Ensure fair price of farm products: President

UNB

Sylhet: President Abdul Hamid yesterday put emphasis on ensuring fair price of agricultural products to continue the ongoing development trend in country's agriculture sector, reports UNB.

He also asked the authority concerned of agricultural and veterinary universities to conduct research works keeping in mind the mass people's food demand and security by 2100.

The president was addressing the first convocation of Sylhet Agricultural University (SAU) on the campus yesterday afternoon.

"To maintain this trend of agricultural development, we must ensure fair prices of agricultural products at the peasant level. Apart from this, it is necessary to create skilled human resources as well as to develop skilled manpower in the preservation and diversification of perishable products. Agricultural universities will have to play a leading role in this regard," Abdul Hamid said.

Referring to tremendous development in country's agricultural sector, the president, also chancellor of the university, lauded the contribution of all concerned, including the incumbent government, experts, researchers, agriculturists and farmers for inventing technology-based environment-friendly agricultural products.

He asked the newly graduated students for working together to ensure food and nutrition security. "Play a leading role to rebuild a 'Sonar Bangla', the long-cherished dream of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman," he said.

President Abdul Hamid mentioned that the greater Sylhet region is a beautiful natural landscape having huge potential areas and stressed for increasing the production by optimum utilizing of sustainable agri-technologies here.
