Despite being a food sufficient country after revolutionary change in agricultural inputs, Bangladesh still has food insecurity and undernutrition. Examining the relationship between agricultural practices as social practices to severity of food security, this study concentrated on the potential impact of sociodemographic factors and climate change. Using data from the 2012 Bangladesh Integrated Household Survey (BIHS), this study explores how the agricultural practices (selection of seed, choosing irrigation method, and using fertilizers and pesticides) are strongly associated with different sociodemographic factors (land ownership, religion, gender, education, and occupation) affect the food security in rural household of Bangladesh. I used Linear and Logistic regression models to investigate the association between my dependent and independent variables and found that sociodemographic factors are important predictors of agricultural practices and household food security.
