Research Achievement

As a new division, the following findings were published from the year 2013-18.

Profitability analysis revealed that cultivation of BINA developed varieties like Binadhan-5, Binadhan-7, Binadhan-8, Binadhan-10, Binadhan-11, Binadhan-14, Binachinabadam-4; Binatil-1, Binatil-2 & Binatil-3, Binasoybean-2, Binasarisha-4, Binasarisha-9, Binamoog-8 and Binamasur-5 are profitable. The average Benefit Cost Ratio (BCR) of these varieties is greater than one, indicating cultivation of those varieties is profitable (Table-1).

The average yield of Binadhan-5 is good (6.1 t ha-1). The net return was highest in Rangpur, (Tk. 30665 ha-1) followed by Bhola (Tk. 24650 ha-1), Sherpur (Tk. 20147 ha-1), Sylhet (Tk. 17291 ha-1), Satkhira (Tk. 17681 ha-1) and B.Baria (Tk. 15791 ha-1), respectively. On an average, the Benefit Cost Ratio (BCR) is 1.85, which means that Binadhan-5 growers benefited of Tk. 0.85 for each Taka spent.

Future plan

1. Socio-economic studies and impact assessment of BINA developed improved varieties & technologies,

2. Financial and Economical Profitability analysis, Adoption and Estimate different Resource use efficiency measures.

3. Examine value chain analysis, the yield gap, risk and uncertainty of mutant varieties/technologies and their remedial measures at farm level.

4. Identify economically profitable varieties & technologies to farmers for adoption of climate change;

5. Evaluate effect of transferred technologies to increase production and livelihood improvement of farmers;

6. Monitor the marketing, management, extension, determine & forecast for variety development, stability by using descriptive and inferential statistics, economic, formula and model for situation analysis.

7. Generate information and address the researchable issues through farm level investigations of different varieties/ technologies to suggest guidelines for researchers and policy makers.
