  An experiment was conducted to performance study of collected germplasm of garlic in different dates of planting at the Horticulture Farm of Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh during the period from October 1997 to April 1998. The objective of the work was to observe the performance of different local and exotic germplasm of garlic in different dates of planting and to get maximum yield of garlic. There were two planting time viz. October and November 30 and ten germplasm were Natore (G1), Dhaka, Keraniganj (G2), Syedpur (G3), Pabna (G4), Faridpur Tripple clove (G5), Jamalpur (G6), Faridpur Single clove (G7), Kishoreganj (G8), China (G9) and Australia (G10) 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 30 yield was reduced in later plantings. The highest bulb yield (8.56 t ha-1) was recorded when planting was done on October 30. The lowest yield was obtained from November 30 (3.96 t ha-1) planting. Germplasm G1 yielded (8.52 t ha-1) best followed by G2 (8.43), G7 (7.35) and G3 (7.29), respectively. The lowest yield (4.53) was obtained from Germplasm G8. Among 2 exotic germplasm (China and Australia) failed to form bulb. It may be concluded that early planting with local germplasm G1 and G2 is the best to get maximum yield of garlic.

  An experiment on the control of spiraling white fly (Aleurodicus dispersus Russel) by spraying detergent (wheel powder, Liver Brothers Ltd.) was conducted. Wheel powder, a cheap and readily available detergent in Bangladesh was sprayed to control the white fly. Wheel powder was sprayed in different concentration among which 10 g litre-1 of water and 15 g litre-1 of water were found more effective in controlling white fly. The concentration 20, 30 and 40 g litre-1 of water were found serious leaf burning, even total leaf dropping after 3rd spray.

  An experiment was conducted to study the effect of variety and different nursery conditions on the survivability of air-layers of two varieties of guava at the Germplasm Centre (GPC) of Fruit Tree Improvement Project, Department of Horticulture, Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh during the period from August 2001 to July 2002. Planting air-layer after detached from the mother plant and planted under different nursery conditions showed significant variation in success of air-layers. Open condition (both layers in poly bag and layers in situ) increased the percentage of survivability then under shade condition. Layers in situ (both shade and open condition) increased the number of shoots and leaves of the detached air-layers than layers in polybag. The highest percentage of survivability (100%) was observed from layers in situ under open condition which was statistically similar to layers in polybag under open condition.

  The experiment was carried out to study the shelf life of guava under different post harvest treatments. Qualities of fruits of different varieties decreased with the advancement of storage duration and most were found to lose their marketability at the later stage except Kazi and Swarupkathi. In case of wrapping materials, white and black perforated polythene bags were better in on season for retaining marketability of guava fruits as compared with other treatments. Considering combined effect of variety and wrapping materials, fruits of the Kazi showed the longer duration of marketability among 10 varieties with all treatments. Weight loss of different guava varieties increased with increasing storage duration. Variety Kazi showed the lowest percentage of weight loss. In case of wrapping materials, black and white perforated polythene bags gave minimum weight loss. Based on combined effect of variety and wrapping materials, the variety Kazi showed minimum weight loss among 10 varieties in all wrapping treatments.
