Bangladesh is predominantly rural and agricultural. In early 1973, of an estimated population of 75 million at least 90 per cent is rural and 80 per cent (60 million) agricultural.1 Almost all the poorest people live in rural areas. The average agricultural holdings are small, crop yields poor, and rural wages very low. About two-thirds of the agricultural population are very poor — being either landless or having less than 2.5 acres of holding per household.
