Habibur Rahman, a farmer of Adiabad village under Raipura village of the district, said the cultivation of BARI mustard has gained much popularity among the farmers of the district as they are getting good production and also fair prices of the cash crop in recent years.

Narsingdi office of Department of Agricultural Extension (DAE) said farmers in the district have brought 3,860 hectares of land under cultivation during the current season with the hope of getting production of 5,800 tonnes of the crop. Deputy Director, DAE Narsingdi Shovan Kumar Dhar said farmers have been given quality seeds, necessary inputs and training on the latest technologies for achieving good yield of mustard seed.
