Kyaukse cauliflower growers reap profitable returns

The report indicates that var­ious vegetables are cultivated for sale in villages of Kyaukse Township, Kyaukse District, Mandalay Region, particularly those near rivers, creeks, and easily accessible water sources. Among these villages, farmers from Pintale Village reported cultivating cauliflowers, which fetch K350 per cauliflower.


Daw Thein Mya, a cauliflow­er grower, said that the Hmyar brand cauliflower is predomi­nantly grown in Kyaukse Town­ship. Since cauliflowers are easy to cultivate and transport, farm­ers typically sow five packs of seeds per acre. The major costs associated with cauliflower cul­tivation include land prepara­tion, weed and grass clearance, fertilization, application of plant vitamins, pesticide spraying, ir­rigation, and other miscellane­ous expenses totalling around K700,000 to K800,000.


The report also states that over 100,000 plants can be grown per acre. When selling the cauli­flowers, brokers visit the planta­tion and typically purchase them for K350 each. — Thet Maung (Kyaukse)/ TMT
