A VIEW OF THE RUBBER PLANTATION AREA

       

Cashewnut Plantation:

There is great demand of  fruits like cashewnut all over Assam, the soil and climatic condition of Bongaigaon District holds great potentiality for plantation of cashewnut, but due to lack of proper finance and technical knowledge, farmers are not interested in plantation of cashewnut in large scale.But DRDA, Bongaigaon for the first time has taken up a demonstration plot of land measuring 5 ha in Borobazr Development block in Bijni sub-division for cashewnut plantation under Jowahar Gram Samriddhi Yojna 2001-2002  to motivate the farmers towards growing cashewnut as a cash crop.

Under this scheme 5 ha of land was selected taking 44 nos of farmers from 5 Gaon Panchayat area. A very fresh and good quality of seedlings have been supplied by the Assam Seed Corporation, Bijni Branch and was duly distributed to the farmers. Till date total 1038 nos of quality cashewnut seedlings have been distributed and planted.

The plantation work has been successfully completed . It is expected that the farmers will get good return from 4th year onwards.
