Importance, Structural Change and Factors Affecting Production of Vegetables in Bangladesh

M. Kamurzzaman and Hiroyuki Takeya

The present study was undertaken to find out the importance, structural change and factors affecting production of vegetables over a period of 1972-73 to 2003-04. The results indicated that vegetables are being an important component of crop production in Bangladesh in terms of area, production, value addition to GDP and export earnings. There was a structural change in vegetable production in the post policy reform period due to research, extension and export promotion activities. Policy reform, area and humidity variables showed statistically significant influence on different types of vegetable production. If policy reforms in terms of research and extension program and attracting foreigners investment for exporting of vegetables is continued than vegetable production may increase further. Practicing of crop rotation might increase area under these crops production. Special care should also be taken for developing disease resistant high yield potential vegetable varieties for increasing and sustaining vegetable production.
