Farmer

Agriculture is the main industry in Myanmar, accounting for 60 percent of the GDP and employing some 65 percent of the labor force. Myanmar was once Asia’s largest exporter of rice but lost its position to India and now is ranked at #10. Myanmar’s agriculture has suffered from decades of neglect and lack of new techniques. They are still trying to implement techniques like GMO [Genetically Modified Organisms] without much success as farmers operate with traditional equipment in a labor-intensive setting.
