SAC Chairman Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing inspects Tatmadaw Cotton Ginning Factory of Tatmadaw Cotton Cultivation Unit (Pwintbyu) on 27 November.

High per-acre yield is based on use of quality strains, preparation for soil to have fertile soil, sufficiency of agricultural water and use of correct agricultural techniques, said Chairman of the State Administration Council Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing on his inspection tour of the Tatmadaw Cotton Cultivation Unit (Pwintbyu) yesterday morning.
Director Maj-Gen Win Lwin of the Directorate of Ordnance reported to the Senior General on brief history of the Tatmadaw Cotton Cultivation Unit (Pwintbyu), its mission and vision, work plans in respective cultivation seasons, functions of the Tatmadaw Cotton Cultivation Unit (Lunkyaw) and sufficient supply of water for cultivated lands.
In his response to the reports, the Senior General said Magway Region is a region of producing cotton. Tatmadaw cotton cultivation units need to grow and produce cotton to meet the demand of Tatmadaw factories. It can be seen that per-acre yield of cotton is still low, so efforts must be made for increasing the per-acre yield in order to meet the cotton demand of the Tatmadaw. The surplus sown acreage must be used in livestock farms and waste from animals must be made as fertilizer. High per-acre yield is based on use of quality strains, preparation for soil to have fertile soil, sufficiency of agricultural water and use of correct agricultural techniques. The Senior General stressed the need to grow windbreaks around the farms to green the environs. Efforts must be made practically for achieving success in assignments.
