Mezali diversion weir will distribute irrigation water to the farms in Pwintbyu Township, Magway Region starting from early March to grow the summer crops in the 2022-2023 growing season, according to the Pwintbyu Township Department of Irrigation and Water Utilization Management.
The department is yearly delivering irrigation water efficiently to farms in the township through the Mezali diversion weir, ensuring adequate water supply.
“Mezali diversion weir earlier covered the summer paddy, sesame and other crops. This year, irrigation storage is short of supply so the weir cannot provide sufficient irrigation to the summer paddy. Only summer sesame and other crops will be irrigated. The irrigation will be distributed throughout March. The farmers have been notified of an irrigation network to make their farms ready. The efficient irrigation system is urged to be adopted to minimize the water loss,” said U Ye Htut Aung, an official of the Pwintbyu Township Department of Irrigation and Water Utilization Management.
It is projected to fulfil irrigation needs in 60,428 acres of summer sesame through Mezali diversion weir and 500 acres through Aingma weir, totalling 60,928 acres of summer sesame seeds, according to the data of the Pwintbyu Township Agriculture Department. — Ye Win Naing (NyaungU)/GNLM
