Crops worth Tk107.56 crore were damaged in the flood that recently tore through Jamalpur district, said Department of Agricultural Extension (DAE) officials.

According to the officials, the flood, which wreaked havoc on the district starting on August 27, affected 64,980 farmers while the deluge situation started improving on September 6.

During the flood, 5,650 farmers lost T-Aman seedbeds on 45 hectares of land completely and 75 hectares partially which was worth Tk54 lakh.

Besides, 57,945 farmers also lost T-Aman paddy on 6,394 hectares of land completely and 12,868 hectares partially worth Tk103.5 crore.

On the other hand, 1,385 farmers lost vegetables on 132 hectares of land fully and 18 hectares partly worth Tk3.52 crore.

DAE office sources said shortly after receding floodwater farmers began planting T-Aman in full swing.

They said farmers already planted T-Aman on 101,932 hectares of land against the cultivation target of 107,960 hectares.

Additional Deputy Director Mohammad Shakhawat Ikram said as the district is a flood-prone area, farmers also prepared seedbeds on high land which helped them complete cultivation.

He said T-Aman cultivation will be completed in a week in the district.
