  An experiment was conducted to study the effect of planting time, mulch and irrigation on growth and yield of garlic at the Horticulture Farm of Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh during the period from October 1998 to March 1999. The objective of the work was to find out appropriate planting time and types of mulch and irrigation to get maximum yield of garlic. There were five planting time viz. October 25, November 9, November 25, December 8 and December 23 and seven types of mulch and irrigation treatments viz. Straw, water hyacinth, black polyethylene, transparent polyethylene, 10 days interval irrigation, 20 days interval irrigation and control (no mulch and no irrigation ) were used as the experimental treatments. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Complete Block Design with three replications. With the delay in planting time from Oct. 25 yield was chronologically reduced in later plantings. The highest bulb yield (3.9 t ha-1 ) was recorded when planting was done on October 25 which was statistically identical to November 9 planting (3.5 t ha-1 ). The lowest yield was obtained from December 23 (2.3 t ha-1 ) planting. Water hyacinth mulching yielded (4.27 t ha-1 ) best which was statistically identical with straw mulch (3.97 t ha-1 ). The lowest yield was obtained from white polyethylene mulch and control. Irrigation at 20 days interval showed better performance over irrigation at 10 days interval and control.

  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.

  An experiment on the inserted contact grafting in mango (Mangifera indica L.) was conducted to find out the best time and age of rootstock for grafting in best varieties of mango under Bangladesh condition. The experiment indicated that inserted contact grafting could be more successful in 16 May operations. The highest percentage of survived grafts (56.82%) was recorded in 16 May operation 120 days after the detachment of the grafts from the mother plant requiring less time (70.22 days) for graft success when grafted with 2-year-old rootstock in cv. Amrapali (BARI Aam–3).

  Embryogenic calli were initiated from mature seed scutellum (MSS) of salt tolerant Indica rice Cvs. BRRI dhan-40, BRRI dhan-41 and Binnatoa on LS 2.5 and MS 2.5 culture media supplemented with 2.5 mg L -1 2, 4-D. Among the Cvs. used, high frequency callusing from mature seed scutellum was observed in Cv. BRRI dhan-40 (74%) on MS 2.5 medium and Cv. BRRI dhan-41 (79%) on LS 2.5 medium, respectively. In terms of plant regeneration, although all Cvs. responded well on the both RM-1 and RM-2 media but the response of different cultivar varied from medium to medium. The highest frequency (69%) of plant regeneration was observed in the variety Binnatoa on RM-1 medium. In contrast, Cv. BRRI dhan-41 produced the highest percentage (79%) of plant whilst plant regeneration frequency was 75% in Cv. Binnatoa on RM-2 regeneration medium, respectively. Embryogenic callus formation and efficient plant regeneration were influenced by culture media and plant genotype.
