Guava farming gets popular


A good number of farmers in northwest Bangladesh have shifted to guava farming as the fruit brings good returns.The water-stressed Barind region is perfect for growing guavas, which require a tenth of the water compared with traditional crops, such as paddy. Cultivation on the red, dry soil of on the highlands also presents farmers with many challenges.

However, in recent years, farmers found a good alternative in guavas, and attracted by good prices, they are expanding their orchards.This year, they cultivated guavas on 1,040 hectares of land, up from just 530 hectares in 2006, said Monjurul Huda, deputy director of the Department of Agriculture Extension.For irrigation, only occasional application of tube-well water is good enough.A good number of farmers in northwest Bangladesh have shifted to guava farming as the fruit brings good returns.
