The country is highly dependent on its agriculture. Aside from the fact that a large amount of food for the country comes from this sector, there is also a large amount of food being exported to other countries as well. However, recently the amount of arable land has been decreasing at the rate of two percent per year around the country. This is a threat to the train of development which is slowly gaining speed in all sectors.
In regard to the countrywide development, there are also plans which intend to develop the agriculture sector to world class standard. This has definitely been in the pipeline for long and it is high time for modernization in agriculture to take place. Recent reports published in this daily point to the fact that the present government of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is focused on industrialization without bypassing the agriculture.

anymore in future rather whatever is left
must be cultivated using modern technology
But, it is to be kept in mind that the country’s arable lands must not be subjected to destruction. There are arable lands in the country where crops are grown yearly. Moreover, there are lands which grow crops three times each year. These must never come under harm as it is a crucial part of Bangladesh’s economy.

There are numerous new facilities which are being provided by the government at the upazila level which can be availed by the farmers to help them with their production. Also, there are plans to establish 100 special economic zones in the country which will focus on the establishment of industries. This initiative is a highly appreciated one which will ultimately help Bangladesh grow into a developed country.
