That little one went to Korea Today we will hear a success story of our Khulna division. He is now 11th in the list of successful farmers of the country. His success is only by cultivating kachu. Not just sitting with kachu. Now he is cultivating Chuijhal, Bt brinjal, guava and has done cattle farm.
Newton Mandal of Ghona Madardanga village in Rangpur union of Dumuria upazila of Khulna. Panikchur fields can be seen along the Daulatpur-Shahpur road of the metropolis. He is now known in the area as Kachu Newton. At one time Newton Mandal worked in a private jute mill. While working in a jute mill, he contracted a respiratory illness. He quit his job at the mill. What to do in a world of scarcity. He started farming with 34 acres of land next to his house. As it was not profitable, in 2005 he planted Panikchur saplings of local variety in some parts of the land. Then he did not have to look back. Now the amount of land is 55 percent. The rent of this land is 12 thousand rupees per year. Now he earns about 5 lakh rupees every year by selling kachuralati, flowers and kachu and saplings. There has been quite a reputation in the area. The saplings are planted in their own way by collecting some native panicle saplings from the fence. Planting is completed between December and January. Kachu saplings are planted at a distance of three feet. Cultivation is done with a spade one foot deep. After planting the seedlings give organic and chemical fertilizers in a balanced manner. After 45 days of planting, the seedlings are suitable for sale. His kachu is up to 6 feet long. Each weighs 20/32 kg. Newton took kachu to Khulna city in his own van and sold it. He also sells using information technology (Facebook). Now preparations are underway to send that Kachu to Korea. Kachu was being removed from the field and cleaned. Later it is cut with one hand and allowed to dry in the sun. After drying for three / four days, he is bringing the kachu to Khulna city and delivering it to the Korean buyer.
Kachu farmer Newton Mandal said, so far my kachu has gone to different parts of the country including Khulna, Barisal, Dhaka. Now that kachu is going out of the country. Once upon a time people walked by but no one looked back. Now people from different parts of the country know me. Many big people come to see my field. Labor never fails. Now the only dream is for the girl to grow up and become a doctor. Will serve the poor, miserable people of the area.
Newton's wife Smritilata Malakar said many people talked a lot in the beginning. We did not stop. And now our family's prosperity is back in that kachu. Our daughter is going to school. I have done cattle farm. Guava cultivation, Bt brinjal and chuijhal cultivation is also getting better.
Dumuria Upazila Agriculture Officer Md. Mosaddek Hossain said Newton Mandal is a good farmer. We are monitoring him regularly. Giving necessary advice. This kachu is quite tasty. His kachu is now being processed to go to Korea.
