Floods submerge crops on 32,992ha

BSS, Rangpur

Standing crops on 32,992 hectares of land were inundated by floodwater in all five districts in Rangpur division.

Officials of the Department of Agricultural Extension (DAE) said there are less chance of submergence of more standing crops as the flood situation is improving fast with sharp recession of floodwater.

The submerged crops included standing Aush rice on 8,998 hectares of land, Aman rice on 47 hectares, Aman rice seedbed on 5,999 hectares, jute on 14,192 hectares, vegetables on 3,116 hectares, spices on 547 hectares, Banana on 170 hectares, sugarcane on 70 hectares and betel leaf on three hectares of land. Of them, standing crops on 105 hectares of land have been submerged in Rangpur, on 12,803 hectares in Gaibandha, on 19,638 hectares in Kurigram, on 325 hectares in Nilphamari and on 121 hectares of land in Nilphamari districts.

The submerged crops on 32,992 hectares of land made up over 21.37 percent of total standing crops on 1,54,353 hectares of land in these five districts of the agriculture region.

Officials of DAE and other organizations are suggesting the affected farmers for taking necessary steps to overcome the situation after recession of floodwater from their submerged crop lands.

Additional Director of DAE for Rangpur region Muhammad Ali said farmers are being suggested to prepare late variety seedling of Aman rice and early variety vegetables for cultivation on their submerged croplands after recession of floodwater. The government would assist flood-hit farmers in recouping crop losses through re-transplantation of late variety Aman rice seedling and cultivating other substitute crops after recession of floodwater.
