Farmers expect bumper vegetable production in Laxmipur shoal areas

Farmers in shoal areas of Laxmipur district are expecting to have a bountiful production of winter vegetables of over 10,000 mts worth Tk 30 crore this season. They said the vegetable yield will exceed their expectation this year due to favourable weather condition and less pest attacks which will help them recoup their last year's losses. Visiting Charramani Mohon, Bhobaniganj, Piarapur, Tumchar, Miarberi and Maju Chowdhurirhat areas of Sadar upazila, the UNB correspondent found vast tracts of land full of eggplant, cabbage, cauliflower, carrot, snake gourd, bean, radish and different vegetables. Besides local varieties, farmers have produced various hybrid varieties of vegetables in char areas of the district.

Abul Khair, a farmer of Piarapur area, said growers in the area are showing more interest in vegetable production as it proved to be more profitable than other crops.

Kishore Kumar Majumder, additional deputy director, Laxmipur Department of Agriculture Extension (DAE), said vegetables like cauliflower, cabbage, carrot, snake gourd, bean, radish, eggplant and other vegetables have been produced well in the district thanks to the fair weather.

Required advice from DAE officials helped the farmers get the good yield, he said. The vegetables produced in char areas of the district are expected to help the farmers earn Tk 30 crore this season, said Majumder adding that vegetables are being sent to Dhaka, Chattogram and other parts of the country after meeting the local demand. Over 10 mts of vegetables have been produced on each hectare of land in the district while vegetables are being sold at Tk 30 to Tk 40 per kg on average, he added.
