Agriculture accounts for 17% of total Bangladeshi GDP. Bananas represent 20% of all fruits crops produced in Bangladesh, with a domestic market share of 36%. This study analyzes banana production, marketing, distribution, and value chain functions and relationships. The study focused on the major banana producing area of Bangladesh. Our results show that the major problems are lack of good agricultural practices, which affects overall quality, distribution, and marketing of this important fruit.
