ECONOMIC STUDY OF BINADHAN-14 PRODUCTION IN SOME SELECTED AREAS OF BANGLADESH
This study was conducted to analyze the profitability of Binadhan-14 producing farmers in Mymensingh, Rangpur, Cumilla and Magura districts of Bangladesh. This study was based on primary data which were collected from 160 Binadhan-14 producing farmers. In the sampled areas data were collected through pre-designed interview schedule from May-June, 2018 for achieving the purpose. The cultivation of Binadhan-14 was profitable from the point of view of the farmers. The average net return per hectare was Tk. 36666. Benefit cost ratio was at 1.45 and 2.02 on full cost and variable cost basis implying that the Binadhan-14 cultivation at farm level was profitable. Cobb-Douglas production function was chosen to determine the factor affecting gross return of Binadhan-14 production. Most of the factors namely, human labour cost, power tiller cost, seed cost, fertilizer cost, irrigation cost and insecticides cost were statistically significant and positive. The farmers in the study areas encountered some constraints to Binadhan-14 production. The first ranked constraint was unavailability of seeds in all areas (87%). Other constraints were shattering problem (67%), lack of training (37%), lack of technical know-how (31%), lack of capital (26%) and low education level of farmers (15%). The economic return of Binadhan-14 production was encouraging to the farmers for more cultivation of the variety.
