This report summarises findings from an ACIAR project that aimed to lift agricultural productivity in southern Bangladesh and address the large and growing wheat deficit of the country. The challenge was to determine whether wheat or other short-duration Rabi (dry-season) crops, including mungbean, could be grown profitably under the hot, humid and sometimes saline conditions of this region.
