POLICY OPTIONS FOR SUPPORTING AGRICULTURAL DIVERSIFICATION
Bangladesh Agricultural Research Institute (BARI)

- Expenditure on cereals decreased 28.87% to 28.41% in urban areas and 41.23% to 39.62% in rural areas between 2000 and 2010.
- Expen. on fruits rose from 4.10% to 5.29% and from 2.59% to 3.49% in urban and rural areas.
- Expen. on fish, meat & eggs and spices rose at national level from 12.48% to 13.71%; 8.02% to 10.31% and 7.13% to 9.99%.
What are the past trends of acreage and production of major food commodities and to what extent they differ from the trends of neighbouring countries like India and Pakistan?
What are the changes in the consumption of different food commodities and how they are related to domestic food production?
What changes have been taken place in financial and economic profitability of different food commodities over time and how they affect their production?
What are the constraints to and opportunities for agricultural diversification in Bangladesh?
What are the determinants of agricultural diversification in Bangladesh?
Figure 4.3 Benefit cost ratio of modern variety rice production in Bangladesh
Figure 4.8 Relative profitability of cereal, in Bangladeshfibre and pulse crops production
The productions of all crops and non-crops enterprises are profitable
2. The profitability of non-cereal crop production is higher than cereal crop production.
3. Perennial fruit prod. are the best and livestock & poultry are the least profitable agricultural commodities.

DIVERSIFICATION IN AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTION and Top Quintile Groups
The overall agricultural diversity is increasing with fluctuating nature.
A sharp increase that took place in 2007 which was due to the combined effect of sharp increase in the productions and prices of some vegetables, spices, fruits, and fishes.
The highest AD took place at Chittagong and Barisal region over the time due to the increase of the productions and prices of some non-cereal commodities.
The lowest AD took place at Rangpur and Rajshahi region. Its implying a wide scope for diversifying agriculture through introducing high value crops and non-crop commodity to the existing agricultural farming in future.
Marginal effect of different variables included in the probit model
Dependent variable = ADI (0 to 1)
Marginal effect of variables determining AD at national level
