  Resistant rootstock of six Solanum species and 21 cultivated eggplant varieties were identified against bacterial wilt and the graft compatibility of eggplant varieties was studied with wild Solanum rootstocks. Solanum torvum and Solanum sisymbriifolium showed resistance against bacterial wilt. Most of the cultivated varieties showed susceptibility against bacterial wilt. Three cultivated eggplant varieties viz. sufala, singnath and uttara were grafted on Solanum torvum and Solanum sisymbriifolium. The highest grafting success was 95% in case of Solanum torvum x sufala and the lowest 85% in Solanum sisymbriifolium x singnath. The success of grafting was not affected significantly due to the effect of scion and rootstocks. The grafted plants showed resistance against the disease while the scion plants showed susceptibility in the sick beds. The grafted plants also showed resistance reaction against the disease in the field conditions. The fruit maturity was delayed due to grafting but grafting at least 15 days prolonged the harvesting period. The grafted plants also out yielded the scion plants. The grafting combination Solanum torvum x sufala gave the highest yield compared with other grafting combinations and non-grafted plants.

  The experiment was undertaken to determine the effect of spacing on onion cultivation of different varieties. Different spacings were taken 20x10 cm, 15x10 cm, 10x10 cm, 15x7.5 cm, 10x7.5 cm and 7.5x7.5 cm. Three varieties viz BARI Piaz-1, Taherpuri and Faridpur Bhati were used for study. Significantly wider spacing produced higher size of plant height, leaf length and number of leaves. Bulb length, diameter and weight also the same trend in wider spacing. The weight of individual bulb of onion (23.52 g) was increased with the widest spacing (20x10 cm). On the contrary, yield ha–1 was the highest (16.65 t ha–1) at the closest spacing (7.5x7.5 cm) and the lowest (10.05 t ha–1) was at widest spacing (20x10 cm). But in closer spacing, bulb size was so small that was not suitable for the choice of consumer. On the other hand wider spacing produced the highest percentage (24.34%) multiplier bulbs that was not better for storing and consumers demand. So, in respect of economic point of view 15x10 cm spacing recommended in onion cultivation. It was found BARI Piaz-1 performed better in respect of yield and other parameters.
