On 12 September, U Kyaw Hla, a farmer from Kyine Phoo Gone village, Wuntho township demonstrated the cultivation of post-monsoon long-staple cotton on 2 acres of U Hla Kyaw’s farmland in cooperation with the Wuntho township Agriculture Department.
“We have targeted to grow 25 acres of cotton yarn. We are planning to grow 10 acres of only cotton plantation and 15 acres of cotton under a mixed farming system together with green gram and sesame. Yesterday, we started cultivation of two acres of a cotton plantation,” said U Tint Swe.

“There are only small acres of a cotton plantation in our township. In the current winter sesame cultivating season, we are started cultivating of the post-monsoon long-staple cotton on a trial basis instead of cold season sesame. The aim is to increase the income of cotton farmers and they become acquainted with small-scale cotton cultivation techniques. By doing so, they can earn a small income from both crops,” said the head of Wuntho township Agriculture Department.
The department has already provided training to 10 farmers to post-monsoon grow long-staple cotton in Wuntho township. The department also provided the fertilizers, pesticides and cotton seeds free of charge. — Lulay/GNLM
