MANIKGANJ, July, 8, 2024 (BSS) - The Aush cultivators in all the seven

To boost the Aush farming, the government distributed agro-incentives among

adding that each of the farmers got five kilograms (Kgs) of quality seeds
including 10-Kg of Di-ammonium Phosphate (DAP) and 10-kg of Muriate of Potash

The allocated incentives were distributed among the farmers in due time, the
sources added.
