Md. Ziaul Ahsan Chowdhury, M. N. Uddin, M. N. Islam and M. S. Islam    

Abstract: The study was undertaken to determine the economic performance of tossa (Corchorus olitorius ) jute at growers level. The results revealed that per hectare average cost of production of Tossa Jute were Tk.16538.91 and Tk.8106.09 on variable cost and cash cost basis, respectively while per hectare gross return was estimated to Tk.28375.85. The average yield of Tossa jute was 1720.16 kg ha -1. The yield was higher in Faridpur (1826.40 kg ha -1) compared to Rangpur (1669.07 kg ha -1 ) and Dhaka (1665 kg ha -1 ). The gross margins were Tk.11836.94 ha -1 and Tk.20269.75 ha -1 on total variable cost and cash cost basis respectively. The average benefit-cost ratios were 1.72 and 3.50 respectively on total variable cost and cash cost basis. Lower price of fibre, non-availability of HYV seeds at proper time, shortage of buyers, high input cost, absence of fair price in terms of fibre quality etc. were addressed as problems by the farmers.
