At present, black grams and pigeon peas are exported to India; green gram, sesame, peanut, heirloom bean, rice bean and butter bean are shipped to China, and corn is mostly delivered to Thailand, fetching high prices on the back of strong demand.

The Mandalay market saw big sales of the beans and pulses, primarily exported to foreign trade partners in the post-Thingyan period.
It is bustling with the sellers and buyers when the market has resumed its trade activity in the post-Thingyan period. The black gram, pigeon peas, maize, sesame, peanut, kidney bean, butter beans and heirloom beans are being sold well, said U Soe Win Myint, an owner of the Soe Win Myint warehouse in Mandalay.
“The market is crowded with the sellers and buyers. Surprisingly, this year is the edible oil from Shan State’s soybean. Soybean oil production will also help minimize the need for imported oil, like sunflower oil. Consumers should use healthy soybean oil. Shan State’s soybean prefers in the market rather than Myanmar soybean varieties,” he elaborated.
