Future Fertiliser Demand for Sustaining Rice production in Bangladesh: A Quantitative Analysis

This research report has been developed, based upon the historical data on the last few years rice production and consumption, demand and supply of fertilisers and cropping intensity in Bangladesh. In this study, the total requirement for commonly used three fertilisers, Urea, Triple Supper phosphate (TSP) and Muriate of potash (MP), has been assessed on the basis of fertiliser recommendation dose and actual dose in farmer level. In this research work, average rice production data for the last 10 years and changing trends of Boro, T.Aman and Aus rice production for the same period has also been considered.
