  A total of 201 Kasila broiler parent chicks were reared in an open-sided house from one-day to 22 weeks of age and growth performance and uniformity were monitored. The birds were maintained on quantitative feed restriction and their adaptability was evaluated. The experimental period was divided into three phases, phase I (day-old to 2 weeks), phase II (3 to 8 weeks) and phase III (9 to 22 weeks). The birds were provided with identical care and management like feeding, watering, ventilation, lighting, vaccination and disease control programme. Female chicks followed standard growth and feed consumption curves very closely while, male followed standard growth curve irregularly. The body weight of females at the end of 2nd, 8th and 22nd weeks were slightly higher but close to the standard while, males were little higher at 2nd & 22nd week but little lower at 8th week. Body weight gain of both females and males were lower during 3 to 8 weeks and higher during 9 to 22 weeks of age. Kasila females exhibited acceptable uniformity ranges during the study period except at 20th week. But the males showed lower trends in uniformity in most of the growth period. The birds were more prone to Mycoplasmosis during the growing period in spite of adopting preventive measures including medication. Kasila broiler parents are adaptable under Bangladesh condition if environmental stress could be minimized by taking appropriate measures and following breeder`s instructions.

  In the present experiment volume, concentration, mass movement and forward movement of semen of different genotypes of bulls relating to body weight, age, sexual maturity and season were evaluated. A total of 1422 semen samples from 22 different bulls of seven genotypes were included in this study from Central Cattle Breeding Station (CCBS), Shavar, Dhaka, Bangladesh. Among the seven genotypes of bulls, only the Friesian bulls gave the largest volume of semen (14.26 ± 0.19 mL), mass movement (4.87 ± 0.07 grade) and forward movement (61.29 ± 0.31%) of sperm. While considering the age, the bulls of 4 to 6 years old provided the highest semen volume (13.60 ± 0.18 mL), sperm concentration (1219.89 ± 10.72 million sperm mL-1), mass movement (4.66 ± 0.06 grade) and forward movement (61.34 ± 0.28%) of sperm. The highest volume (12.01 ± 0.22 mL) of semen, sperm concentration (1182.29 ± 14.30 million sperm mL-1), mass movement (4.40 ± 0.08 grade) and forward movement (58.74 ± 0.54%) of sperm was found in 3 years age of sexual maturity. In case of body weight, the maximum volume of semen (12.16 ± 0.22 mL) and forward movement (60.25 ± 0.45%) of sperm was obtained in the bulls of 400 to 600 kg body weight and the volume was maximize (12.15 ± 0.23 mL) in summer season. The findings suggested that Friesian produced better quality semen than other genotypes while 4 to 6 years age and >600 to 700 kg body weight of bulls performed better than other age and body weight groups. The summer season gave better quality semen than other seasons.

  Extract of neem (Azadirachta indica.L) seed was used to control the root knot nematode Meloidogyne javanica of sweet gourd. Extract of neem seed was found to be leathal to the juvenile of M. javanica compared to the extracts of bark and leaf of neem. Pot experiment with standard `S` concentration of all the extracts both in side drench and root-dipping methods appeared to give significant suppression in root galling, L2 and L3 population of the nematode. Identical response among the treatments with respect of plant growth characters was attributed to the synthesis of less toxic metabolites in the immature neem seeds used in the study. Positive correlation between gall number and eggmass indicated higher activity of the nematode allowing more adult females to develop with the production of increased number of eggmasses.
