Amjat Ali   ,a farmer of Taltola village under Debiganj upazila said, in last year, I cultivated groundnut on my one  bigha land at a cost of TK 6,000.I have earned Tk 14,000 at that time.

 He said, this year, I have cultivated groundnut on my five bighas of land and I got 27 mounds of ground nut after harvesting. I did not sell the ground nut as I came to know from the business men that the ground nut price will be increased within few weeks. So, I will sell the ground nut later. I will get Taka about 90,000 by selling the ground nut after meeting all expenditure, it is my hope, he added.  

Deputy Director of the DAE Md Abdul Motin told BSS that the farmers of the district are showing great interest to cultivate ground nut.
