The terrorist attacks in Rakhine State that began on 25 August and prompted an exodus have made the harvest of rainy season paddy crops a challenge, which is why the Agriculture Mechanisation Department has arrived to assist with 24 combine harvesters.
These harvesters began to arrive in Sittway on 17th October with 53 drivers and mechanics for the machines from the Agriculture Mechanisation Departments of Mandalay, Magway, Bago and Nay Pyi Taw.
The harvesters, drivers and mechanics continued to Maungtaw on 24 October.
The Agriculture Mechanisation Department will open seven stations to harvest the ripe paddy crops of 20 village tracts in Maungtaw Township.
The harvesting process will start at the beginning of November.
