Assessment and Analysis Agriculture Situation Update
Current Problems/Vulnerabilities Waterlogging Siltation Erosion Lack of Irrigation Water Lack of Fresh Water Reserver Lack of Polder Management Climate Change Lack of Fresh Water Flow Lack of Appropriate Technology
Reduce scope of crop cultivation Mortality of fruits and plantation crops Affects soil health Waterlogging Risks Siltation Risks Affect drainage system Create water logging Increase flood threat Hamper water flow of canal and river Lack of Appropriate technology Risks Hamper food security
Affect Fertility Decrease cultivable land area Migration of agricultural labor Erosion Risks Lack of Irrigation Water Risks Hamper irrigation Reduce crop production and yield Decrease cultivable land area
Hamper irrigation Reduce crop production and yield Lack of Fresh Water Risks Lack of Polder Management Risks Erosion of soil Hamper plantation crop Outside siltation increase Hamper drainage system
Salinity increased Washing of Land hamperred-Crop production and yield decreased Unavailability of irrigation water Decrease cultivable land area Lack of fresh water Flow Risks
Hamper crop production and yield Soil degradation Crops extinction Affect homestead garden and Fodder cultivation Salinity Risks Lack of Appropriate technology Risks Hamper food security
Development of saline tolerant varieties Development of sustainable crop production technology Multipurpose polder management Development of rain water harvester Establishment of rain water reservoir Excavation and re-excavation of canal and rivers Creating awareness on climate change Technological and other options
Training for farmers on crop production under stress condition Capacity building of the extension agents and officers Coordination among GOB/Donors and NGOs Development of Early warning system on climatic hazards Seed storage facilities on cyclone and flood prone areas Community based extension approach (FFS) Conservation biodiversity Adaptive research Extension-education-research Technological and other options

Cropping Calendar Assessment and Analysis A typical crop calendar for Satkhira SeasonRice cropJanFebMarAprMayJunJulAugSepOctNovDecSystem RabiBoro Irrigated Kharif IAus Rainfed Kharif IIT. Amon Rainfed A typical Rice cropping System calendar for Satkhira The majority of farmers growing aus rice lost their crops to the flood as it was ready for harvest. T aman rice was their post-flood crop.

Around 27,967 fishers and fishermen affected Sadar & Tala: 20,182 fish farmers who suffered damage to fish ponds and lost 9,086 metric tonnes of fish-stock, 1,564 metric tonnes of shrimps and 19.5 million fingerlings.

Assessment and Analysis Upcoming GOB Support for Rice Farmers in Sathkhira District Source: Control Room, DAE, Khamarbari, Dhaka. Each farmer will get 5 kg Aus (HYV) seed, 20 kg Urea, 10kg TSP and 10 kg MOP = total 45 kg production inputs
Upcoming FAO Interventions Assessment and Analysis OUTCOME: The adoption of agricultural diversification, technologies and practices by 1000 farmers from Satkhila District that are unable to grow rice crops because of persistent water-logging of their paddy fields OVERALL GOAL: Reduce vulnerability (by improving food production and income generation) and develop coping mechanisms to protect livelihoods against future flooding and water-logging.
