Homemaker to trendsetter


Once a homemaker, Rina Begum is now revered as an agricultural trendsetter in her village Mamudpur in Tangail. The 48-year-old has been into organic farming for over a decade. Rina is fondly known as “the model farmer” in her locality. Through hard work and dedication, she has been leading “poison-free” agriculture in the area.

She uses compost fertilisers and natural methods like sex pheromone and perching method to prevent pest attacks on crops and vegetables. Her composts are made of cow dung, leftovers of banana plants, shrubs, creepers, and herbs. Two years ago, she and 19 other women in the upazila received trainings from the local agricultural department on the usage of vermicompost (a nutrient-rich organic fertiliser and soil conditioner relatively easy for plants to absorb) in order to get better harvests.
