Irrigation water from Manchaung dam and Yinchay dam was distributed in February to grow 1,150 acres of summer sesame in time in Ngape township in Minbu district, Magway region.

There is no sufficient irrigation water in Manchaung dam and Yinchay dam. So, these two dams could not supply the water enough for summer paddy in 2021. But, these dams distributed the irrigation water to grow only summer sesame.

The Yinchay dam supplied the irrigation water from 1 February to 15 February to grow 150 acres of summer sesame in two farmlands, while Manchaung dam will distribute the water from 15 February to 28 February to the 15 farmlands from five village-tracts along the dam area to grow 1,000 acres of summer sesame, said U Aung Ko Oo, the head of Ngaphe township Irrigation and Water Utilization Management Department under the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Irrigation.

Last year, about 1,550 acres of summer sesame were cultivated in Ngaphe township using dam water, pond water and underground water. This year, the department targeted to grow about 1,150 acres of summer sesame using irrigation water from Manchaung and Yinchay dams. — Ma Yu (Ngaphe)/GNLM
