MARKETED SURPLUS OF PADDY AT THE FARM LEVEL IN BANGLADESH: AN ANALYSIS BY CAUSAL VARIABLES OF PRODUCTION AND CONSUMPTION

Two basic factors-paddy production and rice consumption-determining marketed surplus of paddy were analysed in terms of their causal variables using data collected from three categories of farmers randomly selected from different parts of Bangladesh. The causal variables considered were paddy area and yield as determinants of paddy production; farm size and intensity of paddy cultivation as determinants of paddy area; resource endowment, tenurial status and HYV technology as determinants of paddy yield; family size measured in adult male equivalent unit as determinant of rice consumption. Land being limited in the country, yield expansion measures are particularly suggested for increasing production and marketed surplus of paddy. Family planning measures are also expected to contribute to the increase in marketed surplus.
