  The present study was carried out to observe the effect of different mulches on the production of potato (Solanum tuberosum). Treatments with mulches-rice straw, water hyacinth and wastage of rice straw significantly increased potato yield over control. Salinity was found to be higher in the treatment without mulch than different mulch materials during the experimental period. From the average of two years results, it was found that highest yield (23.02 ton ha-1) and gross margin (TK69425) obtained by rice straw mulch followed by water hyacinth mulch with yield 22.23 ton ha-1 and gross margin TK 66084. The benefit cost ratio was found to be highest (2.51) in rice straw followed by water hyacinth (2.46), wastage of rice straw (2.08) and no mulch (1.69). The results indicate that potato could be cultivated in saline soil by minimizing salinity with application of mulch.

  Induced mutation holds promise for effective improvement and have high potential for bringing about genetic variability. Regenerable calli of four rice varieties were exposed to 0 to 6 Gy of gamma rays to determine their effect on growth and plant regeneration capability. Both growth and regeneration capacity decreased with increasing levels of gamma rays ; however, plant regeneration capacity was more sensitive to gamma rays than growth. The 50% inhibition dose for callus growth and plant regeneration was approximately 5.0 Gy of gamma radiation in Binnatoa variety. But in remaining varieties 4.0 Gy was recorded for callus growth and 2.0 Gy for regeneration.

  A study was conducted to evaluate the pond and well water quality at Matiranga Upazilla under very remote areas of Khagrachari Hill District of Bangladesh. The chemical analyses of water included pH, EC, total cations (Ca++, Mg++, Na+, K+, Zn++, Cu++, Mn++, Fe+++, As+++, P+5 and B+3), total anions (CO3--, HCO3- SO4--, NO3- Cl-, TDS, SAR, SSP, RSC and hardness (HT). pH values (6.01-7.17) indicated that the waters were slightly acidic to neutral. Waters contained Ca++, Mg++, Na+, K+, HCO3- and Cl- predominantly along with Zn++, P+5 and B+3 in lesser amounts. Mn++, Cu++ and Fe+++ were found trace to very little amount. As+3 and SO4-- were found trace. TDS and SAR values indicated that all water were under "freshwater" and "excellent" class respectively. SSP of most waters were under "good" "permissible" and "doubtful" class. SAR and EC categorized the waters as C1-S1. All waters were found under "soft" class regarding hardness with "suitable" RSC. Based on As+3, Fe+3, Mn++, Zn++, SO4--, NO3- and Cl- all waters were within the "safe" limit for drinking.

  The experiment was conducted to evaluate the impact of tillage and nitrogen on soil physical properties such as bulk density, particle density, soil moisture, porosity, air filled porosity. Soil physical properties were significantly influenced by different tillage practices but in case of nitrogen treatments there were no significant variation. Bulk density was significantly increased with soil depth. The highest bulk density of 1.46 cm-3 was recorded under no tillage at 20-30 cm soil depth. Maximum particle density (2.53 g cm-3) was measured by 10 cm deep tillage (T1) at 10-20 cm soil depth. Soil porosity was statistically influenced by different tillage operations. The maximum soil porosity of 64.68% was observed by 20 cm deep tillage (T2) at 0-10 cm soil depth. The soil moisture significantly decreased with soil depth. The highest moisture content of 44.43% was recorded under deep tillage (T2) at 0-10 cm soil depth and lowest 23.53% was found by control (T0) at 20-30 cm depth. Maximum air filled porosity (15.66%) was recorded in deep tillage (T2) at 20-30 cm soil depth. High air filled porosity indicated low moisture content in soil.

  An experiment was conducted during the period from November 2001 to April 2002 to determine the optimum irrigation time and nitrogen level of wheat. Highest grain yield (3.71 t ha-1) was obtained with three irrigations at crown-root initiations (CRI)+maximum tillering (MT)+grain filling (GF) stages which was identical with two irrigations at crown-root initiations (CRI)+maximum tillering (MT) stages and at crown-root initiations (CRI)+grain filling stages. The highest grain yield (3.61 t ha-1) was obtained from 120 kg N ha-1 which was followed by 100 kg N ha-1 treatment and the lowest grain yield (2.81 t ha-1) was recorded under 40 kg N ha-1 treatment. No significant effect was observed on yield due to interaction of irrigation and nitrogen level. The highest grain yield (4.33 t ha-1) was found by three irrigation at crown-root initiations (CRI)+maximum tillering (MT)+grain filling (GF) with 120 kg N ha-1. However, grain yield of wheat was significantly influenced by irrigation and nitrogen level but not due to interaction of irrigation and nitrogen level.

  An experiment was conducted to evaluate the effect of tillage practices and nitrogen rates on the %N content in grain, straw and N uptake by grain, straw, plants in rice var. Binasail. The %N content in grain, N uptake by grain and total N uptake by plant were significantly influenced by different tillage practices. Maximum N content in grain (1.12%), N uptake by grain (34.54 kg ha-1) and total N uptake by plant (43.23 kg ha-1) were observed in 20 cm deep tillage treatment (T2). Minimum N content in grain (1.09%), N uptake by grain (26.87 kg ha-1) and total N uptake by plant (35.41 kg ha-1) were found in no tillage treatment (T0). The nitrogen content (%) in grain and straw, N uptake by grain and straw and total N uptake by plant were also significantly influenced by different rates of nitrogen application. The maximum N content in grain (1.17%) was recorded in no nitrogen (N0) and the minimum (1.04%) with the application of 105 kg N ha-1 (N3). The interaction effect of tillage operations and nitrogen application on %N content in grain, straw and total N uptake (kg ha-1) by plant found to be significant.
