Giving students practical education on agriculture is essential, said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Sunday. 

"From childhood they should know about the process of agricultural production," she said. 

The prime minister said this while distributing 'Bangabandhu Jatiya Krishi Purashkar' for Bengali year 1421 and 1422 at a function at Osmani Memorial Hall in Dhaka, as per a BSS report. 

Hasina also said many children particularly the urban kids don't know from where their staple food and fruits they eat round the year come from. 

"In many developed countries, she said, kids find supermarkets as the source of their foods and fruits. We don't want our children to be blind in such a way, and they should be taken to the agriculture fields," she said. 

Hasina said she has already asked the education minister for inclusion of such educative system in the curriculum which will take the students to the agriculture fields during their academic session and give them some tasks on cultivation and harvesting of crops. 

Every Bengali year, the government gives Bangabandhu Jatiya Krishi Purashkar', highest state recognition for contribution to the development of the country's agriculture sector. 

Five gold, nine silver and 18 bronze medals in 10 categories are given to different organisations and individuals in each year for their contribution to the agriculture development and research. 

The awardees received medals, cash and certificates from the prime minister. 

Agriculture Minister Matia Chowdhury presided over the function while Minister for Environment and Forests Anwar Hossain Monju was present as special guest. 

Agriculture Secretary Moinuddin Abdullah conducted the award distribution ceremony.
