Prices of paddy, rice up in Bangladesh
The prices of paddy and rice have registered a rise in the local markets belying the expectation of the people that their prices would come down with the start of harvesting.

Despite arrival of new paddy in the markets its price has shot up to Tk 410 to 425 per maund from Tk 370 to 385 about three weeks ago.

Coarse rice is selling at Tk 17 to 17.50 per kilogram as against Tk 16 while the fine quality at Tk 22.50 to 23 as against Tk 21 to 21.50.

Local food grain traders have attributed the rise in the prices of paddy and rice to their short supply in the markets.

The traders said the prices

of paddy and rice normally come down every year

during the winter when new paddy arrives in the markets. But this year their prices are showing an upward trend due to short supply, they added.

Aman production suffered a setback in the district due to natural calamities. Drought and heavy rainfall at different periods caused 20 to 30 per cent damage to aman at five upazilas this year.

About 91,000 hectares of land were brought under

aman cultivation at sadar, Sailkupa, Kaliganj, Kotchan-dpur, Mohespur and Harinak-unda upazilas of the district this season.
