  Propagation of mango by modified cleft grafting during 15 June showed higher percentage of survival in compare with cleft and veneer grafting irrespective of varieties. The percentage of success was, however, higher in June by modified cleft grafting but in August by veneer grafting. Propagation of plants during June by modified cleft grafting showed highest scion growth with highest number of leaves and shoots.

  To find out the effect of nitrogen and the proper method of its application for maximizing the yield of potato, four doses of nitrogen, 0, 60, 120 and 180 kg ha-1, supplied as urea (containing 46% N), and five different methods of its application, were used. All top dressing operations were done in two installments of equal quantity at 30 and 50 days after planting (DAP) of potato tuber. All the parameters studied were differed significantly among the doses and methods of urea application. Application of urea @ 180 kg N ha -1 as 50% basal + 50% top dressing produced the highest yield among the doses and methods, and it was found to be the most cost effective (1.99). It might be concluded that 180 kg N ha -1 and split application (50% basal + 50% top dressing in two installment of 30 and 50 DAP) was superior to all other treatments to avoid the detrimental effect of urea on plant emergence, growth and tuber yield in Bangladesh.

  An experiment was conducted at the Horticulture Farm of Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh during the period from December, 1995 to examine the effects of different mulch materials on potato yield. There were seven mulching treatments viz., no mulch with no irrigation (control), no mulch with irrigation, natural mulch with irrigation, rice straw water hyacinth, black polythene and white polythene. The mulching treatments were applied on two potato varieties viz., Lal Pakri and Cardinal. The experiment was laid out in randomized complete block design with three replications. The black polythene mulch took minimum time (12 days ) to reach 80% emergence. Variety Lal pakri took longer time (97.33 days) to attain maturity than the Cardinal (87.91 days) and white polythene mulch enhanced early maturity (89.17 days), while natural mulch + irrigation treatment took longer time, (96.33 days). The maximum yield was obtained from water hyacinth mulching (47.70 t ha-1 for Cardinal and 28.4 t ha-1 for Pakri) and the lowest was in the control (38.54 and 19.79 t ha-1 for Cardinal and Lal Pakri, respectively). Water hyacinth mulch was found to be economically best mulching treatment.
