Natural seed production is going to lose due to extreme weather change

Natural seed production process is gradually being lost to climate change and lack of awareness. This puts pressure on the marginal farmers and at the same raises food prices. The six seasons are being lost to climate change which brings with it unusual changes in temperature and rainfall. Farmers themselves say they often have to resort to hybrid seeds during droughts and unusually heavy monsoon. Agriculture expert Mahbub Hossain says farmers need technology as well as training. Currently high yielding varieties account for 80 percent of Bangladesh’s harvest. However, the number of complaints from disgruntled farmers who have been deceived by commercial seed sellers is also on the rise.
