Shortage of seed delays jute cultivation

Apr '08
Inadequate supply of seeds because of insufficient seed stock this year in Bangladesh Agricultural Development Corporation (BADC) is likely to hinder jute cultivation in Jessore.

Jute cultivation season has already begun but so far BADC has disbursed only 16,527 kilogram of seeds which accounts for a mere 16 percent of the demand made for 102 tons by farmers in Jessore.

Unavailability of seeds in the open market is forcing farmers to purchase seeds from the black market.

This was not the first instance, even earlier, BADC failed to meet the demands of the farmers for quintessential goods.

March and April being the cultivation period for jute, farmers have already made all the necessary arrangements. However, the problem of paucity of seeds still needs to be overcome.

Jute production target for this year in Jessore has been set at 1,86,700 bales to be grown on 16,987 hectares of land. It will be impossible to achieve this target unless the seed crisis is not adequately dealt with.

BADC on the other hand has expressed disappointment over inadequate storage facilities for preserving seeds.
