Bangladesh Sugar Crop Research Institute Bill, 2019 was passed in Parliament on Tuesday to conduct research on other sugar crops alongside sugarcane in the country.

Agriculture Minister M Abdur Razzaque moved the bill and it was passed by voice vote.

The proposed law will replace the existing Bangladesh Sugarcane Research Institute Act 1996.

The bill was placed to expand research areas as sugar is produced not only from sugarcane but also from palm, date, golpata and other sweet crops and trees.

Crops like palm, date, golpata and sugar bit were now being used to produce sugar alongside sugarcane.





The proposed legislation made no major change but added a provision to nominate a representative from Bangladesh Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (BCSIR).
