  Characterization was done with fourteen exotic varieties of potato (Solanum tuberosum) namely Mondial, Granola, Cardinal, Ailsa, Petronese, Morene, Diamant, Cleopetra, Binella, Dheera, Multa, Kufri Sindhuri, Heera, Chamak and a local check (Lal Pakri) under Bangladesh condition. The tuber skin color of Mondial, Granola, Ailsa, Petronese, Morene, Diamant, Binella, Dheera, Multa, Heera and Chamak were white to light yellow, while Cardinal, Kufri Sindhuri, Cleopetra were red. The tuber shape were round in Granola, Morene and Kufri Sindhuri; elongate in Mondial, Ailsa and Diamant and oval in rest of the exotic potato varieties. The plant traits were spready and green in color with no flowering habit except variety Chamak. The yield ranged of exotic varieties were 19.44 to 46.67 ton per hectare. Variety Ailsa produced the maximum yield (46.67 t ha-1) which was followed by Cardinal and Mondial.

  The arsenic status of some selected soils was determined in ten thanas of four arsenic affected districts of Bangladesh. Thirty soil samples taking three from each of 10 thanas representing 4 districts viz. Gopalganj, Faridpur, Rajbari and Madaripur of Bangladesh were collected. The soils were collected from 3 depths viz. 0-15, 15-30 and 30-45 cm from each location. The arsenic content in soils of Gopalganj, Faridpur, Rajbari and Madaripur districts ranged from 3.96-25.09, 0-38.67, 1.32-36.99 and 1.32-38.19 ppm, respectively. Out of 30 samples, arsenic content was noticed for 21 samples at 0-15 cm depth (1.98-46.09 ppm), 26 samples at 15-30 cm depth (1.98-51.73 ppm) and 27 samples at 30-45 cm depth (1.98-54.05 ppm). Nine samples at 0-15 cm, 4 samples at 15-30 cm and 3 samples at 30-45 cm were free from arsenic contamination. On the other hand, 7 samples at 0-15 cm depth, 6 samples at 15-30 cm depth and 4 samples at 30-45 cm depth were found to be slightly arsenic contaminated. Correlation study of arsenic contents of soils was done with some soil properties viz. sand, silt and clay contents, soil pH, EC and organic matter status. Results showed that arsenic content correlated significantly with different soil properties.

  The soil samples were collected at different depths from 48 locations at 16 thanas under 7 districts. The soils were silt loam and silty clay loam in texture. The pH of the soils varied from 4.9- 7.9, 4.9-8 and 5.0-7.9 at D1 D2 and D3 depths, respectively. The highest pH value of 8.0 was found at Saramongal from Rajair thana under Madaripur district at D2 depth. On the basis of 0-45 cm depth, an average pH values for 7 districts can be placed in the following order: Gopalgonj > Rajbari > Madaripur > Faridpur > Moulavibazar > Habigonj > Sylhet. Most of the soils were slightly alkaline in reaction. The organic matter content in soils ranged from 0.69-2.45%, 0.51 - 2.73%, 0.89 -2.83%, 0.83 - 2.56%, 0.55 - 1.98%, 0.51 - 2.00% and 0.55 - 2.45% in Gopalgonj, Faridpur, Rajbari, Madaripur, Moulavibazar, Habigonj and Sylhet districts, respectively. The highest organic matter (2.83%) was found in Tipuragram at Rajbari Sadar thana under Rajbari distirct at D1 depth (0 - 15 cm) and the lowest organic matter (0.51%) was found in Pitua at Nabigonj thana under Habigonj district and Deura in Faridpur district at D3 depth (30 - 45 cm). The EC value of Gopalgonj, Faridpur, Rajbari, Madaripur, Moulavibazar, Habigonj and Sylhet district soils ranged from 1.73 - 2.83, 1.24 - 3.84, 1.45 - 2.01, 1.30 - 3.52, 0.27 - 0.90, 0.37 - 0.41and 0.26 - 1.17 dsmG‾1 , respectively. An average EC values for 7 districts can be placed in the following order: Gopalgonj > Madaripur > Faridpur > Rajbari > Moulavibazar > Sylhet > Habigonj. Most of the soils were alkaline in nature and it may be reduced through the application of Gypsum and other practices.

  An experiment was conducted to study the effect of fertilizers and pesticides on the growth and yield of BRRI Dhan 30 rice. There were twelve treatments T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, T6, T7, T8, T9, T10, T11 and T12. The rates of different fertilizers were 90 kg N from urea, 50 kg P2 O5 from TSP, 40 kg K2 O from MP, 10 kg S from gypsum, 4 kg Zn/ha from ZnSO4 .H2 O. The recommended doses of diazinon (Di) and sodium arsenite pesticides as 1680 and 500 ml/ha, respectively were used in the experiment. All the treatments significantly increased the grain and straw yields of BRRI Dhan 30 rice over control except T12 which showed a decreasing trend. The combined application of N, P, K, S, Zn and Di produced the highest grain yield (4773 kg/ha) which was 47.31% increase over control. On the other hand, single application of As decreased the yield (3088 kg/ha) by 4.69% over control.

  An experiment was conducted in laboratory condition maintaining the ratio of plant stems and water at the range of 1:5, 1:10, 1:15, 1:20, 1:25 and 1:30 at a temperature 30°C. The best retting phenomena was observed at the ratio of 1:20. After the completion of retting in each ratio, fibre properties were measured and the best fibre was obtained at the ratio of 1:20. In the Retting top and bottom parts of the jute plants separately and malleting 40 cm of the basal part improved the fibre quality and showed more or less uniform retting. The cutting was completely eliminated through malleting and separately retting top and the bottom parts of the jute plants.

  Seed samples having different levels of black pointed seed were used in this study. Lowest leaf spot severity (3.36) was found in plots where best seed was sown in the field. Increased number of black pointed seed in the seed sample resulted in formation of higher number of seeds having black point infection in the field. Highest number (82.13 %) of grade-0 (apparently healthy) seeds were obtained from the plots where best seed was used. Formation of black pointed free grain in the field did not differ significantly up to seed sample containing 10 % black pointed seed. Laboratory test revealed that seeds of grade-5 yielded 74.55 % higher incidence of Bipolaris sorokiniana over seeds of grade-0. Incidence of Fusarium also increased with increase in black point infection but incidence of Alternaria tenuis and Curvularia lunata did not show any specific relation with severity of black point infection in grain. Higher incidence of B. sorokiniana was yielded from the embryo end of both seeds of grade-0 (25.30 %) and grade-1 (2.50 %) than the endosperm.
