  Twenty-eight bred restored lines and four standard checks were screening for resistance to blast disease of rice during the T. aman and boro season. The breakout and severity of per cent leaf area diseased were recorded under natural infection. On the basis of disease intensity, three were highly resistant, 12 resistant, 16 were moderately resistant and 1 was moderately susceptible at T. aman season and at boro season 3 line s were found to be highly resistant, 8 resistant, 17 moderately resistant and 4 were moderately susceptible. Wide range of variation was observed regarding resistance among the entries. Variations were also found on the basis of season. Considering both seasons, the accession numbers 56, 57, 64, 66, 71 and 73 showed comparatively better performance against above mentioned rice disease.

  The experiment was conducted to examine the effect of rate and time of nitrogen application and their interaction on late transplant aman rice (cv. BR23) and comprised of four nitrogen rates and five timing of nitrogen application. Application of N-fertilizer @ 100 kg ha -1 produced the highest plant height, number of bearing tillers hill -1, panicle length, number of grains panicle -1, number of sterile spikelets panicle -1,1000-grain weight, grain yield, straw yield and biological yield which were similar to that of the plants fertilized with 80 kg N ha -1. Minimum values of the aforesaid parameters were observed in all plots when the crop was not fertilized with nitrogen. Nitrogen rate increased grain and straw yield up to the highest rate of nitrogen. The highest grain and straw yields were obtained from three equal split application of nitrogen at basal, early tillering and panicle initiation stages. Yield attributes like, number of total tillers hill -1, number of bearing tillers hill -1, panicle length, number of grains panicle -1, biological yield and harvest index were also increased in three equal split application compared to two split application of nitrogen. Interaction between rate and time of nitrogen application also significantly influenced the number of tillers hill -1, grain yield and harvest index. The highest grain yield obtained from the application of 100 kg N ha -1 in three equal splits at basal, early tillering and panicle initiation stages. Yield parameters were not significantly influenced by the interaction between rate and time of nitrogen application.

  Twenty-eight bred restored lines and four standard checks were screening for resistance to bacterial leaf blight (caused by Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae), sheath rot (caused by Sarocladium oryzae), sheath blight (caused by Rhizoctonia solani), during the t. aman and boro season. The breakout and severity of percent leaf/sheath area diseased were recorded under natural infection. On the basis of disease intensity, one breeding line was found moderately resistant, 13 were moderately susceptible and 13 were susceptible and 5 were highly susceptible to BLB at t. aman season and at boro season, 5 were highly resistant, 5 were resistant, 12 were moderately resistant and 9 were moderately susceptible to BLB. In case of sheath rot, 6 were moderately resistant, 26 were moderately susceptible and 2 susceptible in t. aman season. One line was resistant, 14 moderately resistant and 17 were moderately susceptible to sheath rot in boro season. At t. aman season, 29 lines were resistant, 3 were moderately susceptible and at boro season, all cultivars including checks were resistant to sheath blight. Considering both seasons, the accession numbers 56, 57, 64, 66, 71 and 73 showed comparatively better performance against above mentioned three major rice diseases.
