The price of long beans varies every single day. Now, the bean fetches K800 per viss.

The long bean growers are earning daily income in Kyaukse township, Mandalay region.
The growers from Kyaukse township are cultivating paddy, peanut, sesame, sunflower, black bean, onion, green gram, chilli, banana and cotton. They also grow various flowers and vegetables next to the river, creek and on farmlands.
Regarding the growth of long beans, it is a crop that does not require a great deal of manpower. But the growers need to take care of the long bean daily because it is a favourite plant of leaf beetles and pods. If it is necessary, the growers should spray the pesticide. The long bean cultivation also requires irrigation water.
“The long bean is a vegetable that is harvested every other day and sold back in the market. The price of long beans varies every single day. Now, the bean fetches K800 per viss. The long bean traders are demanding daily the long beans from the growers. That is the reason why the farmers from Kyaukse township are growing the long bean on a manageable scale,” said Daw Aye Yu San, a local long bean grower from Tada Lae village.
In the harvesting season, it can yield over 30 visses of long beans. The bamboo poles that are used in the growing of long beans can be used for up to four years once purchased. Now, the local growers are happy, making a profit by selling the long beans. — ACM/GNLM
