Saline-affected lands in Bangladesh back to cultivation

saline-affected lands
Two decades of salinization affect farmers lives in Bangladesh.

After two decades of suffering from salinization, farmers from Bangladesh are back to the cultivation of saline-affected lands.

Through the help of the Water Development Board, embankments and gates between rivers and lands helped keep saline water away from lands. Also, the supply of Boro seeds and paddy made it possible to grow pumpkins, radish, and pepper in the area.

Furthermore, farmers can now save a lot from the crops that saline-affected lands, before, cultivate. Also, the amount of crops each day are increasing because farmers can’t do shrimp farming in rivers because of salinization.
