Myanmar is often referred to as the ‘next big regional feed producer’ (especially pig and poultry feed). Corn production in the country is growing rapidly, driven by the expansion of rain-fed corn growing areas, particularly in the eastern part of the country. Yields are relatively high due to the use of hybrid seeds from Thai, Vietnamese and Chinese companies. Although half of the produced corn is exported to China, domestic demand is expected to grow as the demand for meat and poultry increase.
