  An experiment was conducted to find out a suitable banana (Ranginsagar and Sabari) based intercrop combination of potato and mustard in the research field of Institute of Biological Science of Rajshahi University, Rajshahi-6205, during Rabi season of 2003-2004. Average over the two years, it revealed that the highest yield of banana was observed in Ranginsagar + potato (64.72 t ha-1) and the lowest in sole mustard (1.92 t ha-1). Combinations of Ranginsagar + potato intercropping showed better performance than other combination and sole crop in respect of gross return (Tk. 735219 ha-1), net return (Tk. 359794 ha-1) and benefit cost ratio (1.95). The highest land equivalent ratio (LER) was 1.82 in Ranginsagar + Potato followed by Sabari + potato (1.79) and the lowest in Sabari + mustard (1.60). The economic return was more in intercropping than all sole crops.

  Sero-monitoring of peste des petits ruminants (PPR) in 750 goats and 500 cattle were studied 15 different districts of Bangladesh. This study was undertaken with a view to evaluate the serum antibody level against PPR virus in goats, determination of level of PPR antibodies in large ruminants, and finally to determine the risk of goat population to PPR based on age. The experiment was conducted at the Virology Laboratory of Bangladesh Livestock Research Institute (BLRI), Savar, Dhaka. In most districts, the antibody level against PPR Virus (PPRV) in goats varied between 4-98% with an average 49.33% and only 3-10% was found positive against rinderpest in C-ELISA The highest level of antibody against PPRV was found in Hill tracts (98%) and the lowest in Pabna (4%). In terms of Rinderpest (RP) antibody as being detected by C-ELISA, it was observed that the sera collected from Jessore, Faridpur and Tangail showed very low levels of antibody, which varied between 3-10%. The results from the examination of cattle sera from four selected areas of Bangladesh showed that antibody level against PPRV varied from 17.64-36.84% with an average 24.67% and 0-26.31% found positive against RP in C-ELISA. So the present findings are the indication of future problem in proper evaluation of rinderpest vaccination programme in Bangladesh particularly with low sero-conversion in vaccinating herds as they have already been sensitized by PPRV.

  A field experiment was conducted to investigate the effect of four different number of seedling hill -1 viz., 2, 3, 4 and 5 and five different culm cutting height viz., 5, 10, 15, 20 cm and no cutting (control) on rice green fodder, hay and seed yield of transplant aman rice cv. Binadhan 4. Results revealed that the green fodder yield increased with the decreasing cutting height. The highest (4.55 t ha -1) and the lowest (2.75 t ha -1) green fodder yields were obtained from cutting at 5 and 20 cm, respectively. Identically the highest green fodder yields (3.03 and 2.99 t ha -1) were found by 5 and 4 seedling hill-1 treatments. The highest hay yield was obtained from 20 cm cutting height and 5 seedling hill -1. Plant height was positively related to cutting height, the highest (141.38 cm) and the lowest (117.67 cm) plant height at harvest were due to control and cutting at 5 cm treatments, respectively. Seed yield decreased with the decreasing cutting height. The highest and the lowest seed yields were obtained from control and cutting at 5 cm, respectively. The highest seed yield was found in 3 seedling hill -1.

  Present study assayed the toxicity effect of ethanolic leaf and seed extract of Cassia alata and found promising activity. From the probit transformation of resulting mortality data we got LC50 values of 4.31 ppm (μg mL-1) for seed and 5.29 ppm for leaf extract. Seed extract explored potent cytotoxicity similar to the standard gallic acid (LC50 = 4.53 ppm). From the antibacterial and MIC data it was evident that seed extract gave least activity against the tested bacteria whereas leaf extract deserved promising antibacterial activity.

  The experiment was carried out to investigate the effect of (a) three seedling ages viz. 21, 28 and 35 days and (b) four seedling raising techniques viz. normal wet, modified wet, floating and modified dapog on the yield and yield components of transplant aman rice cv. Binadhan 4. Except the number of non-effective tillers hill-1, weight of 1000-grains, harvest index and other characters were significantly influenced by both seedling ages and seedling raising techniques. Besides these, straw and biological yield showed non significant results in respect of seedling ages. The interaction between seedling ages and seedling raising techniques had significant effect on number of total tillers hill-1, number of effective tillers hill-1, grain, straw and biological yield.

