Indo-Myanmar Rice Bio Park dedicated to the people of Myanmar

Indo-Myanmar Rice Bio Park dedicated to the people of Myanmar

Indian President Ram Nath Kovind dedicated the Indian funded Rice Bio Park situated in Yezin, Nay Pyi Taw (Myanmar) to the people of Myanmar.

It is a unique facility where byproducts of rice such as husk, straw and bran are converted into biomass value added products which can be produced from wasteful rice materials.

Indian president also inaugurated the Advanced Centre for Agricultural Research and Education in Myanmar implemented by Indian Agriculture Research Institute (IARI), New Delhi.

Myanmar:

Myanmar is a predominantly rural and agrarian country. Agriculture contributes 32 per cent of GDP and 18 per cent of the export earnings. Nearly two-thirds of the populations depend on agriculture for their livelihood. Women play a particularly important role in the production of rice and horticultural crops. Rice and pulses constitute the dominant food crops.

The BioPark will demonstrate methods of rice milling which can help to avoid the widespread loss now occurring in that country in the conversion of paddy into rice. The Advanced Agricultural Research and Education Centre will be set up with the help of the Indian Agricultural Research Institute, New Delhi, while the Rice BioPark will be set up by the M.S. Swaminathan Research Foundation with the help of an eminent expert, Dr. Pillaiyar.
