DAE Policy

The Government is committed to the continued development of agriculture in order to maintain food supplies for the growing population, provide income and employment for rural people, and protect the environment. Because land is scarce in Bangladesh, the key to agricultural development is the efficient, productive and sustainable use of all firm land. This will depend on the farmers who decide what to produce, what technology and inputs to use, how much to sell, and how much care to take in looking after their crops, livestock, fish and trees.
