Right now 71 agri-entrepreneurs of 28 Krishi Kendra are supplying agricultural inputs to 15,530 farmers and are also involved in the marketing of their products. Another 50 agri-entrepreneurs of 10 Krishi SANJOG centres provided advisory services to 4,700 farmers and also established demonstration plots on new agricultural technologies for encouraging the farmers. As a result, production and productivity of targeted farmers have been increased. Finally, 121 agri-entrepreneurs of 38 Krishi Kendra and Krishi SANJOG centre made a profit of BTD 4,473,806. Apart from this, agri-entrepreneurs made additional profit of BDT 71,000 by the production and marketing of vermin-compost and rice seed.
