Hass avocado cultivation to expand by 500 acres in PyinOoLwin, Nawnghkio

p5 third 1

PyinOoLwin in Mandalay Region and Nawnghkio in Shan State are the main areas for growing avocados in Myanmar, with plans to expand Hass avocado cultivation by more than 500 acres, according to the vice-chairperson of the Myanmar Avocado Producer and Exporter Association (MAVO).
Most avocado producers in Myanmar choose high-quality Hass avocados for cultivation in special plots, primarily for export.
“Most avocado cultivation investments are concentrated in PyinOoLwin. With companies providing services for avocado cultivation and production, there are now many avocado growers and producers. We have learned that approximately 500 acres will be added for cultivation in the upcoming avocado growing season in areas between PyinOoLwin and Nawnghkio. However, these cultivation areas will not be contiguous,” the MAVO vice-chairperson explained.
Currently, ground-cleaning processes are underway for the expanded cultivation acres. The expanded cultivations will adhere to the Global Good Practice guidance and focus on growing high-quality Hass avocado species exclusively for export, the report stated.
Avocados are primarily grown in Shan State, Chin State, Mandalay Region, and the upper part of the Sagaing Region in Myanmar, covering approximately 25,000 acres across the country. — ASH/ TMT
