Agricultural Solutions

Myanma Awba focuses on two main issues to enable better agricultural solutions that benefit Myanmar’s farmers.

Product Stewardship

Agrochemical products and seeds are essential in uplifting farming communities.

However, as a responsible company, we focus on:

  • Developing new and more organic products and solutions
  • Receiving all the necessary approval from the relevant Myanmar authorities before introducing and selling our products, to ensure full compliance with all necessary standards and norms
  • Enhancing product formulation and safe use
  • Offering training by our experts in the responsible use of our products
  • Considering the life cycle of our products to minimise their impacts – we will consider various options to responsibly manage the disposal of containers and old inventories, for example. 

Living Planet

Farmers rely on natural capital to cultivate their crops: bees and soils. Without them, it is impossible for farming communities to sustain and prosper.

As Myanmar is one of the countries most exposed to the consequences of climate change, we are committed to reducing our carbon emissions and safeguarding Myanmar’s ecosystems.

Highlights for FY 22/23

  • Our portfolio grew by 9% between March 2022 and April 2023 and includes 446 products.
  • We launched 46 new products last year, mainly fertilisers and herbicides.
  • We organised 1,573 training sessions (+64% compared to FY21/22) and trained 74,855 farmers to use our products efficiently and responsibly – a 20% contraction due to the ongoing conflict.
  • We emitted 3,283 tonnes of CO2 equivalent last year, and on a monthly basis, our CO2 emissions rose by 21%, mostly due to higher diesel consumption.
  • Our Scope 1 emissions now represent 69% of our carbon emissions, as we must use our generators to supply electricity to our factories.

Highlights for FY 21/22

  • We had a portfolio of 400+ products at the end of March 2022. We launched 43 new products in FY 21/22.

  • We received on average 9 complaints from our distributors and farmers for every 1,000 sales, and only 17% were related to product quality.
  • We emitted a total of 8,378 tonnes CO2 equivalent, of which 93% is related to Scope 1. However, on a monthly basis, our emissions decreased by 7% in FY 21/22 from FY 20/21.
