AERI started the BRRI dhan75 cultivation and seed business at the farmer level
Rice is the main crop in the agrarian economy of Bangladesh. About 76% of the population of Bangladesh lives in rural regions, and 47.5% of all labor is employed in agriculture. The destruction of rice fields occurs at an alarming rate in many nations due to water stagnation, salinization, erosion, and human settlements. Bangladesh is one of the world’s most densely populated nations, and it urgently needs to significantly expand agricultural output to feed its hordes of hungry citizens. 11.63% of Bangladesh’s GDP is derived from agriculture.
Agribusiness Education and Research International (AERI) is a research firm that started BRRI dhan75 cultivation through trial implementation at the farmer level. Agribusiness Education and Research International (AERI) also started the BRRI dhan75 cultivation and seed business at the farmer level.

With an average yield of 6-7 tons per hectare, BRRI dhan75 is likewise a high-yielding cultivar. A relatively low-maintenance crop, it is also resistant to many common pests and illnesses.
BRRI dhan75 is a high yielding variety of rice that also has a short crop cycle and good quality. It features long, elongated grains with a pleasant scent and flavor. Its popularity among consumers and farmers is a result of this.
Farmers benefit from a number of things due to BRRI dhan75’s early maturity. The first benefit is that they may harvest their rice crop early and sell it for more money. Additionally, it enables them to grow a different crop, such maize, mustard, or lentils, on the same land. They may earn more money overall as a result of this.
A promising new Aman rice variety named BRRI dhan75 has the potential to boost Bangladesh’s agricultural output and revenue. Farmers who desire to grow several crops in a year may find it to be very useful.
