Rice is considered as one of the monumental sources of human energy in Bangladesh. It can be stated that a vital element by which agronomic sector has been earned most of the quantity of profits for national development in this country is rice. This study covers the data of rice including the time from1972 to 2016 has been collected from secondary sources of Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics. Different statistical tools have been used to complete the analysis. The analysis exposes that the area, production and yield of rice have improved meaningfully. Despite the production has been increased, It is not enough to full fill the shortage of the country. Therefore, advance research in this sector should be conducted with the assistance of researchers, government and policy makers. By this way new ideas and findings could be generated in order to improve the growth of rice.
