Main crop products Myanmar 2018 by production volume

Rice, also known as paddy, has been the leading crop product in Myanmar's agriculture with a production value of 25.14 million tons in 2018, followed by sugar cane and dry beans. In 2018, the field of agriculture accounted for approximately nine percent of the country’s export and 23.3 percent of the GDP.

The production volume trend

Even though the production volume of paddy was approximately 2.5 times that of its nearest competitor, the numbers followed a gradual downward trend from 2013 to 2019 with production values of approximately 32 million tons recorded in 2010. However, a gradual upward trend was noticed in production volumes of sugar cane and dry beans since 2010.

Factors affecting production volume

In the 2017 financial year, a marginal drop was observed in the production volume of paddy, which further deteriorated due to environmental challenges such as drought and greenhouse emissions. Additionally, the dependence on water supply, fertilizer, and pesticides reduced production volumes further. While rice has been the major agricultural export from the country, beans and pulses currently account for higher export earnings than the rice production industry. Moreover, the domestic consumption of milled rice was expected to decrease with the global change in eating habits towards fast food.
