Cite article:- Hoque! Rezaul ATM., Uddin2 M.M., Islam3 M.J., Hossain4 M.A. (2023). SUPPLY RESPONSE OF MUNGBEAN IN BANGLADESH. Indian Journal of Agricultural Research. 36(4): 241 - 247. doi: .
This paper gives an information about the supply response of mungbean in Dhaka, Chittagong, Khulna and Rajshahi regions of Bangladesh during the period of 1980–81 to 1996–97 (There are six divisions in Bangladesh namely Dhaka, Chittagong, Khulna, Barisal, Sylhet and Rajshahi. In this study Barisal is included in Khulna and Sylhet is included in Chittagong division). Three different response models were developed separately for area, yield and production responses using the Nerlovian partial adjustment model. The lagged price of competing crop and lagged mungbean area significantly influenced current area in Chittagong region. The influence of the time variable in determining area response was found negative for Rajshahi indicating technological backwardness in mungbean cultivation. In Dhaka region, yield response was found significantly negative to lagged own price and positive to time trend. The price and non-price variables were found significant and positive in determining yield response in Khulna region except time trend. The yield response was lound significantly positive to time factor for Chittagong region and own yield lagged by one year for Rajshahi region. Production response was only influenced by own produclion lagged by one year for Khulna region. In case of overall Bangladesh the farmers were found quick to realize the effect of price changes through production.
