Agroforestry is not a new concept in Bangladesh. This concept has been practising
in this country for a long time. A case study of financial analysis on agroforestry
research conducted at Ichamati Research Centre under Chittagong district was done.
Tire financial analysis of both the tree crops and agricultural crops has been done
separately and combinedly. The trees were considered as fuelwood with six years
rotation. In both the cases, tire result is found to be negative. The present worth of
benefit is Tk. 12,610 (US$1 = Tk. 40/-) and the present worth of cost is Tk. 44,947. The
net present worth is Tk. 32,337 with a benefit-cost ratio of 0.28. The agroforestry trial
would, however, be profitable if 18 years rotation of the trees with ploe values and
other intangible benefit are considered.
