Incessant rains damage lentil, wheat in Narail

Incessant showers over the past three-four days have caused widespread damage to lentil, chilli, mustard and wheat crops across 18,632 hectares of farmland in Narail district, authorities said.

"The untimely rain will delay the cultivation of Rabi crops this year in the district, which starts from mid-November and lasts till March," Dipak Kumar Roy, deputy director of Narail Agricultural Extension Department, told UNB.

The showers have damaged winter crops like radish, cabbage, cauliflower and turnip across 1,045 hectares, mustard crops across 7,730 hectares, lentil crops across 7,545 hectares and wheat crops across 2,100 hectares, according to data.

Besides, boro seed beds across 162 hectares of farmland have also sustained damage in the rain, the Agricultural Extension Department said.

"Wheat, mustard, and lentil crops have sustained the maximum damage in the rain as these are planted across 70 percent of farmland in Narail," said Dipak. "However, the extent of damage could be ascertained only when the showers stop."

Tazul Islam, agricultural representative of Narail-2 MP, however, said that the district may lag in crop production this season.
