Stress on food security, ecological balance

BSS

RAJSHAHI: Massive fruit tree plantation can be the effective means of meeting nutritional demands with food security, ecological balance, biodiversity and mitigating the adverse impact of climate change, reports BSS. Significance of fruit and fruit trees is very vital in terms of the present social and national aspects. So, utmost emphasis should be given on transforming the tree plantation campaign into a social movement.

The observation came at the inaugural session of a three-day Fruit Tree Fair-2018 at Green Plaza of Rajshahi City Corporation yesterday. District Administration and Department of Agriculture Extension (DAE) organised the fair. Commissioner-in-Charge of Rajshahi division Aminul Islam and Additional Director of DAE SM Mustafizur Rahman addressed the session as chief and special guests respectively with Deputy Commissioner SM Abdul Kader in the chair.

Additional Deputy Commissioner Alamgir Hossain, Deputy Director of DAE Deb Dulal Dhali and District unit President of Bangladesh Krishak League Rabiul Alam also spoke.

The speakers stressed the need on extensive tree plantation to improve environment and biodiversity to make the region habitable for all.

“Expansion of the country’s forest area up to 25 per cent of the total landscape through extensive tree plantations will protect the country from possible alarming consequences of the ongoing climate changes,” said chief guest Aminul Islam.

Explaining various beneficial aspects of trees and homestead gardening in human life, he urged all to plant at least three tree saplings around their homesteads to help maintain environmental and ecological balance.

He termed the tree plantation as a big investment and said many people have been changing their lots through establishing nurseries and making orchards garden at present.

Aminul urged all to plant fruit saplings around their respective homesteads or on any open space to help maintain environmental and ecological balance and save the region from the wrath of any future natural catastrophe.

Various government and non-government organizations and individuals including nursery owners and local entrepreneurs have set up 46 stalls in the fair.
