Farmers prepare seedbeds ahead of the Boro season in Gaibandha BSS

Now, the farmers are passing a busy time preparing the seedbed on low lands

Local farmers are preparing seedbeds to develop healthy Boro paddy seedlings in all seven upazilas of Gaibandha this season.

Department of Agricultural Extension (DAE) has set a target to prepare seedbed on 6,168 hectares of land to produce Boro paddy seedlings to farm as much as 1,25,500 hectares of land this season with a production target of 5,06,000 tons of rice, sources said.

Now, the farmers are passing a busy time preparing the seedbed on low lands.

To fulfil the target, high quality seeds of Boro paddy like the BRRI Dhan-28 BRRI Dhan-29, BRRI Dhan-50 and BRRI Dhan-58 are being distributed to local farmers at a reasonable rate through Bangladesh Agricultural Development Corporation (BADC) and other private firms approved by Seed Certification Agency of the government.

Besides, many farmers have taken preparations to make seedbeds by sowing their own seeds, not depending on BADC and local markets as they received training on seed preservation from the field level officials, said Showkat Osman, district training officer of the DAE.

The DAE officials advised the farmers to buy seeds from BADC and government approved dealers to get desired output, sources said.

Talking to the BSS, DAE Deputy Director Masudur Rahman said the field level sub assistant agriculture officers were instructed to motivate the farmers to collect healthy seeds from BADC and government approved dealers.
