Than's Group's story

Than is 60 years old and is a farmer in Dala Township. There are 3 family members in his family and farming is the main business for his family. He was a farmer before he got married and has now been farming for over 30 years. He explains that he has very good experience for paddy planting. He owns 13 acres of land and grows only monsoon paddy (one crop a year). His farm can produce over 600 baskets of rice and he normally sells it as soon as he finishes harvest. Before he sells, he observes different prices and sells it to the buyer offering the best price. He keeps some baskets of paddy for planting again in the next season. He explains that farming is good business when you have good seeds and maintain the land properly.
