Aman paddy harvest nearing completion

The harvesting of Aman paddy, which was started at the beginning of the Bengali month of Agrahayan with festivities, is going to end soon in all seven upazilas of Manikganj. The harvesting of Aman was late this year because cultivation of aman paddy was delayed due to late flooding in the areas, said Abdul Malek, one of the Aman cultivators at Gangdubi village under Ghior upazila of the district.

Alimuzzaman Mia, deputy director of Department of Agriculture Extension (DAE), told this correspondent that though the successive floods affected the production of Aman in some areas, the overall production of the paddy in district was satisfactory. A total of 13,212 hectares of land were brought under Aman cultivation this year in the district against 9,786 hectares last year, Alimuzzaman Mia added.
