Improvements of traditional floating gardens for vegetable production in Bangladesh
Floating agriculture (locally name as vasoman/dhap chash) is a local innovative crop production technology for the submerged ecosystem of the southern region of Bangladesh. Traditionally, the farmers of Gopalganj, Pirojpur and Barisal districts have been practicing the farming technology since about two centuries for adaptation with the flooded/submerged condition. To improve the traditional floating garden agriculture practices for growing cucurbits or creeper type of vegetable crops successfully research programmes were undertaken. This technology describes how the improved practice for vegetable production is implemented and managed.
