Local authorities arrange re-cultivation of crops on the flood-ravaged farmlands in Kawlin Township, Sagaing Region. A total of 12 creeks and river overflew the monsoon paddy farmlands in the region due to heavy rains. Township Department of Agriculture helped local farmers regrow paddy on 745 acres of farmlands. Officials of the department demonstrated use of direct seeding machines in the township and distributed the machines to local farmers. Workers from the department ploughed the farmlands in Seinpangon, Yataung and Kyokhon villages with the use of tractors free of charge.
