fields systematically even though it has not yet rained. The black sesame seeds started to be grown on 24 April. After having the nursery plants, the plants are transplanted in one acre of farmland and irrigated with water spraying through a pipe sprinkler system.
The sesame plants could yield after 100 days of cultivation, said U Kyaw Soe, a sesame grower.
