Improvements of traditional floating gardens for vegetable production in Bangladesh

Summary

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