  An experiment was conducted to find out the effect of planting geometry and number of plants hill‾1 on the yield and quality of groundnut seeds. The experiment consisted of two planting geometry, viz., square planting (22.4 x 22.4 cm2) and rectangular planting (30.0 x 16.7 cm2) and three levels of number of plants hill‾1 viz., one, two and three plants hill‾1. Results showed that planting geometry affected the yield and yield components significantly. Rectangular planting gave significantly higher yield than did square planting system. But square-planting system gave significantly higher percentage of both protein and oil in seed. Two plants hill‾1 gave significantly higher yield than that of one plant and three plants hill‾1. Protein content was significantly affected due to the number of plants hill‾1 where two plants hill‾1 gave the maximum result (25.58%) which was insignificantly followed by that of three plants hill‾1 while oil content remained unaffected. The crops planted in rectangular system (30 x 16.7cm2) with two plants hill‾1 showed maximum pod yield (2.49 t ha‾1). Both protein (26.05%) and oil (50.06%) content was found higher with the crops of square planting system with two plants hill‾1. Therefore, the crops planted in rectangular system (30 x 16.7 cm2) with two plants hill‾1 emerged out as the promising practice for the improvement of yield in groundnut.

  Since jute is the main cash crop of the farmers, they had to sale jute in order to meet family needs. As a result the low market price and low demand of jute have been the major problems of the jute growers. The third and fourth problems were "inadequate knowledge of the farmers in grading jute fibre" with problem index 339 and "no price incentive for quality fibre at primary market" with problem index 320 and rank order 3 and 4 respectively. Farmers do not receive remunerative prices due to high quality fibres in primary market. Because of non-availability of high yielding variety (HYV) jute seeds on the sowing period, farmers are not interested in HYV jute cultivation. "Farmers inability to purchase costly seed" and "lack of adequate knowledge of improved technologies on jute cultivation" had a problem index of 278 and 255 respectively. During the sowing period, price of HYV jute seed becomes high and goes beyond the purchasing capacity of small farmers. Farmers suggested solutions to the problems faced are fixing fair price of jute at farm level that are remunerative to them and adequate arrangement for supply of HYV seeds at sowing period.
