BETEL leaves of the nuwah variety are fetching good prices in Myinmu Township this season.
A village farmer said the prices vary from K8,000 to K10,000 for a 1.5 kilo batch, depending on the quality of the leaves. He said buyers even come to his plot to buy leaves, removing the need for him to find a wholesaler in town.
A local resident said the hustle and bustle selling of betel leaves by villagers beside the busy Monywa-Mandalay highway is dangerous and worrisome.—624/Kyemon
