  An experiment was conducted to find out the effect of planting geometry and number of plants hill‾1 on the yield and quality of groundnut seeds. The experiment consisted of two planting geometry, viz., square planting (22.4 x 22.4 cm2) and rectangular planting (30.0 x 16.7 cm2) and three levels of number of plants hill‾1 viz., one, two and three plants hill‾1. Results showed that planting geometry affected the yield and yield components significantly. Rectangular planting gave significantly higher yield than did square planting system. But square-planting system gave significantly higher percentage of both protein and oil in seed. Two plants hill‾1 gave significantly higher yield than that of one plant and three plants hill‾1. Protein content was significantly affected due to the number of plants hill‾1 where two plants hill‾1 gave the maximum result (25.58%) which was insignificantly followed by that of three plants hill‾1 while oil content remained unaffected. The crops planted in rectangular system (30 x 16.7cm2) with two plants hill‾1 showed maximum pod yield (2.49 t ha‾1). Both protein (26.05%) and oil (50.06%) content was found higher with the crops of square planting system with two plants hill‾1. Therefore, the crops planted in rectangular system (30 x 16.7 cm2) with two plants hill‾1 emerged out as the promising practice for the improvement of yield in groundnut.

  A study was carried out with 33 Kenaf (Hibiscus cannabinus L.) genotypes of diverse origin to obtain information on genetic variability, heritability and correlation between fibre yield and various yield attributes. A substantial variability was observed among the genotypes for all 8 characters studied. The character dry stick weight per plant exhibited the highest phenotypic and genotypic coefficients of variation (20.30, 14.11) followed by dry fibre yield per plant (18.06, 12.05) and green weight per plant (17.25, 11.41). Heritability ranged from 98.36 for days to 50% flowering to 15.97% for node number per plant. High heritability coupled with high genetic advance was observed for days to 50% flowering and green weight per plant suggesting the dominant role of additive gene effects in the expression of these two characters. Correlation studies revealed that fibre yield was positively and significantly correlated with all the characters studied except node number per plant and days to 50% flowering. The character node number per plant was negatively associated with fibre yield. To enhance yield status of kenaf, the characters plant height, base diameter, green weight and stick weight could be used as selection criteria.

  Laboratory experiments were carried out to assess the quality of jute seeds collected from two different seed sources viz. Bangladesh Jute Research Institute (BJRI) while the other was farmer`s seed. Each source consisted of two species, namely Corchorus olitorius and Corchorus capsularis. Two varieties of olitorius viz. O-9897 and O-4 and two varieties of capsularis viz. CVL-1 and CVE-3 were included in the experiments. Quality of jute seed was better in BJRI source than farmer`s source. Quality of farmer`s seeds deteriorated mostly during processing and storing period. Poor quality of farmer`s seed was associated with higher content of inert matter and higher initial moisture content. Higher initial moisture content subsequently reduced germination and vigour of farmer`s seed. Due to accelerated ageing, olitorius seed deteriorated completely by three days and capsularis seed by seven days. Earlier deterioration of olitorius seed indicated its more vulnerability to poor storage environment. The varietal difference with in species was not remarkable in quality of jute seed.
