CUCUMBER growers in ChaungU Township, Monywa District have seen greater benefits from this year’s cucumber harvest than last year as they have used popular cultivation method for watermelon, Cultivator U Soe Lwin said.
Cultivators mainly export their cucumbers from the region to the Muse border trade area. As a result of higher production, cucumber prices have increased from 4 to 7 Chinese Yuan (US$1.08) as of the second
week of December.
The use of new technology in cucumber harvesting this year is the main reason why the growers have seen such a bountiful reaping. Cucumbers have been grown on over 10,000 acres of farmlands in ChaungU District this year. Growers have expanded their plantations from the region to Myinmu and Butalin townships to fulfil consumer demand.
