Farmers expect good yield of Aman paddy

Farmers are expecting good production of Aman paddy thanks to favorable environment alongside availability of agri-inputs provided by Department of Agricultural Extension(DAE).

Farmers are passing busy time for harvesting of Aman paddy and bumper production of the staple crop brings smile to growers, the DAE sources said.

The Department of Agricultural Extension (DAE) sources said the target of cultivation of T-Aman (transplantation) was fixed on 7,260 hectares of land in the district with a production target of 20,307 metric tons of rice during the current year. But a total of 8,266 hectares of land were cultivated in the district exceeding its fixed target during the current season, the DAE sources said.

Md. Habibur Rahman Chowdhury, deputy director of DAE, said, “Our field level officials extended all necessary supports including agri-inputs and technological methods to the growers.”
