Jute growers happy with fair price in Narsingdi

BSS

NARSINGDI: The newly harvested jute has started arriving in markets and growth centers of the district with farmers reaping fair prices of the crop, reports BSS.

Market sources said harvesting of the cash crop this year is nearing completion in all the six upazilas of the district.

The growers are happy with the present market price of jute.

The jute price is ranging between Taka 2000 and Taka 2200 per mounds (40 KG) depending on their varieties and quality.

The sources said purchasing agencies belonging to Bangladesh Jute Mills Corporation (BJMC) are procuring high quality jute from the local markets at a higher

rate.

And as a result, farmers having comparatively lower quality jute are facing problem in disposing of their produce.

An organized syndicate with ulterior motives is creating obstruction to marketing of low quality jute putting interest of the farmers in peril.

Talking to BSS, a good number of jute farmers expressed the hope that the government will issue necessary instructions to the concerned authorities for purchasing all kinds of jute from the markets.
