Farmers become self-sufficient by grass cultivation

Farmers become self-sufficient by grass cultivation.

Napier or Pakchang grass is a useful and excellent food for cattle including cows, goats and buffaloes. Cows and goats play a special role in milk production. Rich in protein, this grass is able to meet the animal’s food needs. As a result, farmers have a demand for this grass. Due to the demand, many of the cattle farmers cultivate for their own needs, while many have benefited by cultivating this Napier or Pakchang grass for business. Only by cultivating this grass, many farmers including Gopal Milon and Moshiur of Gopalganj area of ​​Dinajpur Sadar Upazila have become self-sufficient today.

Napier or Pakchang grass is in great demand and can be sold by van. Once the seedlings are planted, they become seedlings in succession for 5 years. That is, when the grass grows big, after cutting, the seedlings start growing from the grass. So many farmers make a living by cultivating Pakchang grass.

Milon, a farmer from Gopalganj area of ​​Dinajpur Sadar, said, “I have leased about 11 bighas of land and cultivated Napier or Pakchang grass.” Urea, potash, dab and sulfur fertilizers have to be used in the land. The land needs a lot of water. Yield is good. It is suitable for mowing in about 50 to 60 days after planting. The whole grass grows from 5 feet to 7 feet long. Grass can be cut 5 to 6 times a year. It costs 10-12 thousand taka to produce grass per bigha at a time and if sold it earns 15-18 thousand taka. Grass is sold at 7-8 taka per atti. But the price of grass is higher in winter season. And to lease one bigha of land every year, the land owner has to pay 15 thousand to 16 thousand taka. Even then it is profitable.

Another farmer, Mashiur Rahman of Hatkhola village in Chirirbandar upazila, said his cousins ​​had been cultivating the crop for 15 years. I have leased three bighas of land in Gopalpur village of Sheikhpura UP and cultivated grass. The land owner has to pay Tk. 54,000 every year. Ati is made from 6-7 grasses and is suitable for sale. Grass seedlings are also sold at Tk. 600 per bag. Those are the grasshoppers. He added that Chirirbandar is cultivating Pakchang grass on lease of 4 bighas of land in its area, not in Sadar upazila. In Chirirbandar upazila, the cultivation of this Napier grass is more.

In this regard, Dr. Md. Abdur Rahim, Livestock Officer of Dinajpur Sadar Upazila, said that many farmers make a living by cultivating Pakchang grass. This grass contains about 14% protein. This grass of excellent quality with health compliance is able to meet the demand of animal feed.

He added that Pakchang grass is being cultivated in about 30 acres of land in Sadar upazila. The Upazila Animal Resources Office provided free saplings to the farmers for Pakchang grass cultivation and gave various directions for grass cultivation.

Stop selling at kg

Stop selling at kg

Stop selling at kg.
Like all other products, if the supply of agricultural products is low, the price will go up, a fact that consumers usually take for granted. But when it is seen with the naked eye that the middlemen buy from the farmers at low prices and increase the prices in the retail market through manipulation, then it causes public outrage. The recent sale of watermelons at per kg in retail markets across the country has angered consumers.

According to the Agriculture Marketing Act 2018, there is a provision that a maximum of Tk. 10 per kg can be earned in the case of fruits. However, in the case of watermelon, as a special instruction, it has been said that the profit of watermelon cannot be more than three to five taka per kg. And the wholesalers have to sell in the same way as they buy kg or pieces from the farmers.

As it turns out, watermelon traders are buying from farmers as pieces. But they are selling the watermelon at the price of kg by breaking the agricultural marketing law. Buyers in the retail market are being forced to buy watermelons at Tk. 50 to Tk. 60 per kg. The average price of each watermelon is about 500 Taka. But those watermelon traders are buying from farmers for 100 to 150 taka. This means that in the marketing of this manipulation, the farmer is being cheated at a lower price and extra money is being taken by cheating from the consumer.

It is only because of this syndicate that watermelon has gone out of reach of people this Ramadan. Hopefully, the government is already conducting mobile court raids in various markets to keep the watermelon market stable and several traders have already been fined for violating the law. The campaign needs to be intensified to prevent anarchy in the watermelon market and to be more vocal against these traders socially.

New opportunity to get a resident card in Spain

New opportunity to get a resident card in Spain.

