Field Site

Ideal because of its proximity to many decision makers, the field site is located in Takkone Township. It is only 50 km from Naypyitaw, the capital city of Myanmar.

Government representatives, agricultural decision makers as well as approximately 5,000 farmers are located in this area. As one of the irrigation scheme sites of the Agricultural Development Support Project funded by the World Bank, the field demonstrations will have a large multiplier effect.

Martin Gummert

“Driven by labor shortage and intensification of rice production the needs to mechanize the rice based cropping systems and to upgrade rice value chains in Myanmar is huge. The AGRITECHNICA ASIA live is going to provide the opportunity for producers, processors, machinery contract service providers and value chain actors to learn about state of the art machinery and postharvest equipment that will make agricultural production more efficient, reduce cost, provide value adding opportunities and lead to a more sustainable production systems while at the same time providing incentives for young people to stay engaged in agriculture as a career choice. I am looking forward to work with our international and national partners to organizing and conducting this exciting event.”
