BAU Agroforestry Study Tour held


Dhaka-Agroforestry department of Agriculture faculty of Bangladesh Agricultural University (BAU) arranged a study tour recently for its students to Madhupur Sal forest situated at Tangail district. The main objective of study tour is to gain knowledge about forest resources, management, social forestry and to analyze the extent and endangered plant species.
The study tour was guided by honorable Dr Kazi Kamrul Islam, Associate Professor & head, Dr Md Abdul Wadud, Professor and Mohammad Kamrul Hasan Assistant Prof of agroforestry department.
During this tour, the students tried to explore history, natural beauty of the forests and living standards of local people. We observed different vegetation, plantation schemes, commercial agricultural activities and collected data from both Garo and Bengali people living inside the forest. The participants also got opportunity to study the agro-ecological climate of those areas. After taking lunch, a cultural programme was also held at Chunia guest house lawn which developed understanding and imparted knowledge to the students through interaction and sharing among them. The students were very happy and felt enriched with the realistic experience.
Prof Dr Kazi Kamrul Islam said that, Sal forest tour was an attempt to create a linkage between their theoretical knowledge with practical point of views and knowing dependency of local tribal people on forest and impact of forest decline on them. It also made students more dynamic and motivating in their studies.-BAU Correspondent
