On 18 August, the sesame prices moved in the range of K75,600 and K92,300 per basket depending on varieties.

The Magway Region Sesame Farmers Development Association is opening a centre to buy the sesame cultivated under Good Agricultural Practice.
The association aims to create a sesame collective selling event for the growers through a centre.
At present, the association is purchasing quality sesame at the Thityakauk centre between 8:30 am and 5 pm except for Sunday from 15 August to 30 September.
Those companies that signed an agreement to buy the sesame make transactions in front of the growers transparently through virtual competitive bidding.
If the growers can present a GAP certificate, GAP-certified sesame will be offered K500 higher than other sesame seeds. Depending on the standard quality shown on 10 August, there is a gap of K1,500 per 15-viss basket among the sesame varieties, according to the contract.
Additionally, immediate transactions will be made for GAP-certified sesame after the quality assessment process.
The growers need to focus on removing impurities such as dust, weed, and small stones. They must take care of post-harvest management to meet the prescribed criteria for the moisture content and acid content.
