Harvesting of Aman paddy is progressing fast in 10 districts of Khulna division during the current season with much enthusiasm among the farmers, Department of Agriculture Extension sources said.

Farmers of the 10 southwestern districts cultivated Aman paddy on a total of 675,978 hectares of land this year with the production target of 17.48 lakh tonnes of rice, the sources said.

The 10 districts are Jessore, Narail, Jhenidah, Magura, Khustia, Chuadanga, Meherpur, Satkhira, Khulna and Bagerhat, reports BSS.

Farmers are expecting a bumper production of Aman paddy this fiscal year as they are getting at least 25-26 maunds of paddy from an acre of land thanks to proper monitoring by the authorities, DAE sources said.

Local sources said the cutting of early varieties of Aman paddy had almost been completed and the harvesting of other varieties was in full swing.

DAE officials and local farmers of the region expressed their similar hopes to get a bumper Aman production as climatic conditions are so far favourable.

The officials of DAE - particularly sub-assistant agriculture officers in field level - motivated the farmers to cultivate Aman on their land on large scales for ensuring food security and to benefit the growers economically as well.

Additional Director of Jessore regional DAE, Abdul Mannan, said necessary steps were taken to ensure the supply of adequate quantity of improved quality seeds, fertilisers, insecticides and other agricultural inputs among the growers in fair prices to boost Aman production.
