Jute farmers demand quality seeds
Oct '10
The jute cultivators at a recently held meeting in the Dhaka have raised their demands for providing them with good quality seeds for cultivation and water for retting of jute fibre, setting up of more jute purchasing centres and forbidding low quality seeds.

Jute farmers, usually fail to obtain high quality seeds for cultivation and owing to weather changes, sometimes there is less or no rainfall, due to which they even face water scarcity for cultivation.

These cultivators have even requested the government to provide fertilizers and seeds through Bangladesh Agricultural Development Corporation (BADC), so that they don't get cheated at the hands of deceitful businessmen.

Responding to the jute growers demand, the government stated that, it does not intend to import substandard seeds and thus passed an assurance to provide the jute cultivators with best quality seeds.

Industry sources informed that, jute production this year remained be good, with the commodity now fetching a price of Tk 2,000 to Tk 2,500 per maund, and the government is thinking on the lines of restarting all the jute mills that have been shut down, including Adamjee Jute Mills.

The government has also initiated measures for improving the management of the jute purchasing centres, and has also guaranteed to advance funds to these centres at appropriate time.
