Fertilizer industry is one of the most necessary industries a country like Bangladesh. Now a day Bangladeshi Farmers are become enthusiastic for producing more and more crops is limited land area. So demand of fertilizer is increasing day by day. As a result our fertilizer producing company needs to produce more fertilizer for meet up our domestic demand. There are more than 35 lakhs Metric ton for fertilizer we need to produce for our country but still we cannot produce at least half of our demand of product. So that private industries are needed to establish for meet up our demand of fertilizer. We have huge reserve of nature gas. Natural gas is most important for producing fertilizer. Natural gas is cheap than other country in Bangladesh. We have skilful worker and all production resources are cheap in our country. So production process continuality is must is our country. While our most of the fertilizer company, which are govt., owned they are closing day by day. So government is falling under pressure for fertilizer during harvesting period. Government are loosing huge amount of foreign currency for importing fertilizer. As a result our economy are become depends on foreign production of fertilizer.

LIMITATION OF THE STUDY
The study has been conducted subject to certain limitations. Time constraint is one of the major limitations. I have been allowed only one day for the industrial tour, which is not enough to study and industry in depth.

i) Most of the official was so much busy to provide me enough time. ii) Difficult to contact with all top management
iii) Lack of enough financial support.
