He is financially self-sufficient by increasing the amount of land every year due to good yield with proper care. At present there are 6 varieties of kul including Apple kul, Baukul, Ball Sundari, Coconut Sundari, Kashmiri, Thai Sour in his two orchards.

While standing in the garden and expressing his opinion, Rahim said that the flowers in his garden are very sweet and delicious. Wholesalers around Jhalkathi buy cool from his garden.

Rahim also said that two to two and a half lakh rupees were spent on his garden. If there is no damage, the cool can be sold for 6 to 7 lakh rupees.

A kool buyer named Kawsar said, ‘I have come here from Barisal to buy kool. Their kul is very tasty and cheap. I have been buying cool from here for the past two years.’

Farooq Hossain, chairman of Ponabalia Union Parishad, said, ‘In addition to Rahim, many people are cultivating kul in our union. They have succeeded by cultivating kul. Apart from that, many people are interested in cultivation after seeing them. Wholesalers come from far and wide to buy cool from here. Apart from this, many people come to see the garden and buy flowers.’

Agronomist Monirul Islam, Deputy Director of Jhalkathi Agricultural Extension Department said, ‘Kul cultivation is increasing day by day in Jhalkathi. The district and upazila level officials of the Department of Agriculture Extension are giving advice on improved varieties including training, fertilizers, irrigation management to the farmers. We encourage cultivators. Since it is profitable, many educated young people are motivated to cultivate it. It is expected that their employment will increase through kul cultivation.
