Naga Self-Administered Zone invests K5 bln in agriculture, livestock sectors

The Naga Self-Administered Zone has been implementing development activities of agriculture and livestock sectors with the spending of K5 billion, said U Aung Kyi Win, deputy head of the Sagaing Region’s Agriculture Department.
“The leaders of the State are committed to bolstering the country’s economy and regional development. With the allocated spending of K5 million, the Naga Self-Administered Zone has been stepping up for the development of agriculture and livestock sectors,” said U Aung Kyi Win. We are monitoring the farmers and growers to guide them in the right direction. They will receive the government’s contribution for sure.
“There is no such thing as Form 7 (land use certificate) in Lahe Township. Transitioning shifting cultivation to a resilient farming system is a must,” he emphasized.
To effectuate the development in the agriculture sector, the zone will foster an intercropping and mixed cropping system. There is a plan to cultivate sunflower and soybean crops after the monsoon paddy season. A resident from the zone pointed out that we need to choose land that contains soil moisture for the intercropping.
The locals eye lucrative crops such as konjac and avocado.
“There is potential to ramp up cultivation of tea leaf and coffee bean in the zone. Beyond self-sufficiency, coffee bean, tea leaf, konjac, avocado and tangerine are the prioritized crops to maximize the earnings,” U Aung Kyi Win added. — Myo Win Tun/EM
