FARMERS will establish 185 acres of summer paddy plantations across Tatkon Township in Nay Pyi Taw Council
Areas in this season, planning to obtain agricultural water from Kintha Dam and Monsel Dam, growers say.
It is likely to cultivate paddy species, which does not need much water and thrive within a short period as the weather bureau announced that El Niño will arrive in the country this summer.
With regard to increasing rice production for local consumption, members of Agriculture Department recently inspected the rice plantation in Tatkon Township on Monday and shared agriculture-related advices to local farmers.—Maung Kyaw Gyi
