Experts for engaging school children in anti-rat campaign

BSS, Rajshahi

Experts suggested mobilisation of school children along with others to spearhead an anti-rat campaign saying the notorious pest alone eat up nearly 4 per cent of the country’s annually produced food grains and vegetables. “Rats appeared to be a threat to our food security system . . . we can ensure the food security spearheading a successful campaign,” Additional Deputy Director of Department Agriculture Extension (DAE) Dr Bimal Kumar said while presenting a keynote paper on the issue here yesterday.

Rajshahi Zonal office of DAE organised the meeting at its office conference hall to mark the launching of Rat Killing Drive- 2019 and Prize Distribution- 2018. Additional Commissioner of Rajshahi division Zakir Hossain addressed the meeting as chief guest while DAE Additional Director Dev Dulal Dhali was in the chair.

DAE Deputy Directors Shamsul Haque and Monzurul Huda, Upazila Agriculture Officer Sazzad Hossain and farmer Philip Hembrom also spoke on the occasion. Zakir Hossain suggested involvement of school children in the rat annihilation campaign. He urged the field-level officials and staffs concerned to motivate all the members of Integrated Crop Management (ICM) and Integrated Pest Management (IPM) as well as school children and others concerned to take part in the drive so that it could be succeeded.

Dr Bimal Kumar said a pair of rats can give birth to about 3,000 offspring yearly, much to cause havoc for the crop production and added annihilation of the harmful creature would affect little the ecological balance.
