The Agricultural Mechanisation Department gave a demonstration to 50 farmers on how to harvest maize using power tillers and other machinery in Tatkon Township on 9 September.
The township’s administrator, U Thant Zaw Oo, oversaw the demonstration.
“The use of machinery such as power-tillers, combine harvesters and paddy threshers can drastically reduce the time it takes to carry out certain tasks manually. Moreover, these devices can save farmers on labour costs and avoid the difficulties posed by labour shortages,” said farmer U Naing Lin, who owns the 2.5 acre field where the demonstration took place.
