    The Simplest thing farmers in Myanmar can do to increase their incomes

     

    Our Farm Advisory Services techniques are all about simplicity. We've purposefully searched and selected climate-smart farming techniques that will not cost farmers a significant amount to implement, and that are easy to understand, explain and re-create.

    Take, for example, Salt Water Seed Selection. All farmers need to do is mix water and salt. At what ratio? The water should be salty enough that an egg can float in it. Then, farmers can dump in all of their rice seed. Bad seed floats, good seed sinks. By only planting good seeds, farmers significantly boost their yields by 10-15 baskets per Myanmar acre, which in turn improves their incomes. 

    U Chit Oo, a farmer form Yae Kyaw Gyi Village in the Myanmar Delta, believes that salt water seed selection was the main thing that helped his harvest go from 90 baskets per Myanmar acre to 144 baskets the next year. He tells us, 

    "I met the FAS team too late. If I had met them two years earlier, my business would be a lot better, and I’d be living in a big brick house.”

    We're currently raising money to expand the reach of our FAS services throughout Myanmar. With your help, other farmers won't have to wait to access climate-smart farming knowledge.
