The farmers of Nokla Upazila of Sherpur district are happy in cultivating ‘Muri Paddy’. This rice is cultivated free of cost and farmers do not need to worry about paying money to cultivate this. Farmers need only the Boro Paddy’s land to cultivate ‘Muri Rice’. These lands are suitable to ‘Muri Rice’ which makes happy to Nokla’s farmers. The farmers are being profited with the rice.
This Muri rice is called 'Roton Crop' in English. After harvesting paddy, sugarcane, banana, the residue re-grows from the base and Muri is being made form this. However after one and a half or two months since harvesting the ‘Boro Rice,’ the same lands are used for ‘Muri Paddy’ cultivating. Near 400-480kg grains of Muri Rice are available from per acre.
Within 15 to 20 days of cutting Boro Kushi re-grow and within 10 to 15 days the rice tree will grow up. After 15 to 20 days rice becomes suitable for harvesting. Farmers can collect rice two times at the same land and at the same cost.
In Muri paddy farmers have no needs to cultivate and plant this for over again. Moreover, care is taken in less. As a result, there is no production cost if the yield is low but farmers have ample opportunity to benefit.
Baneshwordi UP Farmer Shahidul Islam Gora Mia, a farmer from Baneshwordi village, said, ‘After cutting boro rice in 30 shatok lands, leaving it for a test of Muri paddy. The yield has been very good, one maund paddy or more than it comes from per Katha land. Many in the area are interested in cultivating Muri Paddy to see this success.
Agriculture Extension Officer Agriculturist Sheikh FazlulHaque Mani said, ‘It is necessary to take care of the livestock without any kind of damage till the paddy harvest. Cleansing of weeds and dead leaves, fungicide, extra water drainage, a small amount of urea and potash fertilizers to yield better. Secondly, the rice is comparatively smaller in size than the previously collected rice. The twist and slip by this paddy are very nice and tasty and the rice produced by the rice is quite delicious.’
Agriculture Extension Officer Agriculturist Syed Raihanul Haider said, ‘immediately after cutting Boro rice, 8 to 12 kg urea and 6 to 10 kg MOP (potash) in per acre is useful to get more yield. In addition, if the excess water accumulated in the field, then it is necessary to extract the crop if it is frozen.
Upazila agriculture officer Agriculturist Paresh Chandra Das said, ‘In addition to applying an appropriate amount of urea and potash fertilizers after Boro cultivation, agriculture department is regularly advised to ensure that cattle do not damage crops. Production of Muri Crop is higher in paddy fields of BR-20 and BR-20 varieties but it is possible to produce of Muri paddy also in hybrid varieties rice lands.’
