‘Haor farmers harvested 44pc paddy’
AgricultureMinister Abdur Razzaque on Saturday said farmers in haor areas have already harvested 44 per cent paddy from the field.
He said this in a video message from his residence and hoped that farmers will be able to complete harvest in time if heavy rainfall or early flood do not occur, reports FT.
He also thanked political and social organisations, voluntary groups, students-teachers of schools and colleges, Chhatra League for helping farmers in harvesting paddy.
“Haor farmers managed to harvest 44 per cent of the paddy thanks to various steps taken by the Ministry of Agriculture,” he said.
Boro harvesting has begun in different areas of the country, but serious labour crisis was caused due to restriction on movements over coronavirus outbreak.
