The string bean, also known as long bean growers in Kyaukse township, Mandalay Region, are happy as they are getting bumper yield and reasonable price.
The growers from Kyaukse are cultivating short term crops to earn their family income and are growing the string bean on a manageable scale. They are also thriving thanks to the favourable weather.
“This is the harvested time for string bean, and the growers are harvesting the string bean daily to sell them back. If we don’t yield the bean in time, the beans are ripe, and the wholesale traders will not like it. We yield around 27 visses of long bean daily. We are selling them to wholesale vegetable traders. The long bean is priced K800 per viss,” said Daw Aye Mi San, a long bean grower from Tada Lae village.
The long bean plant is growing well in loamy soil, and it could heavily yield after cultivating for 70 days. The long bean plant is a favourite plant of leaf beetles and pods. So, the growers need to take care of them and spraying the pesticide if it is necessary. The two packs of the long bean seed are good enough for the manageable scale grower. The long bean’s cultivation cost is not very high, and the crops can be sold for many years. The long bean is yielded for five visses on the first harvesting day.
The long bean is necessary crops not for the housewife but for the Myanmar rice noodle soup (locally called Moat Hin Khar) sellers. So, the local growers are happy for making a profit by selling them. — Thet Maut (Kyaukse)/GNLM
