Initiative to Cultivate Exotic and New Varieties of Crops
In order to enable families and farmers to grow high nutrition content fruits and vegetables, 30 persons, including 20 women, were provided training on mushroom cultivation from the Mushroom Development and Extension Center at Savar. So far 1,700 Spawn packets have been distributed amongst them.
SOJAG has procured ‘Malta’ and exotic varieties of Lemon saplings from nurseries in Sylhet and have distributed those to farmers and other interested farmers. The agriculture experts and SOJAG Agriculture Consultant, based on favorable reports by relevant agriculture extension departments that Malta and other varieties of lemon would grow well in Dhamrai, has taken this initiative of introducing such a new fruit tree as Malta!
