West Bengal farmers eye good jute harvest

A pleasant monsoon in the region this year has roused the expectations of farmers of Jalpaiguri district of West Bengal, who are now eyeing a good harvest for the current year.

According to a jute farmer, this year, as the monsoon was good; they expect to attain a sizeable yield, but yet the markets are unpredictable. He also said that, farming was a major source of income for them.

Though, the monsoon season was good, but during the onset of the season, some of the crops were damaged by insects and pests, the farmers stated.

Subir Sarkar, a weather expert from West Bengal informed that, jute fields should proportionately receive both rainfall and sunlight for best cultivation of jute.

He further added that, the past two days have been really good for those cultivating jute, as it is the time when they need lots of water and ample of sunlight. Luckily for the farmers, the same is being experienced since the last two days, for instance, it rains heavily for around five to six hours and then suddenly the clouds disappear and it gets sunny.

Thus, the climate has been very receptive and therefore, it's a time for the jute farmers to rejoice. Sarkar also averred that, it has been persistently raining in four of the districts viz. Darjeeling, Jalpaiguri, Coochbehar and Uttar Dinajpur and this would be to the advantage of the farmers.

He also mentioned that, the area, over the last two days has received an average rainfall of around 200 millimetres. Farmers are looking forward to some respite and assistance from the government as well.
