Pigeon pea price rises up in Natogyi Tsp

DSCN2746Natogyi, 3 Feb—Untimely rain showered in Natogyi Township, Mandalay Region, while farmers harvested pigeon pea plantations, but the untimely rain could not cause impact on production of pigeon pea, a farmer told media.
“This year’s pigeon pea production would not decline although the pea plantation needed rainwater,” the farmer said.
Local farmers cultivated 79,980 acres of pigeon pea against 90,556 acres of targeted area in Natogyi Township. Although local farmers grow high yield pea and ordinary pea on the farmlands, high yield pigeon pea is on the high demand in the market. Due to reduction of over 20,000 acres of pigeon pea, the price of pea will be higher than last year, the local farmers said.—Htay Myint Maung
