Date (Phoenix dactylifera) is a noble fruit cultivated mainly in dry and hot area of the globe. Wild relative of date palm (Phoenix sylvestris) is frequently grown all over Bangladesh. A long-term study had been initiated in 2013 with the seeds of 10 famous date cultivars collected from the International Centre for Biosaline Agriculture (ICBA), Uni...

Unavailability of suitable technologies including stress-tolerant cultivars, management options, irrigation facilities as well as extension supports are the key challenges for intensification of cropping through horizontal and vertical extension approaches. This study assesses the potential for increasing rice production through a horizontal extens...

Built on deep-rooted political and cultural heritage, ‘rice security’ is the foundation of ‘food security’ in Bangladesh. The country has been in production-surplus of rice in the current decade feeding over 165 million people. This on-going ‘selfsufficiency momentum’ would require to maintain to meet increased demand from growing future population...

p>Comilla region is highly diverse in respect to topography, agro-ecology, land-use pattern and cropping systems. Planning of agricultural development largely depends on the reliable and comprehensive statistics of the existing cropping patterns, cropping intensity and crop diversity of a particular area, which will provide guideline to our policy...
Article
p>Towards the sustainable food security for a particular area, the policymakers, researchers, extension and development agents need the detailed information of cropping patterns, cropping intensity and crop diversity. Sylhet, a potential region of enormous potentiality of growing crops across the haor area lying below the northeastern Himalyan foot...

p>This study was conducted in all 25 upazilas of Chittagong Hill Tracts during 2016 using a pre-designed and pre-tested semi-structured questionnaire for documenting the existing cropping pattern, crop diversity and cropping intensity. Boro-Fallow-T. Aman was the most dominant cropping pattern in Chittagong Hill Tracts (15.06%) existed in all upazi...
Article
p>Thorough understanding and a reliable database on existing cropping patterns, cropping intensity and crop diversity of a particular area are needed for guiding policy makers, researchers, extensionists and development workers for the planning of future research and development. During 2016 a study was accomplished over all 34 upazilas of Jessore...

p>The study was conducted over all 42 upazilas of Chittagong region during 2016 using pre-tested semistructured questionnaire with a view to document the existing cropping patterns, cropping intensity and crop diversity in the region. The most dominant cropping pattern Boro−Fallow−T. Aman occupied about 23% of net cropped area (NCA) of the region w...

p>Agricultural land use and distribution of cultivated crops expressed in cropping pattern (CP) constitute the base for increasing produtivity. An in-depth study was conducted on the existing CPs of Bangladesh in each and every upazila (sub-districts) using semi structured questionnaire and data validation by the stakeholder consultation workshop c...

Nitrogen (N) is commonly applied in equal split during different growth stages of rice. However, higher requirement of N during panicle initiation (PI) stage emphasizes relatively higher N dose at that particular stage. A field experiment was conducted during dry seasons (November-May) of two consecutive years from 2013 to 2015 to determine appropr...

... Whereas production contribution of Aman season was higher from 1969-70 to 1997-98. Boro season is less vulnerable to rice disease, pests and other natural calamities and government incentives on Boro cultivation more specifically on irrigation facilities increase the Boro cultivation area [6,18]. Moreover, after the release of two Boro mega varieties, BRRI dhan28 and BRRI dhan29 in 1994, the second silent green revolution of rice has occurred in Bangladesh. ...
... Rice is synonymous with food security in Bangladesh, and economic and political stability is highly correlated with rice price volatility (Kabir et al. 2020;Sayeed and Yunus 2018). Rice prices raise farmers' incomes and livelihoods. ...
... folds of exclusive non-rice area. In Bogra region crop diversity is much wider than that of other regions like Sylhet and Chittagong where exclusive rice area covers 37 folds and 23 folds, respectively of exclusive non-rice areaShahidullah et al., 2017). Appropriate cropping patterns may facilitate maximum possible land utilization as well as efficient use of other scarce resources in a sustainable manner. ...
... Again, crops grown in different cropping patterns and environments responded differently to fertilizer nutrients. Mineral fertilizer inputs are the crucial factors to the overall nutrient balance in intensive cropping systems [31,32]. ...
... Cumilla region is highly diversified in respect to topography, agro-ecology, land-use pattern and cropping system. Barura upazila occupies the highest cropping intensity (CI) of 292% followed by Debidwar (265%) and Chandina (250%) under Cumilla district which are much more higher than the national average rendering those upazilas as the most intensive cropping area of the country (Saha et al., 2017). Cumilla is the highest rice growing district in Bangladesh where Boro-T. ...
... The experimental site belongs to tropical wet and dry weather under the active ganges river floodplain (AEZ-10) (Mostafizur et al., 2018). Figure 1 showed the average monthly climatic condition of the study area during 2020. ...
... Thus, efficient methods for surface water management are beneficial to many factors such as economy profit and groundwater protection. Surface water resources management is possible through improvement of cropping intensity based cropping pattern (Parvin et al. 2017). Cropping pattern and cropping intensity are greatly influenced by irrigation. ...
... The highest and lowest temperatures are about 36 °C (in April to October) and 9.7 °C (in January), respectively. The study area is dominated mainly by agricultural land, and almost 90.24% of cropland is covered by rice cultivation (Muttaleb et al. 2017). The Surma and the Kushiara are two major rivers that define the Sylhet districts as lowlands with massive annual flooding. ...
... FAO classified the land area of Bangladesh into 30 different agroecological zones based on physiography, depth and duration of seasonal flooding, length of growing period, length of unreliable rainfall, length of winter, and frequency of high summer temperatures (UNDP, 1988). The soil type determines the types of crops planted and the cultivation practices (Nasim et al., 2018). As part of the Ganges delta, the land is enriched with fertile alluvial soil and rice is the majorly cultivated crop, occupying three-quarters of the country's crop coverage area (Huda et al., 2014). ...
... Mohiuddin (2009) documented 23 rice varieties and 55 crop species as jhum agro-biodiversity and these species are used as cereals, spices, vegetables, culinary herbs and oil producing plants. Agriculture crops including fruits and trees provide both subsistence uses and cash incomes for local ethnic groups (Quais et al. 2017). But the main cultivated crops are limited to seven including rice paddy, turmeric, ginger and banana. ...
