JOYPURHAT, Dec 03: Commercial bean cultivation has turned the fortune wheel of hundreds of grassroots farmers in all the five upazilas of the district.

Sub-assistance agriculture officer of DAE Azizur Rahman said bean grows everywhere. Farmers cultivate it at their homesteads, fallow land and the main land and achieve good yield.

Bean is now available in the market. It is selling at Tk 30 to Tk 40 per kg in the kitchen markets across the district.

A high official of the Department of Agriculture Extension (DAE) said, "We hope the bean growers will be able to make a profit of Tk 12 million this season."

Deputy Director of DAE Sudhindra Nath Roy said bean cultivation is a profitable venture for low production cost and healthy return.

Growers should expand the production of the winter delicacy for more profit.
