Technical training aims to produce quality mangoes for healthy export


Technical training has been given to mango growers across Mandalay Region by a local organization working on development of the mango market, said its secretary U Kyaw Soe Naing.

Since mid 2016, the organization has offered a technical training course designed especially for mango farmers in anticipation of healthy exports in the coming years.

Local agriculturists made field trips to several mango plantations in upper Myanmar such as Maeza, Katha, Bhamo, Madaya, Kyauktada and Yenatha townships since October, with plans to visit Patheingyi, Singaing, Monywa and Debayin in the future.

The organisation also conducted a market survey to explore little-known native species of mango in the project areas.

Growers normally sell their high-quality mangoes to foreign buyers, while low-quality fruits go to local food and beverage producers, said U Aye Zaw, a domestic farmer, who suggested that local food production firms put more effort into manufacturing valued- added products to enter the international market.

Among the hundreds of varieties of mango in Myanmar, Seintalone, also known as diamond solitaire mango, is the best known and most popular because of its rich flavour, aroma and colour. This variety of fruit is exported mostly to China.

Mango is a seasonal, tropical fruit. It thrives in a wide range of climates, altitudes and soils. The mango tree is a hardy evergreen tree and can grow very large.
