Mukti took an initiative to distribute Dhaincha seeds to 1,250 farmers residing in Nagendrapur and Kankandighi GP on the 7th of June 2023. This strategic timing ensured that the farmers could promptly sow the green manuring crops right after the onset of the first monsoon rain, which is the ideal period for planting such crops.
The advantages of the Dhaincha Plant are plentiful:
Dhaincha, sourced by the Mukti Department of Agriculture, serves as a vital fertilizer for organic rice cultivation. Currently, it is being cultivated extensively and will be incorporated into the soil through tillage, enriching it with nitrogen and green manure. To prevent the plants from becoming too woody, they will be mixed into the soil using either a hydro tiller or a tractor-drawn rotary tiller after approximately 45-60 days.
