SYLHET: Adv Mesbah Uddin Siraj, Organising Secretary, Bangladesh Awami League speaking at a discussion meeting in observance of the Mujibnagar Day organised by Bangladesh Awami League, Sylhet District and City Unit on Wednesday.

BSS, Gaibandha :
Farmers of all the seven upazilas in the district are expecting a bumper production of Boro paddy, a high value crop, during the current Boro season.
Office sources said the department has set a target to bring a total of 1,30,345 hectares of land under the Boro cultivation this year with the production target of 5,48,680 tonnes of clean rice. The target fixed by the Department of Agricultural Extension (DAE) has been achieved, an official said.
Favorable climatic condition, proper distribution of high quality seed of BADC and timely supply of electricity, fertilizers and other agri inputs to the growers are the main reasons behind the expectation, said an official of DAE.
To make the cultivation programme a grand success and to bring all arable land under this programme, the commercial banks including Rajshahi Krishi
Unnayan Bank disbursed soft loan to the poor and the marginal farmers during the season.
While visiting some areas of the district this correspondent found that the early variety of Boro paddy including BIRI-28 farmed on the low land has started ripening and the paddy gives the farmers a symptom of desired output.
Lal Miah, a farmer of Barobaldia village under Malibari union of Sadar upazila, said he cultivated boro paddy on 5 bighas of land this year and expected a bumper production of Boro paddy as it grew very well on the land.
He also believed that the farmers would get fair prices against their high value crop this year by taking necessary measures by the agriculture friendly government led by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
Talking to the BSS deputy director of DAE SM Ferdous said the harvest of Boro paddy would start in the district at the end of the current month.
