In an effort to increase the production of Aman paddy, the government has made a decision to provide Tk 33.20 crore incentive to 4.90 lakh small and marginal farmers across the country, said the Agriculture Ministry.

Under the  scheme, a farmer will get five kgs of seeds of high yielding (Ufshi) variety of T-Aman paddy, 10 kgs of DAP and MOP fertilisers free of cost, said a handout of the ministry.

The incentive is being given from the regular budget and rehabilitation assistance and seeds sector of the agriculture ministry.

Already an order in this connection has been issued and the distribution of incentives will start soon in the field level.
