BARISHAL, May 5, 2019 (BSS) – Bumper Boro paddy production is expected in

under different varieties of Boro paddy. The varieties of paddy included
hybrid, high yielding and local ones, they said adding, as many as 19,738
hectares of land have been brought under hybrid paddy while 29,020 hectares
of land were brought under high yielding Boro and 3,824 hectares under local

production is likely this year due to favorable atmosphere alongside ensuring
adequate irrigation facilities along with availability of other agri-inputs.
