The local farmers from the Myauk Mone Myaungmagyi dam compound in Pwint Phyu township, Magway region, are growing summer paddy using irrigated water from Mezali Dam, according to the local farmers from Pwintphyu township.
To be able to grow the seasonal corps conveniently in Pwintphyu township, the Township Irrigation and Water Utilization Management Department are distributing the irrigated water in time from Mezali Dam annually through Taung Mone Myaungmagyi and Myauk Mone Myaungmagyi.
The department distributes the irrigation water on a rotating basis to escape difficulties in cultivating summer paddy due to unexpected less rainfall this year. The department supplied the irrigation water on 16 February to grow summer paddy in the Myauk Mone Myaungmagyi dam area compound, while the irrigation water will be supplied on 1 April to grow summer sesame and other summer crops in the Taung Mone Myaungmagyi dam area compound, according to Pwintphyu Township Irrigation and Water Utilization Management Department.

They are growing a variety of summer paddy species such as Ayar Min, Ma Naw Thuka, Hsin Thuka, Paw San Yin, said a paddy grower from Shwebo village, Pwintphyu Township. — Ye Win Naing (IPRD)/GNLM
