Farmers should start fennel cultivation in September


Farmers have been advised to start the cultivation of fennel (Saunf) from September to October to get bumper crop.

A spokesman for the Agriculture (Extension) Department said on Sunday that fennel provides relief from anemia, indigestion, flatulence, constipa-tion, colic, diarrhea, respiratory disorders, menstrual disorders, and remedies against eye and heart dis-eases as well.

He also advised the growers to cultivate ap-proved varieties of fennel as standard seeds play a vital role in enhancing production. The fennel could also be sown in fodder crops, he added.—APP
