In order to help farmers to improve post-harvest conditions and to boost productivity and production in Myanmar, MAPCO has introduced the Agribusiness Service Centers (ASC) in major rice production areas.
The ASC works as a “one-stop farmer center”, where farmers can receive community based, turnkey solutions for all their agricultural ventures, from obtaining raw materials during the planting season, to procurement of the necessary machineries for harvesting, to access to market.
The benefits of community-based agricultural services:
- Efficient and effective technology and technical assistance
- Cost savings and reduction of postharvest wastes
- Increasing crop yield by precision technology
- Quality control
- Stabilization of farming system and timely completion of tasks
