Farmers of Panchagarh district are happy over bumper groundnut yield and fair price of their production this year.

Department of Agriculture Extension (DAE) office sources said about 11,795 hectares of land have been brought under groundnut cultivation in all five upazilas in the district with the production target of 24,000 tons of groundnut.

Deputy Director of DAE Md Mizanur Rahman said farmers of the district have cultivated groundnut on more land as they get a lucrative price of their harvested crop.

Farmers have started harvesting groundnuts from their respective land with much enthusiasm.

About 8 to 10 mounds of groundnut can be produced from one bigha (33 decimal) of land and per mound of groundnut is being sold Tk3000 to Tk3200 in the local markets.

Sunil Kumar of Sabuspara village in Debiganj upazila said that he had cultivated groundnut on four bighas of land and he got 30 mounds of groundnut. He got a profit of Tk 40,000 after meeting all expenditures.

DD Mizanur Rahman said DAE has given quality seeds and fertilizers to the farmers free of cost. The farmers of the district are showing great interest in cultivating groundnut because the high land is good for groundnut cultivation and the land of the district is comparatively higher than other districts.

The DAE has also provided training to the farmers for boosting production. Besides, the commercial banks including Rajshahi Krishi Unnayan Bank have given short term easy loans among the farmers for cultivating groundnut on their land.
