Forecasting of boro rice production in Bangladesh: An ARIMA approach
Keywords:Production, ARIMA model, Forecasting
AbstractThe study was undertaken to examine the best fitted ARIMA model that could be used to make efficient forecast boro rice production in Bangladesh from 2008-09 to 2012-13. It appeared from the study that local, modern and total boro time series are 1st order homogenous stationary. It is found from the study that the ARIMA (0,1,0) ARIMA (0,1,3) and ARIMA (0,1,2) are the best for local, modern and total boro rice production respectively. It is observed from the analysis that short term forecasts are more efficient for ARIMA models. The production uncertainty of boro rice can be minimizing if production can be forecasted well and necessary steps can be taken against losses. The government and producer as well use ARIMA methods to forecast future production more accurately in the short run.
