  Present study examined the marketing system’s of broiler farming in Gazipur district and analyzed marketing costs, margin and profits of retailers. It may be concluded from the study that the producers sold broilers to the retailer at farm level. The retailers sold 80 percent of their live broiler to consumers and 20 percent to the institutional buyers in the market. All of the selected sample producers sold live broiler to retailers at the farm level in the study area, because they are: too far from retailers/consumers, are not able to do what is required and are too small as regards output.
Respondent producers and retailers viewed that fluctuation in supply and demand and also in price are major problems for marketing on broiler. Retailers were not affected by the price fluctuation but broiler producers were severely affected by the downward swing of price fluctuation. Proper measures for solutions of the problems will help to develop broiler farming which intern will increase family income and also creation of employment opportunities in the country. More detailed study is required about the marketing system of broiler intermediaries and their costs, margin and profits before making final recommendation.

  There were as many as eleven different maize intercropping technologies detected in the study area namely, Maize + Chilli, Maize + Chilli + Yard long bean, Maize + Chilli + Potato, Maize + Chilli, Maize + Chilli + Potato + Cucumber, Mize + Cow pea, Maize + Cucumber, Maize + Yar long bean + Cucumber, Maize + Sweet groud and Maize + Sweet groud + Tomato. It was found in the study that the highest MRR was received by the intercropping Maize + Chilli + Potato + Cucumber which was 598% and highest ARR was received by Maize + Cucumber intercropping which was 391%. Based -on ARR and MRR, intercropping Maize + Cucumber, Maize + Chilli + Potato + Cucumber should be recommended to the farmers for their adoption.

  This paper examines the extent of adoption of modern technology in Bangladesh and knowledge gap of the farmers about the technology. It was found that 100% of wheat acreage in the country were planted to modern varieties. Wheat area, production and yield in the country increased by 10, 14 and 3.5% per annum during 1971-92. The farmers found to have moderate knowledge gap in most of the practices of modern wheat technology. However, high knowledge gap was observed for recommended fertilizer dose. There were significant difference between the practices recommended and the existing knowledge of the farmers for different production practices. The demonstration farmers of farming system research sites and multi-location testing sites had less knowledge gap than the other farmers. Wheat planting before November is not recommended, late planting is one of the main causes of lower yield of wheat in Bangladesh. Wheat planting after November reduces the yield at the rate of 1.3% per day of delay. The overall data showed a significant difference between the practices recommended and existing technological knowledge of the farmers.

  The present study was designed to determine the wheat supply response to selected factors and to analyze the short run and long run supply responses of wheat in Bangladesh. Time series data from 1972-73 to 1998-99 have been used in the analysis. Econometric and statistical techniques were used to estimate the supply response of wheat at the national level. The price responses of wheat supply under the partial adjustment (PA) model were 0.67 in the short run and in the long run this was 1.06 and was statistically significant. Similarly, the response of wheat supply to lagged irrigation was relatively higher, which was 1.11 in the short run and in the long run it was 1.76. Besides, this was highly significant at 1 per cent level. The adjustment coefficient was 0.63 in the wheat sector during the period. The results indicate that the implementation of a farm price support policy could be used to manipulate wheat supply in Bangladesh. If public expenditures were geared properly to build irrigation infrastructure, it would give positive impacts on wheat supply in the country. If the government would follow a price stabilization policy, it would reduce price risk and would produce a positive impact on wheat supply situation in Bangladesh.
