Natmauk Township is usually a low rain access area. So, the local people are growing other kitchen crops apart from edible oil crops to earn extra income for their families. The high price of kitchen crops is driving the growers to cultivate more crops.

The long bean market in Natmauk Township this year has performed significantly better than last year.
The farmers from some villages in Natmauk Township, Magway Region are growing the long bean crops, and the long beans are selling well in the domestic market recently.
“The long beans currently sold in the market are cultivated using irrigation water in April after the water festival. After cultivating for 65 days, the long beans are harvested from farmland and sent to the market. Each viss of long beans is sold for K1,500. However, the price has dropped to K1,000 per viss, and it is widely selling in the market,” said Daw San Shwe, a local grower.
“We annually grow the long bean which is one of the chief kitchen crops. Each pack of long bean seeds is priced at K4,500, and the yield is good as well. Each pack of long beans contains 500 seeds. We need to prepare well the soil and make the boundary to grow the long bean. We are also making the poles to grow the long bean. Each pack of long beans can yield about six or eight visses each time. It could be harvested every two days, said Ko Nyein, a local grower from West Lekkhokpin village.
