  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.

  Genetic divergence of 35 sorghum (Sorghum bicolor L.) genotypes was estimated using D2 and principal component analysis for nine characters. The genotypes under study were grouped into 4 clusters. The cluster I contained the maximum number of genotype and the cluster III contained the minimum. The inter cluster distance in most of the cases were higher than the intra cluster distance indicating wider genetic diversity among the genotypes of different groups. The highest inter cluster distance between cluster III and IV followed by between III and V showing wide diversity among the groups.. The highest intra-cluster distance was observed in cluster IV and lowest in cluster II. Days to maturity, number of tiller/plant and 1000 grain weight showed maximum contribution towards total divergence among the genotypes.

  It is established that salinity disturbs mungbean plant growth by creating nutrient imbalance and disturbance in plant water relations. This study was undertaken to observe whether external application of K mitigates the harmful effect of salinity. Mungbean plant (var. BARI mung 3) was grown in pot at three levels of K viz. 14, 40 and 60 kg ha ha-1 under 0 and 75 mM NaCl saline conditions. Salinity decreased seriously relative water content and water retention capacity, while increased water saturation deficit and water uptake capacity. Salinity also decreased xylem exudation rate and leaf water potential. Application of higher amount of K improved the plant water relationship in mungbean plant. Salinity disturbed dry matter distribution in different plant parts as well decreased total dry matter. Similarly yield and yield contributing characters were also seriously affected by salinity, except number of seeds per pod. Application of different levels of potassium did not influence on dry matter production. However, yield and yield contributing characters were improved to some extent with the increasing levels of K. Salinity decreased significantly the uptake of N, P, K and Ca, while increased Na uptake several fold. Mg accumulation was unchanged due to salinity. K doses had no significant influence on nutrient uptake by mungbean plant, though the uptake of most of the nutrients showed an increasing tendency with the increased levels of K application. It was concluded that application of higher levels of K improves water relations as well as growth and yield of mungbean under mild level of saline conditions.

  The experiment was conducted in pot culture from November 1998 to March 1999 at the Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh. Eighteen B. campestris hybrids and their 6 parents were tested for saline tolerance. The genotypes were grown in earthen pots. Mixture of soil and cowdung in 3:1 ratio was the growth media. Sodium chloride was used as the sources of salt. Two salinity levels viz., 1.43 and 12.00 dS m1 EC were maintained. There were three replications in each treatment. The genotypes were grown up to maturity and the characters germination percentage, days to germination, plant height at 25, 35 and 45 days, days to flowering, plant height at harvest, days to maturity and seed yield/ plant were studied. The analysis of variance showed that variation due to salinity levels, genotypes and interaction between salinity levels and genotypes were significant for the experiment. Comparing the mean values of 12 dS m1EC with that of the control i.e., 1.43 dS m1EC it was observed that effect of higher salinity level on different characters was very sharp in the experiment. At higher salinity level germination percentage decreased, days to germination increased, plant height decreased, days to flowering and maturity increased and seed yield/plant decreased. It was further observed that effect of salinity was more prominent up to flowering stage then it was gradually decreased probably due to watering which was necessary to raise the plants. Heterosis was estimated over mid-parent and better parent. Out of 324 heterosis values, 54 were desirable and significant over mid-parent and 39 over better parent. On the basis of desirable and significant heterotic values over mid-parent the hybrids were scored for the characters germination percentage, days to germination, plant height at 25, 35 and 45 days and days to flowering and then ranked. On the basis of rank position the hybrids Sampad x M-395, M-91, x M-27, Dholi x M-27, M-395 x M-91, Dholi x M-395, M-18 x Sampad, M-91 x M-18, M-27 x Dholi and M-27 x M-91 were found to be promising against salinity.
