Agronomy Research Section

Agronomic research activities aim to develop improved crop production technologies, with the efficient utilization and conservation of natural resources and to develop more efficient sustainable agricultural systems in favorable and unfavorable ecosystems.

Research Activities

  • Cropping Systems

Identify rice-based cropping systems and upland crop-based cropping systems.

  • Rice Agro-technique

Generate crop management technologies of planting methods (Rice Transplanter, System of Rice Intensification (SRI) and Modern System of Rice Intensification (MSRI)), optimum time of sowing, optimum plant population and seed rate, right seeding age etc., for rice varieties to be released and released in wet and dry seasons.

  • Rice Weed Management

Weed management options such as variety-weed competition, nitrogen-weed competition, time of weeding, methods of weed control and evaluation of herbicides etc.

  • Seed Production

Production of foundation seed for seed farms of Myanma Agriculture Service and satellite research farms of Department of Agricultural Research (DAR).

Achievements

  • Cropping Systems (Rice-based)

Rice-Food Legumes-Rice cropping pattern that improve soil fertility.

  • Rice Agro-technique

-Dry directed seeded rice

– Direct wet and dry seeding

– Optimum plant population

– Optimum seed rate

– The best time of sowing for summer and monsoon rice

– Delay sowing time of local rice varietiesthat was grown as a second rice crop

– Optimum time of harvest

  • Rice Weed Management

– Selection of herbicides available at market

– Nitrogen-weed competition on wet seeded rice

– Time of weeding

– Weed management on dry directed seeded rice
