  The study was conducted in order to investigation the relationship between grain yield with the morphological parameters of five local and three modern aromatic rice varieties. The varieties Kataribhog, Radhunipagal, Chinigura, Badshabhog, Kalizera, BRRI dhan34, BRRI dhan dhan37 and BRRI dhan38 were transplanted. All the parameters varied significantly in different aromatic rice varieties. Among the aromatic rice varieties the highest grain yield was obtained from BRRI dhan34 which identically followed by Kataribhog. The highest plant height was observed in Chinigura which statistically similar to Kataribhog The highest number of fertile tillers hill-1 was observed in BRRI dhan37 and it was identically followed by Radhunipagal, Badshabhog, Chinigura, BRRI dhan38 and the lowest fertile tillers hill-1 was obtained from Kalizera which was statistically similar to Kataribhog. The highest number of grains panicle-1 was found in BRRI dhan34 and that was the lowest in BRRI dhan38. Maximum 1000 grain weight was observed in BRRI dhan38. In respect of yield BRRI dhan34 and Kataribhog are suitable for Dinajpur region in Bangladesh during T. aman season.

  An experiment was conducted to evaluate the performance of three modern rice varieties viz., BR1, BR14 and BR26 along with a local variety, namely, Hashikalmi grown under direct seeded and transplanted method. High yielding varieties produced significantly higher grain yield compared with local variety. A higher spikelet sterility was recorded for the local variety compared with modern varieties especially when grown under direct-seeded method. Methods of planting exerted a significant influence on the yield and yield attributes of aus rice. Transplanted rice gave higher yield than direct seeded rice for both local and high yielding varieties.

  A study was conducted to examine patterns of macro- and micro nutrient accumulation in corn grains in response to seven different levels of N amendments: no amendments, fertilizer (NH4NO3) at 100 and 200 kg N ha-1, stockpiled and rotted manure at 50 and 100 Mg ha-1 (wet weight) application. Results indicate that over the study periods manure application increased most of biomass macro- and micro nutrient concentrations. There was no significant positive relationship between grain yield and macro- and micro nutrient concentrations. Data showed at 11 t ha-1 yield level, corn grain would remove on average the following amounts of nutrient elements: N, 126.5 to 174.9; P, 31.9 to 35.2; K, 34.43 to 37.62; S, 12.21 to 14.96; Mg, 10.08 to 10.65; Ca, 0.81 to 0.97; Fe, 0.24 to 0.33; Zn, 0.20 to 0.23; Mn, 0.048 to 0.054; Cu, 0.027 to 0.042 kg ha-1, which are comparable to those reported in the literature: N, 120.8; P, 36.7; K, 44.7; S, 9.9; Mg, 14.4; Ca, 2.6; Fe, 0.33; Zn, 0.25; Mn, 0.045; Cu, 0.03 kg ha-1. These values, however, do not take into account the quality and availability of nutrient reserves already in the soil. Because of this limitation, soil testing should still be the cornerstone of all fertility programs. Removal rates can be used in conjunction with soil testing to estimate the depletion of macro- and micro nutrient reserves. These data are very useful in comparing the nutrient demands of different crops.

  The effects of intensive fertilization and cropping on micro nutrients content of soil, solution and plant samples were studied. The treatments selected for this study were control, N, NP, NS, NPK and NPKSZn. The samples were analyzed to see the concentration of Zn, Cu, and Mn. Application of N showed an increase only in available Fe and Mn over control. The long-term application of P (TSP) increased available, total and soil solution content of Zn, Cu, Fe and Mn and uptake by crops. Fe and Mn content of soil solution was high in wet period than in dry period while a reverse was noted in case of Zn and Cu.

  An experiment was conducted to study the effect of tillage practices and nitrogen rate on organic matter and total %N content in Soil. Tillage and nitrogen had significant positive impact on organic matter and nitrogen content in Soil. Maximum organic content (0.69%) was measured in no tillage treatment (T0) at surface layer and the highest total nitrogen content (0.163%) was recorded by 10 cm deep tillage (T1) at surface layer. Maximum organic matter content (0.63%) and total nitrogen (0.176%) was observed at surface layer with the application of 105 kg N ha-1. The interaction effect of tillage and nitrogen on organic matter content was not statistically significant. the highest organic matter content (0.71%) was measured in no tillage with higher rates of nitrogen (105 kg N ha-1). Maximum nitrogen content (0.181%) was found by T1N3 treatment at 0-10 cm depth.

  A pot experiment was conducted during November 2000 to March 2001 to find out the optimum fertilizer requirement of grafted tomato. Four levels of N, 4 levels of P, 4 levels of K, 2 levels of S and 1 kg sodium molybdate and 10 t ha–1 organic manure were applied in equal distribution to all these by using a selected set of 12 treatments. The highest tomato yield of 1459 g plant–1 was obtained with the application of 200 kg N, 120 kg P2O5, 80 kg K2O, 20 kg S ha–1, which was statistically similar with N150P120K80S20, N150P40K80S20, N100P120K80S10, N150P120K0S20, N150P80K80S20 and N150P120K120S20 treatments. Yield increased 694% over control. On economic point of view N150P40K80S20 treatment was the most suitable fertilizer dose for grafted tomato because it gave 605% higher yield over control.
