Nyaungshwe, 12 June — High-yield Palethwe hybrid paddy is being grown on a 5-acre farm plot owned by U Win Shwe in Tilaw village-tract in Nyaungshwe Township, Shan State.
The Palethwe paddy is being cultivated with the aim of producing seeds for local farmers at a fair price.
A pollination ceremony for Palethwe paddy plantation was held at the farm on 11 June.
“The paddy strain will produce 840 kilos of seeds per acre,” Head of Township Agriculture Department U Zaw Win Tun said. “One acre of quality paddy strain can distribute its seeds to 120 acres of farmlands. Thus, five acres of farmland in the village is purposed for 600 acres of farmlands in the region. We expect to distribute Palethwe paddy seeds to local farmers in the coming season.”
The pollination ceremony was attended by Shan State Minister for Agriculture and Livestock Breeding U Sai Has Lu, Inn Ethnic Affairs Minister U Win Myint, MPs, departmental officials and local farmers. Nay Myo Thurein
