Golden Paddy provides farmers with daily updates about local crop prices. Farmers are using this information to decide where, to whom and at what moment they need to sell their crops in order to get the best value.

With the Golden Paddy application they have accurate insights about market prices from all over Myanmar, literally in their hands.

 

Before, we would sell our products to the brokers for very low prices, because we had no idea they sold them for higher prices in the city. But in the app I can see what the prices are in the big towns, so I don’t get cheated—especially for ginger and avocados.
