The cabbage growers suffer from falling price even though the cultivation succeeds in Latpangyitaw, Magyigone and Kyaikkwin village-tracts in Wuntho township, Sagaing region, said U Khin Hlaing Win, a local cabbage grower from Thayet Aik village.

The locals are growing the cabbage using the water from Daung My and Nam Hlaing creeks.

“I have grown the cabbage around 20,000 plants annually. The cultivation costs of 20,000 plants are more than K500,000, including nursery plants, fertilizers and soil. The retail price of cabbage ranges from K100 to K200 depending upon the size of the cabbage. Around 200 cabbages are sent daily to Kawlin by motorbike,” he added.

“Last year, the people came to buy the cabbage at the plantations. Those cabbages are sold for K300 for the small ones and K600 for the big ones. This year, the cabbage fetched only K200 per piece. Therefore, the growers are suffering from the falling prices, earning less income. Now, the growers are expecting to have higher price for their cabbage,” said Ko Tun Myint, a cabbage grower. —Myint Tun Min (Kawlin)/GNLM
