Bangladesh Agriculture Development Corporation (BADC) observed its 58th founding anniversary on Sunday.
Marking the day, the BADC authority chalked out various programmes.
Agriculture Minister Dr Abdur Razzak inaugurated the programme as chief guest at BADC auditorium at Dilkhusha in Dhaka.
The minister put emphasis on increasing production and supply of 'foundation seeds' from Bangladesh Agriculture Development Corporation (BADC).
"The BADC has already achieved success in increasing production and supply of foundation seeds at 20 percent from only six percent. The authority will have to work hard to increase the seeds more as the farmers can get quality seeds easily," he said.
BADC chairman Md Sayedul Islam chaired the programme while member of Parliamentary Standing Committee on Agriculture Ministry Abdul Mannan, Agriculture Secretary Md. Nasiruzzaman, former Agriculture Secretary SM Nazmul Islam, BADC General Manager Azharul Islam and Jakir Hossain Chowdhury also spoke the occasion.
