Seasame NS
The newly harvested summer black sesame is priced at K150,000 per bag (containing three baskets) while Japan white sesame is sold for K147,000 per bag.  The normal quality white sesame is sold for K125,000 per bag while the normal quality black sesame is sold for K120,000 per bag and the brown sesame is sold for K105,000 per bag.

The newly harvested summer sesame from Htigyaing, Singu, Madaya, Shwebo and Monywa townships are being sold well at regular prices in the Mandalay market.
“These summer sesame seeds have been grown with irrigated water before the water festival period.  The sesame is harvested before the river water rises and it is then sent to the market. Myanmar exports 90 per cent of sesame products to the China market as well as to Japan annually. Last April and May, there was only demand for the black sesame while there was no demand for other sesames. But these days, people are buying all the newly harvested sesame. The prevailing price of sesame this year is the same as last year,” said U Soe Win Myint from Soe Win Myint brokerage in Mandalay.

The strange thing about the sesame market in 2021 is that the sesame is sold for the same price as last year. Besides, the peeling machines have been set up to produce finished products and those are expected to be exported to foreign countries.  Then, the farmers are being informed that the price could be higher in the market if the sesames are refined at the harvested time, he added.
It is also learned that the monsoon sesame grown across the country will soon enter the market in early August. — Min Htet Aung (Mandalay Sub-Printing House)/GNLM
