  The experiments were conducted in the laboratory of Department of Plant Pathology, Bangladesh Jute Research Institute (BJRI), Manik Mia Avenue, Dhaka; Seed Pathology Center, Bangladesh Agricultural University (BAU), Mymensingh, Oil Seed Division, Bangladesh Agricultural Research Institute (BARI). The experiments were conducted during the period 15 January 2010 to 5 March 2012. Nine different types of containers viz. tin pot, plastic pot, poly bag, gunny bag, gunny bag lined with polythene, earthen pot, cloth bag, brown paper and IRRI poly bag, two level of moisture contents viz. farmers’ condition (16%) and recommended moisture condition (9.5%) by Bangladesh Gazette in 2010 and seed treatment with Provax-200 and control (untreated) were used for the present study. Seeds were stored for 12 months and examined after 4, 8 and 12 months of storage. Among the nine containers, tin pot was found better in respect of moisture content, germination, mean germination time, vigour index and 1000 seed weight. Health condition of seeds was also superior compared to other containers. The poorest performance was observed in earthen pot regarding moisture content, germination, mean germination time, vigour index, 1000 seed weight and seed borne infection. The findings of the present study also reveal that recommended moisture content (9.5% moisture content in seed) was better than moisture content at farmers’ condition. Provax-200 treated seed also resulted better performance than non treated (control condition) seed. So, quality of jute seeds can be maintained by storage in tin pot with provax-200 treated and recommendation moisture content (9.5%).

  The experiments were conducted in the field of Jute Agriculture Experimental Station (JAES), Manikgonj and Kishoregonj Regional Station (KRS), Kishoregonj of BJRI. The experiments were conducted during the period April 2012 to January 2013. Top cutting method in respect of different parameters of seed quality differed significantly under different treatments in the present study. Here, before planted cuttings were treated with Dithane M-45 and BAU-Biofungicide. In top cutting method, lowest mortality 4.76% of cuttings were found with BAU-Biofungicide treated cuttings while, highest mortality 8.03% of cuttings were found under control condition. The highest seed yields 709.09 kg ha-1 was obtained with BAU-Biofungicide treated cuttings and lowest seed yields 600.35 kg ha-1 was recorded under control treatment.

  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.

  Bion 50 WG (Benzothiodiazole), Tilt-250 EC (Propiconazole) and Amistar (Azoxystrobin) either alone and some of their combinations were evaluated against leaf blight/spot (Bipolaris sorokiniana) development and yield of wheat. All the treatments significantly reduced leaf spot reaction of wheat over untreated control. But Bion in combination with Amistar resulted significantly highest reduction of leaf spot reaction of wheat (p = 0.05) against all the tested pathotypes inoculated at flag leaf stage. In the field, Bion reduced leaf spot severity at heading and flowering stage in 2000-2001 and at hard dough stage in 2001-2002. Number of grains/ear not significantly increased by treating seeds with Bion though 1000-grain weight is significantly increased (p = 0.05) in 2000-2001 by Bion. Statistically higher grain yield was obtained from the experimental plot by treating seeds with Bion and Amistar. Bion resulted 53.33% higher grain yield in compare to untreated control.

  The efficacy of three fungicides viz. Tilt 250 EC, Bavistin, Pencozeb and botanicals viz. Allium sativum (clove), Nigella sativa (seed), Lawsonia alba (leaf) and Cymbopogon citratus (oil) were evaluated for leaf blight (Bipolaris sorokiniana) and grain yield of wheat cv. Kanchan under field condition. All the fungicides showed significant effect in controlling leaf blight of wheat cv. Kanchan. The highest reduction of the disease was recorded in plots that received Tilt 250 EC (0.1%) followed by Pencozeb (0.2%). Maximum grain yield of 3.89 t/ha with the gross margin of US$ 881.24/ha which 22.80% increase over the control was obtained by using Tilt which was followed by Pencozeb (10.01%). Among botanicals, leaf extract of Lawsonia alba resulted an increase of gross margin of US$ 731.78/ha which is 1.98% increase over the untreated control. Tilt 250 EC, Bavistin, Pencozeb and Lawsonia alba showed 13.16, 3.71, 9.31 and 8.39 BCR, respectively, while others resulted negative response.
