This photo gallery contains a selection of pictures of agriculture in Myanmar. In the south of the country rice is the primary crop, however less in the centre and north of the country which are much dryer. There we saw palm, sesame and peanuts, and garlic plantations.
In December 2002, when we visited Myanmar, we saw very few tractors. Probably for cost reasons, oxen were used instead. I've never seen so many ox carts in my life. See the pictures of the cattle market and ox carts below. In lake Inle the Intha (the local people) have set up floating plantations. See the Inle lake
photo gallery for more photos.
