Paddy cultivation in Narsingdi
16 Septembar 2015, Nirapad News: Cultivation of transplanted Aman seedling is nearing completion in the six upazilas of Narsingdi district this season.
Deputy Director, Department of Agriculture Extension (DAE), Narsingdi, Latafat Hossain told that according to field level reporting collected by the DAE, a total of 37,840 hectares land have been brought under Aman cultivation against the target of 38,950 hectares in six upazilas of the district.
He said the target fixed by the department might be exceeded as a good number of farmers living on river basins Sadar and Raipura upazilas would cultivate late variety Aman paddy on their char land just after receding the water from the char.
Meanwhile, the transplanted seedlings of Aman paddy already grown well and the paddy fields have turned greenish. The growers are now busy to nurturing the paddy fields with the hopes of getting desired production of the crops this season.
The Deputy Director said Bangladesh Agriculture Development Corporation distributed high quality Aman seeds to the farmers of the district at fair price.
He said availability of fertilizers, insecticides and other necessaryagri-inputs has been ensured at the farmers of the district during the current Aman season.
