Tin saw crops like sugarcane, vegetable, turmeric etc. being cultivated with organic methods. After this he said that his aim is to produce turmeric and ginger in Myanmar in organic way. Tin has tried to understand the turmeric's organic crop system and its working in detail from farmers and learnt how it is beneficial. Tin also learnt about the machines used in boiling, drying and polishing along with the turmeric crop.
