Jute production set to cross targeted figures

Oct '08
Jute is one of the important cash crops in Bangladesh. There are two varieties of Jute cultivated in Bangladesh. These are Deshi Pat, which is cultivated in lowland and Tosha Pat produced in upland regions. Fine fibre (Golden fibre) is produced from the Tosha variety.

According to the Department of Agricultural Extension (DAE) of Bangladesh, land under jute cultivation is 0.495 million hectares in 64 districts against the targeted 0.485 million hectares with a target to produce 5.12 million bales in 2008-2009 season. But the achievement is expected to be higher than targeted figures.

In 2007-2008, Jute cultivation area target was set at 0.485 million hectares, whereas actual area of cultivation was higher at 0.518 million hectares. In the same vein production was projected at 5.12 million bales, but fell short and ultimately achieved only 4.74 million bales.

Farmers had planted quality seeds procured from seed dealers of Bangladesh Agriculture Development Corporation (BADC) which has a reputation of manufacturing quality seeds. Other than that farmers sowed seeds produced by themselves too.

The DAE has provided extension services and necessary training to the farmers with regards to raising productivity yields, pest control and use of modern post harvest technologies.
