In a bid to enhance the agricultural development in Sagaing Region, the region Agriculture Department has planned to explore special farming zones in each area for various crops.
“Quality paddy zone is being projected in Shwebo and Kanbalu districts under the irrigation system by Thaphanseik Dam. Shwebo Pawsan and Ayarmin paddy will be primarily cultivated. As the crops will be produced under the Good Agricultural Practices, GAP certification will also be accredited,” Dr Tin Mar Mar Oo, in charge of International and Public Relations Section of the Agriculture Department, elaborated.
There are about 870,000 acres of monsoon paddy and 200,000-300,000 acres of summer paddy in Sagaing Region. This being so, the region has potentials to attract investors to execute rice milling, rice products and rice trading.
Out of 23 million acres of arable land, 4.56 million acres (20 per cent) have been developed.— Lu Lay/GNLM
