Green grams are grown using irrigation water in Kyaukse township as a projected crop.

The green gram cultivation has succeeded in Kyaukse township, Mandalay region, thanks to adequate rainfall. The local farmers are also happy with the abundant yield, according to the local growers.
Green grams are grown using irrigation water in Kyaukse township as a projected crop. However, some farmers cultivate more green gram than their target because they can produce them tapping underground water.
The green grams are yielding thanks to growing within the boundary abundantly. It can be harvested every week. The green gram is a crop that the local farmers should raise because the seeds could be dried under the sun and sold them back for a good price.
“This year, the green gram cultivation meets with success, achieving a good yield on account of sufficient rain. Last year, the local farmers had a yield of only 20 baskets per acre because of fewer rainfalls. But this year, the growers expect a higher yield of 30 baskets per acre. The green grams are priced at K23,000 per basket,” said U Paw Thein, a green gram grower from Magyidaw village.
Last year, Kyaukse township grew nine acres of green gram in Station-1, 585 acres in Station-2, 376 acres in Station-3, 128 acres in Station-4, 15 acres in Station-5, 872 acres in Station-6, 544 acres in Station-8, 438 acres in Station-9, 34 acres in Station-10 and 42 acres in Station-12, according to the Township Agriculture Land Management and Statistics Department. — Thet Maung (Kyaukse)/GNLM