New opportunities for immigrants to become regulars in Spain have been created. In fact Spanish citizenship can be obtained more easily. Anyone who has lived in Spain for two years can apply for a resident card on easy terms with a minimum six-month proof of tenure. In this case no contract will be required. Evidence of less than six months of work will be considered relaxation in the case of minimum work. March 25 Supreme Court judgment [] These instructions have been given.

With this new announcement, thousands of paper-seeking expatriates will be freed from suffering and harassment. In this, political asylum seekers, students, job visas, those who have worked in various ways including Tarketa Kumunutario, will get this opportunity. Corruption-irregularities in work contracts and harassment of contracts with more money will largely stop. In addition, the length and complexity of the application of immigrant-aspirants will be reduced.

In addition, the Spanish language learning course will be much relaxed. Those who get this opportunity under arrigo leboral will be able to show 8 or 4 hour tenure in any six months of two years of stay in Spain. No contract will be required. However, the general regularization procedure is the same as in Aarigo Social, which requires you to apply for a three-year stay in Spain with a police clearance and a work contract.

Various political organizations and human rights organizations have been calling for Spain to declare immigrants. Spain has not decided to give immigrants in bulk due to various obligations of the European Union. Although the current Socialist Party-led government has always been immigrant-friendly. Announced general regularization on easy terms in 2005, which was the latest. They also wanted the immigrants to get the opportunity to give in such a way on easy terms. In this case, the European Union did not stand as an obstacle.

Although the Arigo Leboral system has been in place since 2011 (red-557/2011), most have not been able to take advantage of this opportunity due to legal complications. Due to this simplification, it has now opened new doors for many immigrant-aspirants.

According to private sources, there are about 10,000 Bangladeshis out of about 200,000 immigrants.

Kamruzzaman Sundar, general secretary of the Bangladesh Association in Spain, said it was a landmark decision. This will benefit many suffering Bangladeshis. Russell Hawlader, president of the Spain-Bangladesh Chamber of Commerce, commented that the demands of those who have been protesting for a long time were reflected.

Al-Aqsa Mosque, one of the oldest mosques in the world.

Al-Aqsa Mosque is one of the most important structures in Islam. Which is also known as ‘Masjidul Aqsa’. Aqsa Mosque means distant mosque. It has been used as the first qibla of Islam. Although the mosque is owned by Muslims, it is geographically occupied by the illegal state of Israel.

History has it that after the construction of the Holy Kaaba, Hazrat Yaqub (AS) built the Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem. Later, under the direction of Hazrat Dawood (AS), Hazrat Solaiman (AS) rebuilt the mosque. Earlier it was called ‘Baitul Makdas’. In the Holy Qur’an, the mosque is named Al-Masjidul Aqsa. In terms of sanctity, Masjidul Aqsa is the place after the Holy Kaaba and Medina Sharif.

It is narrated in the hadith that Muhammad (peace be upon him) came to Al-Aqsa Mosque from the Holy Mosque on the night of Miraj and ascended to heaven. Aqsa Mosque is not a single mosque. Qibli Mosque, Marwani Mosque, Karim Mosque, Borak Mosque and Qubbat Al Sakhra Mosque; The Masjidul-Aqsa consists of these five mosques.

Right in the middle of the mosque is the ‘Dome of the Rock’. Sakhra means stone. It is one of the three blessed stones in the heart of the world. The mosque, built on 27 acres of land, can accommodate 5,000 people for prayers at a time.

Muslims believe that since its construction, it has been used as a place of prayer for many prophets, including Jesus (pbuh). The mosque underwent a major overhaul as control of the Aksar Mosque changed hands more than once. The Baitul Makdas Mosque was rebuilt and expanded during the last Umayyad Caliph Abdul Malik.

Religious dignity
Jerusalem is one of the holiest places in Islam. Many verses of the Qur’an refer to Jerusalem, as mentioned by early Islamic scholars. “Jerusalem” is also mentioned many times in the hadith. The Aqsa Mosque located here is the third most revered mosque in Islam; And this has been mentioned in many medieval inscriptions. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “A person gets a virtue of 50,000 when he prays at Masjidul Aqsa. (Ibn Majah, Mishkat). This is one of the three places mentioned by Muhammad (SW) for religious reasons, the other two being the Masjid al-Haram and the Masjid al-Nawawi.
