The price of dried chilli has remarkably risen in Minbu District, Magway Region on account of strong demand, Daw Sein Mya, an owner of Ywathar depot elaborated.
The prices of dried chilli this year are exorbitantly high as against the year-ago period, ranging from K7,000 to K7,600 per viss (a viss equals to 1.6 kg), said U Thar Paw, a merchant said.
Sinbyukyun, Yenangyoung, Pwintbyu, Kalaw, Aungban, Pyinmana, Thazi, Yamethin and Sagu townships mainly supply the dried chilli to the warehouses in Minbu city, with approximately 8,000-10,000 visses daily circulated in the market.
Next, Myanmar’s chilli pepper is primarily conveyed to Thailand and China. Nonetheless, the closure of the major border Muse post between Myanmar and China from 8 July 2021 brought Myanmar’s fresh chilli pepper export to China to a halt last year. Consequently, the chilli pepper produced by Kyaukse area, which was supposed to be conveyed to China, was shifted to Thailand through Myawady border post last year.
It is commonly grown in Ayeyawady, Mandalay and Magway regions and Shan State. The export varieties of fresh chilli peppers are 692, 777, 999, Demon, Sunshine and Lucky one.—IPRD (Minbu)/GNLM
