Abstract—In the national development of Bangladesh it is necessary to mechanize of on and off- farm agricultural activities. Bangladesh agriculture was completely dependent on tradition and nature until the introduction of Mechanized Cultivation and Power Pump Irrigation. The changes in cropping pattern and cropping intensity due to introduction of HYV rice crop increased a demand of mechanized irrigation, tillage and post-harvest processing of crops to bring timeliness of operation. To assess the present status of agricultural machinery manufacturing and marketing in Bogura and to make a comparison between manufactured and imported agricultural machinery. The study was based on the industry survey where primary data were collected systematically by means interview schedule from individual actors. Then the final result was the manufactured and imported machines and spare parts were of 3925 and 3300 and 1822 and 2100 in 2017 respectively found. Especially for power tillers, irrigation pumps, maize shellers, threshers, liner, piston and many spare parts of small diesel engines and machines. The machinery is imported from foreign countries that bear a high purchase price. For mechanizing the agricultural sector local manufacturer are need to produce required machinery and tools.
