Farmers start cultivation of groundnut, green gram on alluvial lands

Local farmers cultivate pre-monsoon groundnut and green gram irrigated by tube-wells in Thayetbin village, Kani Township, Sagaing Region.
“We grow groundnut and beans including sunflower and maize on alluvial lands at the bank of Chindwin River in the early April,” a local farmer said.
“We use one bag of fertilizer per acre for cultivation of green gram on 121 acres of croplands and 70 acres of groundnut. We have pumped water from Chindwin River to the croplands,” said the local farmer.–Than Htay Aung (Kani)
