Mr. Mohsin, one of the members of Mungbean Producer Group of Manpura, Bhola. He has been growing Mungbean for last 15 years but has very limited knowledge and information on improved production practices. After becoming a member of Mungbean Producer Group at Manpura he has participated training on Improved Production and Post-harvesting Practices of Mungbean. He has followed all the modern practices he learned from the training and he was delighted to see the result. He has reported that the training helps him to gain 3 times more production then last year.
