Dr Abdur Razzaque urges scientists, researchers to innovate sustainable species and technologies

Agriculture Minister Dr Abdur Razzaque on Sunday said that the surging onion prices will come down after imports and summer harvest arrive in the market within 15 to 20 days.

The minister was speaking to journalists after visiting two research labs at the Bangladesh Agricultural Research Institute in Gazipur.

“Onions are perishable items and their prices normally go up at the end of the season because of having no efficient way to stock them,” he added.

Razzaque urged scientists and researchers to work hard to innovate sustainable species and technologies to fight the food safety challenges of the future.

“The gap between innovation and expansion needs to be reduced as sometimes it takes almost 10 years for a new species or technology to reach farmers.” 

The minister further said: “We have no shortage of food, rather we have surplus production of potatoes, vegetables and fruits. We want to export surplus agro-products across the globe.”
