Natogyi’s farmers send mask melon to domestic market

Croplands are being extended to grow mask melon in Pyinsi and Kanna wards of Natogyi Township, Mandalay, year after year.
Up to now, a total of 113 acres of croplands have been placed under mask melon plants.
Mask melon yields high in the township this year but it does not get good price in the domestic market. Local farmers sell mask melon at K500 per fruit, said a fruit seller at Natogyi market.
Watermelon and mask melon are marketable in China. However, brokers in Kyegoung market of China do not give good prices to the farmers. That is why, local farmers sell their products to domestic market only.—Khin Zar Mon Myint (Law)
