Economic Losses to the Agricultural Sector from Industrial Waste Water Pollution: A Study from Myanmar

The study assessed the economic losses suffered by farming communities due to the emission of the dye waste water from industrial zone. The study found that the farmlands with the higher level of waste water pollution, less fertile soil and nearer to the waste water channel experience the greater yield decrease. It signs clearly that there is an urgent need for industrial zone administration and the responsible government to educate the weaving owners and to find cost-efficient ways of removing waste water from the farmlands.
