During the 2022-2023 Financial Year (FY), monsoon/late-monsoon long-staple cotton will be cultivated on 3,340 acres of farmland in July and August and the seeds will be distributed to six districts in the Mandalay region, said an official from the Department of Agriculture.
According to him, a total of 3,340 acres of land will be placed under long-staple cotton, 340 acres of which will be cultivated with Union funding and 3,000 acres the regional funds. When good and quality strains of cotton are cultivated, the per-acre yield will increase, also producing seeds. It makes them more profits.
