This year, the mango trees bear fruits well and the production rate will be high, said U Kyaw Soe Naing, secretary of Mandalay’s Myanmar Mango Market and Technology Development Association.
Currently, climate change occurs and mango trees begin to fruit in Ayeyawady Region as well as in some areas of plains. The mango farmers started carrying out proper mango cultivation processes and they estimate to receive high production. The mangoes are exported to China primarily.
“The mango trees start blooming especially in February. We estimated that this year would have a high production rate. Due to climate change, people spray fungicide in mango fields after the rain. The fungicide and insecticide should spray in those regions. The mango farmers do such measures to have stronger blooming. The officials announce it could rain and so the mango farmers should notice it. The mango trees will bloom soon in the upper regions. The mango production is high every other year. The production was low last year and we estimate it would be high this year,” he explained.
The country has more than 200 types of mangoes with marketable mangoes such as Sein Ta Lone, Shwe Hintha, Yin Kwal and Ma Chit Su. Later, the people also grow Padamyar Nga Mauk and Mal Thi mangoes. There are over 250,000 acres of mango fields and Ayeyawady Region boasts the highest cultivation. The people grow Yin Kwal mango in Ayeyawady Region.
The export quality fruits are grown in Mandalay and Sagaing regions and Shan State, while other varieties in some regions and states. — Min Htet Aung (Mandalay Sub-Printing House)
