Factors Associated with the extent of Vegetable Production

The study was conducted in Tumulia Union of Kaligong Upazila under Gazipur district. The findings revealed that the overage level of income from the vegetable production of the three categories: landless with homestead, marginal and small farm size. The variables like farm size and annual family income of the women-members had low association with the extent of vegetable production. However, full achievement of the target program could not be made due to inadequate irrigation facilities, economic hardship, and low market price of vegetable and poor rood communication and transportation facilities. These problems were probably some of the reasons for not favorable attitude among the women-members for the expansion of vegetable cultivation.
