Can boro harvest prevent a food crisis in the country?
This season's boro harvesting is at the door. Yet, the price hike of rice continues.
This comes as the situation in Russia and Ukraine, the two largest wheat exporters to Bangladesh, worsens, and India, another significant supplier of wheat imports, has halted wheat exports from their nation.

In today's Straight from Star Newsroom, The Daily Star Chief Reporter Pinaki Roy joins Debjani Shyama to discuss any possible food crisis, as well as the existing scenario.
