Vegetable Cultivation under HILIP, LGED-IFAD. A case of Vegetable Cultivation in Haor Areas of Sunamganj, Bangladesh

This document portrays and analyses the experience, enabling and disabling factors, best practices and lessons learned from the vegetable cultivation in Radhanagar, Sunamganj under the Haor Infrastructure and Livelihood Improvement Project (HILIP) funded by the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) in Bangladesh. The project has introduced vegetable cultivation using fallow land (usually uncultivated land) in many parts of the Haor areas. Radhanagar in Sunamganj district is one of such villages where the project has motivated farmers to adopt vegetable cultivation which is more profitable than rice cultivation. The village has become known as “Vegetable Village” due to the rapid expansion of vegetable cultivation by the villagers within a very short period of time
