Reaping a golden harvest in the Ayeyarwady Delta
The rice industry stakeholders in Myanmar continue to develop solutions for sustaining agricultural development, and the continuous support of IRRI and its experts will play a vital role in the development of the country’s rice sector.
Rice is life in Myanmar, where 70% of its rural population engages in rice farming for their livelihood. Building on this strength, the government is set to regain its past position as a major global rice exporter. To achieve this goal, scientists at the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) and farmers in the Ayeyarwady Delta have been working together since 2013 to improve the country’s rice production by introducing an array of IRRI-recommended best management practices.
