Farmers making good profit from vegetable cultivation

KHULNA, Feb 4, 2020 (BSS) – Many farmers of Dumuria upazila in the
district have made a good profit by cultivating vegetables on the banks of
water bodies.

Alongside cultivating fish, farmers produced vegetables on the banks of
the water bodies, said Asaduzzaman, a farmer of Fulbari village in the
upazila told BSS.

“I cultivated different varieties of vegetables as officials of upazila
office of Agricultural Extension (DAE) extended their cooperation…By
cultivating the vegetables on the banks of water bodies like pond I got good
yield,” he added.

Asaduzzaman started cultivating beans, ‘Borboti’, ladies finger, tendril,
cucumber and papaya simultaneously on the banks and isles after raising
bamboo-made over-head and on-land fences spending Taka 25,000 in the second
year.

He also cultivated bean, ladies finger, tendril, cucumber and papaya and
earned some handsome amount of money.

Like Asaduzzaman, many farmers in Dumuria upazila are benefiting
financially by cultivating vegetables on the banks of water bodies.

The DAE sources said the government provided agri-inputs including
distribution of fertilizer, quality seeds and technological supports to the
growers of the upazila for cultivating the vegetable to increase crop
production in the country.
