Abstract


This study was undertaken to assess the financial profitability of aromatic rice production. A total of 45 farmers of some selected villages of Chirirbandar upazila of Dinajpur district were considered as sample for achieving these objectives. To collect data, a questionnaire was administrated through face-to-face interviews of the sample farmers. Collected data were analyzed with descriptive statistics. The result of descriptive analysis revealed that the average family size of aromatic rice growers was 4.64 and 88.88 percent of total sample farmers were literate. Total costs for aromatic rice was estimated at Tk. 64446.51 per hectare and per hectare gross return of aromatic rice was Tk. 114243.71. Gross margin for aromatic rice was estimated at Tk. 59999.29 per hectare. Thus, the net return was estimated at Tk. 49797.20 for aromatic rice production. The undiscounted Benefit Cost Ratio on the basis of total cost was 1.77 implying that the aromatic rice production was highly profitable. Finally, some policy recommendations based on the findings of the study were suggested in the study.
