TREND AND INTER-TEMPORAL PADDY PRICE FLUCTUATION IN BANGLADESH

The article examines the trend and annual and seasonal paddy price fluctuations in Bangladesh. The terms of trade improved in favour of agriculture in the 80s as revealed by the trend in real paddy prices and trend in agricultural prices compared to industrial prices. Annual paddy price fluctuation in the 80s was comparatively less. The seasonal variations of paddy prices have been found to have declined in the recent years. The study shows that the internal procurement has no significant impact on seasonal variation of paddy prices in Bangladesh. However, seasonal storage period and production of Aus, Boro and wheat have influenced the seasonal price variation of Aman paddy significantly.
