POST HARVEST RICE PROCESSING SYSTEMS IN RURAL BANGLADESH: TECHNOLOGY, ECONOMICS AND EMPLOYMENT

Over 90 Percent of rice produced in Bangladesh is processed by women in their homesteads and in small custom mills located in the rural areas. These technologies have so far been neglected by both economists and engineers, while trying to find appropriate technology mix for rice processing in Bangladesh. This paper presents an analysis of the relative economics and employment effects of the rural processing technologies and their implications for choice of technology mix for rice processing in Bangladesh.
