The grapevines planting started in February 2020, and the grape yield began in January.

Italian grape variety is successfully produced with the use of groundwater in PinOo village of Ngaphe Township, Magway Region.
The villagers are relying on agriculture, horticulture and livestock businesses.
A young grapevine is worth K500. The growers also have to do land treatment and systematic irrigation. Over 3,000 grapevines are cultivated per acre, with a capital of K10 million.
The grapevines planting started in February 2020, and the grape yield began in January. The wholesale price of the grapes is K2,000 per viss (a viss equals 1.6 kg), whereas they fetch K3,000 per viss in the retail market.
I daily harvest about 60-80 visses and can earn about K200,000. As this is also a lucrative business, I like to encourage those enthusiastic growers to do on a commercial scale, said a grower U Zin Min Htike. — Ma Yu (Ngaphe)/GNLM
