Bangladesh: Field visit assures partners of wider technology spread

A field visit to trial and demonstration plots of rice-sunflower and rice-sesame cropping systems showcased improved agronomic practices in rice seed production.

The visit assured partners of the Cereal Systems Initiative for South Asia (CSISA) and IRRI of good progress toward wider dissemination of such practices and technologies in the next cropping season.

Joining the field visit were key persons from the Directorate of Agriculture Extension, agrotechnology experts from Khulna University, cropping systems specialists from the Jessore Hub of CSISA, and representatives of partner NGOs Thengamara Mohila Sabuj Sangha, Uttaran, Socio-Economic Development Organization for the Poor, and Ashroy Foundation.

The activity was organized by the CSISA-IRRI team of Khulna Hub.
