M. Asad-ud-doullah, M.K. Anam, Md. Nazrul Islam, M. Rahman, G.A. Fakir and I. Hossain

Abstract:
Six treatments viz. farmer’s seed (uncleaned and unwashed), farmer’s clean seed, farmer’s washed seed, farmer’s clean and washed seed, garlic (1:10) and Vitavex-200 @ 0.3% treated seeds were used for studying their comparative effect on incidence of seedling diseases and grain yield of rice. Seed cleaning followed by washing decreased the seedling diseases viz. brown spot, blast, bakanae, foot rot and seedling blight as of seed treatment with garlic and Vitavex-200. Use of healthy seedling increased the grain yield up to 21.4% over the use of seedling as farmer’s normally use. Use of healthy seedlings has increased the benefit of Tk.4132.28 ha–1 over the use of normal seedling as farmers normally use.
