Stress on quality agricultural inputs for farmers

Speakers at a function here on Thursday underscored the need for ensuring quality seed, fertilizers, insecticides and other agricultural inputs to the farmers to boost production of crops and get fair prices against the varieties, reports UNB.
In this context, the agricultural inputs producers, businessmen, and providers would have to be sincere and honest in supplying and selling seed, fertilizers, insecticides and other inputs to the farmers so that the growers are not cheated by them in case of producing crops, they opined.
The opinion came at a discussion meeting on the establishment of linkage between the farmers and the businessmen, the suppliers and the company men at the hall room of SKS Foundation at Bharatkhali under Shaghata upazila Thursday afternoon.
In cooperation with Oxfam, SKS Foundation, a reputed non government organization, organized the function under REE-CALL (Resilience through Economic Empowerment Climate Adaptation Leadership and Learning) project funded by UKaid.
With Goutam Kumar Chanda, general secretary of Shaghata Bazar Banik Samity of the upazila, in the chair, the function was also addressed, among others, by sub assistant agriculture officers Abdul Mowla and Lal Mahmud, farmers Hossain Ali and Farida Begum and journalist Sarker M. Shahiduzzaman.
The farmers in their speeches emphasized on strengthening the monitoring system and supervision by the officials of department of agriculture extension (DAE) in field level to check the sale of adulterated and fake seed, fertilizers and pesticides and other inputs to the farmers.
They also demanded of the government to take necessary steps to educate and aware the farmers on different technologies and methods innovated by agri-scientists through providing them with need based training during the age of globalization aimed at producing quality crops for the consumers. A good number of people including DAE officials, farmers, company representatives, businessmen leaders, social workers and journalists of print and electronic media took part in the function.
