Gandhama (Chrysanthemum) flower growers use sprinkler system to reduce expenses

The Gandhama flower (Chrysanthemum flower) growers near Kawlin Township, Sagaing Region cut the costs of money by using a sprinkler system.
The villages around the townships grow the Gandhama flowers and they order the seedlings from Pyin Oo Lwin.
The growers used to rely on the irrigation system every year, and this year, due to the drought, the sprinkler system is used.
“In our area, every Gandhama flower grower uses irrigation system every year which costed us a lot due to the fungal and insects, besides, the profit was a little due to the high cost of fertilizer, labour costs for planting every time we need to irrigate,” said a Gandhama flower grower in Zeephyupin village.
“This year, we have come to use the sprinkler system due to the drought. We have known the benefits of the sprinkler system as it can reduce costs due to less fertilizer use and germs,” he continued.
The sprinkler system also helps the Gandhama flowers to bloom bigger and be sold early and the flower growers should use the system as it also helps to reduce the costs, he added.
Farms near Kawlin Township mostly grow Summer, Kwayphyu, Mayan, Myahninphyu, Osar Mayan, Shwe O, Thitkhwa Latepyar flowers. – Myint Htun Min (Kawlin)/GNLM
