The Chief Minister of Yangon Region highlighted the benefits of using seeders for farmers, including time and cost savings, increased per-acre yield, and higher income.
He made these remarks during a ceremony on 8 February, where 100 seeders were distributed to local farmers in Yintaikkwin Village, Taikkyi Township, to boost the agricultural sector.
During the event, the Chief Minister observed the direct seeding of rice using seeders at farmer U Soe Tun’s farmland and presented documents related to the seeders to the local farmers.
Additionally, the chairman of the Taikkyi District Administration Body provided an update on the distribution of 510 seeders, supported by the regional government, to wards and villages in the district for the summer paddy season of 2023-2024. He also reported on the completion of planting summer paddy and other crops.
The Chief Minister encouraged farmers to plant crops early, utilize available resources, fully utilize their farmlands, and cultivate more crops.
According to officials from the Township Department of Agriculture, farmers are keen on using seeders as they can save time, reduce the need for weeding and shifting cultivation, and address labour shortages and wage issues. — TWA/TKO
