Dr Muyeed delivered necessary directions and suggestions to the field level agriculture officials for resolving the problems and issues being faced by them to make agricultural activities successful.
“During the post-liberation period, the agriculture sector, among many other thriving sectors, has attained epoch-making success making the country self-reliant in food production,” Muyeed said.
He said the DAE has been reaching the new agriculture technologies and crop varieties evolved by different agricultural research institutions and organisations to the farmers at the field levels successfully bringing a revolution in the agriculture sector.
He suggested agriculture officers to direct sub-assistant agriculture officers to assist farmers in making model seedbeds, sowing rice seed and seedling in lines keeping a space after every 10 lines and using perching methods for pests’ managements in every block during the current Aman rice farming season.
He directed field level agriculture officials to strengthen monitoring activities and prepare late variety Aman rice seedbeds on highlands and floating seedbeds in low-lying flood-prone areas so that there was no seedling crisis for floods, if any.
