UNB

Garlic, one of the cash crops of the country, is being cultivated commercially at Jhapa Union in Monirampur upazila, which is potential agricultural hub of Jessore district, reports UNB.

Since the past few years, garlic cultivation saw bumper production which encouraged the farmers to continue its cultivation and as a result this year farmers are cultivating about 40 hectares of land to produce the one of the most popular bulb crops.

Visiting Hanua, Chandipur, Khalia Helanchi villages the UNB correspondent found farmers passing busy time in taking care of their garlic fields where the green leaves of the plants are strewn all over.

According to the farmers, the garlic plants have already been around three months old and will be ready for harvesting within 10 to 15 days.
