during a workshop in Jessore.
The Cereal Systems Initiative for South Asia (CSISA) took part in the workshop by setting up a stall showcasing postharvest management activities on rice seeds. After harvest, the women farmers do the rest of the farm work--threshing, drying, storage, and selection of good seeds.
Grace Mozena, wife of the U.S. ambassador to Bangladesh, was guest of honor for the workshop.
Women farmers who are working with CSISA-IRRI gave presentations during the workshop--a chance to share their experiences and how CSISA's training activities have made a difference in the way they farm.
The workshop was held in Jessore and was organized by WorldFish.
