Jhenidah mango growers expect a good crop

Mango growers in Bangladesh’ Jhenidah district expect a good crop this year as 80 per cent to 85 per cent of their trees have already bloomed. Many growers said the sprouting process would require 15 days more to complete. According to the Department of Agricultural Extension (DAE) sources, in 2019-20 financial year (FY) mango was cultivated on 2,882 hectares of land in six counties of the district. A total of 37,902 tonnes of mango were harvested last year.

Hundreds of labourers are employed here especially for three months to take care of the trees and harvest the delicious juicy fruit. Every year more lands are brought under the cultivation of mango here, but the increase is quite slow.
