  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.

  The present study was undertaken to determine the effect of capacity building on household expenditure and nutrition of farmers in Bangladesh. A field survey was conducted in three districts of Bangladesh between April 2006 and March 2007. The study areas have similar geographical and climatic conditions and land is equally suitable for vegetables, rice and other crops like oilseeds. The farmers with high capacity building ability earn more income than the farmers of low capacity building category. The additional income earning is associated with the improvement of technical, social, natural and human capital of farmers. The farmers with high capacity building category changes their household expenditure pattern to uptake a balanced nutrition. They are able to uptake balanced nutrition reducing their consumption expenditure percentages and invest their money in productive areas which increases their per capita income and savings. Therefore, capacity building influences positively the balanced nutrition of the farmers changing their consumption expenditure pattern.
