The opening ceremony of the San Wati Livestock Organic Fertilizer Plant was officially commissioned into service at 10 am on 11 February in Letha village of Pobbathiri Township, Nay Pyi Taw, in coordination with the San Wati livestock and organic fertilizer manufacturing cooperative society and Shwe Kaba microfinance cooperative society to mark the 75th Anniversay Union Day.

The Union Minister delivered a remark that organic fertilizer is eco-friendly and less costly. The cooperative sector is fulfilling the requirement to manufacture organic fertilizer which has fewer health risks to the environment and humans. The cooperative is also engaged in the manufacturing and distribution of dairy products besides dairy cattle breeding. The animal manure will be turned into organic fertilizer. Shwe Kabar microfinance put the capital in that project. San Wati cooperative society is implementing fertilizer manufacturing. The organic fertilizer manufactured by San Wati Plant meets the criteria set by the fertilizer committee. It has already sought a fertilizer certificate from the Agriculture Department.
Organic fertilizer adds nutrients into the soil solution, soil fertility and maintaining nutrient balance. It also contributes to sustainable agriculture, he added.
An acre of paddy needs four bags of this organic fertilizer. A 50-kilogramme bag is priced at K15,000.
Organic fertilizer includes composted manure of animals, such as cattle, chicken and bats, sewage sludge and biochar. The plant ensures an adequate inventory of raw materials by linking to the suppliers in other regions and states. It will carry out measures for sustainable production and quality control and build distribution networks through cooperatives, he elaborated.
Afterwards, the director-general of the Department of Cooperative and the chair of the San Wati cooperative explained each sector.
