SOJAG procured a Combined Harvester from BRRI (Bangladesh Rice Research Institute) on loan for a month and had it deployed in harvesting IRRI crop recently in Shailan and other adjoining villages of Dhamrai.
This awesome machine can harvest one acre of paddy field in about an hour. The paddy is separated from the stalks and collected in a sack leaving the stalks in the ground to be collected and bundled easily. This operation does away a few processing steps and makes life so much easier for the farmer. This has generated enormous interest amongst the farmers. SOJAG is planning to obtain one such Combined Harvester to be used in the coming harvesting season.
