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.

Hotel

The recommend hotel for participants is Oattara Thiri Hotel.

There will be a shuttle-bus from the hotel to the field site. Seminars will also be held in Oattara Thiri Hotel.

Address: Oattara Thiri Hotel, Plot No.18,Pobba Thiri Circular Road,Oattara Thiri Hotel Zone, Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar.

Product Highlights

“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.”

“In recent years Myanmar’s agriculture is growing significantly. Mechanization will play a major role to support this growth and make production sustainable. CLAAS machinery, introduced by our exclusive partner Octagon International Services will contribute to this mechanization and increase productivity of Myanmar’s agriculture. The CLAAS ARION 430 with 115-130 horsepower, as well as the CROPTIGER 40 multi-crop combine harvesters have been introduced to the market since 2015. The proven performance of the CLAAS product range in the Myanmar market demonstrate the capability of modern agricultural machines. CLAAS is proud to contribute to the sustainable development of Myanmar’s agriculture”.
