Bangladesh is one of the least developed countries in the world. The great majority of its people depend on agriculture for earning their living. Despite planned efforts by the government to increase agricultural productivity for more than three decades, the growth and output in this sector has not kept pace with the growth of population. This a matter of great concern for the people as well as the policy makers of the country. In this book professor Mosharaff Hossain and his colleagues in the research team have attempted an exhaustive analysis of the performance of the crops, fisheries, forestry and livestock sub-sectors since the birth of Bangladesh. All the important issues for agricultural development in Bangladesh have been examined in detail in order to highlight the factors which constrain the growth in agricultural productivity. Those interested to obtain a clear perception about the problems of agriculture in the country and also gaining an insight into the measures which might hasten the process of agricultural development will find of immense value.
