Determination of procurement price of rice in Bangladesh

This report attempts to develop a consistent approach to determining the procurement price of rice and improving the operational effectiveness of the procurement program in order to support farm-level prices of rice at harvest seasons. The report was prepared at the request of the government in connection with the decision on a procurement price for the 1991/92 crop season. Even though the 1991/92 procurement price was the immediate concern, the framework for deriving estimates of procurement prices will remain valid for general application in other years if the price support program continues in Bangladesh.
