LALMOHAN, BHOLA, Nov 20: The recent Cyclone Bulbul damaged crops worth about Tk 2.42 crore in Lalmohan Upazila of the district. A total of 187-hectare land was affected.
Upazila Agriculture Office sources said the cyclone damaged paddy of 120 ha, vegetables of 60 ha, grass-pea of five ha, and betel leaf of two ha land in the upazila.  Farmers Abdur Rahim, Nur Mohammad and Akhter Hossen of Ramganj Union in the upazila said they cultivated paddy on more lands this year than the last year. The production was also good. But, the cyclone damaged a lot of the paddy. They, however, sought government help in this connection.  Upazila Agriculture Officer AFM Shahabuddin said they prepared a list of affected farmers and sent it to the concerned department.
He, however, hoped that the government allocation will arrive soon.
