BAGLUNG: Baglung district has witnessed a growth of 20 percent in orange production compared to the last year.

This year, the farmers in the district produced around 4,380 metric tonnes of orange, Chief of Agriculture Knowledge Centre, Baglung, Bhanu Bhakta Bhattarai said.

According to him, the farmers produced orange worth Rs 240 million this year against Rs 200 million of the last year. Suitable weather pattern this year contributed to increased output, he shared.

Likewise, the catchment area of orange is also increased in the recent years after the declaration of orange zone under the Prime Minister Modern Agriculture Program.

“Baglung lies in the mid-hill area and this is a very suitable geography for orange production. The weather and soil here is appropriate for orange farming,” Bhattarai said.

The Agriculture Knowledge Centre is also offering medicine, fertilizers, training and technical assistance to the orange farmers to ensure good output from orange farming.

Baglung municipality, Bihun, Tityang, Bhakunde, Lekhani, Jaimini, Damek and Sarkuwa are the pocket areas for orange production in the district.
