Newly-harvested jute in Narsingdi markets
NARSINGDI, Sept 23 (BSS): The newly harvested jute has started coming in the local markets and other growth centres for the last couple of days. The growers here are happy as they are getting fair price of jute this year.
The new jute is being sold at Tk 1800 to 2000 per mound (40-kg) depending on their varieties and qualities.
The growers urged the authorities concerned to purchase their jute of all qualities at different rates. They said the purchasing agencies of the jute mills of Bangladesh Jute Mills Corporation (BJMC) are purchasing only the best quality jute at higher rates from the local markets.
As a result organized syndicates are showing less interest for purchasing the comparatively lower quality jute from the local markets.