  The aim of the present study was to investigate the antimicrobial and cytotoxic activities of five newly synthesized ferrocene based complexes [Mn(Fcd(COO)2), A], [Co(Fcd(COO)2), B], [Ni(Fcd(COO)2), C], [Cu(Fcd(COO)2), D] and [Zn(Fcd(COO)2), E]. The maximum antibacterial (at the concentration 100 μg disc-1) and antifungal (at the concentration 200 μg disc-1) activities were shown by the manganese complex A followed by cobult complexe B. The minimum activities were shown by zinc complexe E. The minimum inhibitory concentration of the complexes was determined against four pathogenic bacteria Bacillus subtilis, Bacillus megaterinum, Escherichia coli and Shigella shiga and the values of complex A were found between 16-32 μg mL-1. Brine shirmp bioassay lethality was carried out for cytotoxicity measurements of the complexes and the LC50 values were calculated after probit transformation of the resulting mortality data. Among the five complexes manganese complex A was showed highest cytotoxic effect which is indicative of its probable effect on cancer cell lines.

  Two varieties, Local-1 and Local-2 of papaya (Carica papaya L.) were analyzed at four maturity stages (green, mature, ripen and rotten) to obtain a comparative information on their nutritional parameters such as pH, moisture, ash, TTA protein, lipid, carbohydrate, free sugar, reducing sugar, carotene, riboflavin, thiamin, ascorbic acid, calcium, sodium, magnesium, potassium, iron and phosphorus content. The nutrient composition of papaya flesh was found to vary at different maturation stage. The pH, moisture content increases gradually with advancement of maturity in healthy papaya but decreases at rotten stage. The ash, TTA and fiber content was found to be maximum in mature stages and gradually deceases from ripen stage to rotten stage. The results on carbohydrate shown that ripe papaya is a good source of carbohydrate (23.5±0.04 g %) but the content decreases in rotten stage. The concentration of protein, lipid, riboflavin and thiamine are extremely low in ripe papaya. The free sugar, reducing sugar and starch content gradually increases up to ripen stage but decreases at rotten stage. Ripe papaya is a very rich source of vitamin A and vitamin C but their concentrations decrease abruptly at rotten stage. The minerals such as calcium, sodium, magnesium, potassium and phosphorus content of papaya flesh gradually increases with the advancement of maturity whereas the increasing level of iron declines at ripen stages.

  The study estimates the growth rates of frozen food, shrimp and fish export and instability of export earnings. The study evaluates the export marketing of frozen food, shrimp and fish by using time series aggregated data from the year of 1972-73 to 2003-04. The growths of frozen food were 57, 4 and 9% during period I, II and III, respectively. The export growth rate of shrimp was 54% in period I and 14 and 10% in the period II and III, respectively. The overall estimated shrimp export growth was 22%. The growth rates of fish export earning during period I, II and III were 6, 6 and 7%, respectively. The negative fluctuations in frozen food were more deep during 1974-75 (-67%), 977-78 (19%) and 1980-81(14%). The large positive deviations were observed during 2002-03 (52%), 973-74 (28%) and 1978-79 (13%). The negative fluctuation of shrimp export earnings more deep during 1974-75 (-65%), 977-78 (-20%) and 2001-02 (-14%) and positive deviations were in 2002-03 (53%), 973-74 (25), 976-77 and 2000-01 (15%) and 1978-79 (13%). The positive fluctuations of fish export earnings were in 1973-74 (64%), 985-86 (61%) and 1975-76 (54%) and negative fluctuations in the year 1976-77 (-85%), 984-85 (-46%) and 2001-02(-27%). The contribution of shrimp sector to our total export earnings was 5% in 2003-04 and insignificant share of only 0.84% in the year 1972-73. It was revealed that the present circumstances of this sector demands different institutional supports desperately from different angles to enhance the marketing activities and to strengthen the competitive position in the international market with a view to ensuring more contribution to our economy from the aforementioned.

  An experiment was carried out to assess the performance of Indian Ranner (IR), Khaki Campbell (KC), Zending (Z) ducks in an integrated duck-cum-fish farming system for a period of 15 months. Two hundred- seventy number 90-days-old duckling of Indian Runner, Khaki Campbell and Zending ducks fed (115g/duck day–1) on a formulated feed containing 18.41% crude protein and 2720.50 ME (kcal kg–1) of energy for grower ration and 16.68% crude protein and 2637.00 ME (kcal kg–1) of energy for layer ration. The results showed that the three genotypes were almost similar in body weight gain, mortality, egg production, feed conversion and egg weight (P>0.05). In respective of breed, egg production (nos./ duck) was inversely correlative (r = -0.33; P<0.001) with fish production (kg/duck). The total income from egg, fish, Spent duck and net profit per duck were almost similar in three breeds (P>0.05).
