  The experiment was conducted at the Agronomy Field Laboratory, Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh, Bangladesh during July to December 2001 to investigate the effect of Cultivar and spacing on weed infestation and performance of transplant Aman rice. Thirteen weed species belonging to eight families infested in the experimental plots. Cultivar, spacing and their interaction significantly affected weed density and weed dry weight. Cultivar significantly influenced all the crop characters studied with the exception of panicle length. Sonar Bangla 1 produced the highest grain and straw yields and Nizershail the lowest. Spacing had a significant effect on all the crop characters except panicle length and 1000-grain weight. The highest grain yield was obtained from the spacing 15x 25cm and the lowest grain yield was produced by the widest spacing 25 x 35cm. Sonar Bangla 1 produced the highest grain yield in 15x25 cm spacing and Nizershail produced the lowest yield in 25 x 35cm spacing.

  Six treatments viz. farmer’s seed (uncleaned and unwashed), farmer’s clean seed, farmer’s washed seed, farmer’s clean and washed seed, garlic (1:10) and Vitavex-200 @ 0.3% treated seeds were used for studying their comparative effect on incidence of seedling diseases and grain yield of rice. Seed cleaning followed by washing decreased the seedling diseases viz. brown spot, blast, bakanae, foot rot and seedling blight as of seed treatment with garlic and Vitavex-200. Use of healthy seedling increased the grain yield up to 21.4% over the use of seedling as farmer’s normally use. Use of healthy seedlings has increased the benefit of Tk.4132.28 ha–1 over the use of normal seedling as farmers normally use.

  The effect of foliar application with 300, 600 and 900 ppm IAA was investigated on yield and yield contributing characters of two varieties of mungbean (BARI 2 and BARI 4). IAA at 600 ppm significantly increased the number of seeds/plant, seed yield plant-1, seed yield (t ha 1) and 1000-seeds weight. The variety BARI 4 manifested better performance than BARI 2. BARI 4 plants treated with 600 ppm of IAA had the highest pod length, number of seeds, seed yield/plant and seed yield (t ha-1 ). So, the plants treated with IAA at 600 ppm performed better than those of control and other treatments.

  IAA at 600 ppm significantly increased plant height, number of branches/plant, number of leaves/plant, total dry matter, leaf area, leaf area index and crop growth rate. Significant varietal differences were observed in terms of the morpho-physiological characters studied. The variety BARI 4 (V1) manifested better performance than BARI 2 (V2). V1 plants treated with 600 ppm of IAA had the highest plant height, number of leaves, total dry matter, crop growth rate, number of branches, leaf area, leaf area index and relative growth rate. So plants treated with IAA at 600 ppm performed better than those of control and other treatments.

  The experiment was conducted to find the effect of different cultivars and time of nitrogen application on the growth and yield of separated tillers of transplant aman rice. Tillers of three rice cultivars (BRRI Dhan 32, BR 23 and BR 22) and five timings of nitrogen application were used as treatments. The individual effect of var. BR 23 and the three equal splits of application of nitrogen as basal, at early tillering and at panicle initiation stages gave the best results on plant height, no. of tillers hill-1, no. of leaves hill-1, leaf area index, no. of grains panicle-1, weight of 1000 grains, grain yield, straw yield, biological yield and harvest index having 121.21 and 122.54 cm, 9.10 and 9.26, 36.72 and 39.91, 4.92 and 4.68, 118.60 and 118.50, 23.98 and 22.33 g, 4.55 and 4.79 t ha-1, 6.15 and 6.60 t ha-1, 10.70 and 11.40 t ha-1, 42.62 and 41.24 %, respectively. The interaction effect of var. BR 23 and T2 was the highest on these parameters. Rice var. BR 23 and three splits of nitrogen application may be used for increasing growth and yield of separated tillers of transplanted aman rice.

  The experiment was conducted to know the effect of seed treatment on the incidence of seed-borne fungal diseases and on production of seed yield of okra. The lowest germination (95.0%) was recorded in unclean farmer’s seeds; while highest germination (99.0%) was recorded in Vitavax-200 treated seeds followed by clean apparently healthy seeds (98.5%). Seed-borne fungal diseases of okra in the field, five diseases viz. Foot and root rot, Anthracnose and die-back, Cercospora leaf spot, Corynespora leaf spot and leaf blight, respectively caused by Fusarium oxysporum, Colletotrichum dematium, Cercospora abelmoschi, Corynespora cassiicola and Macrophonina phaseolina were recorded. The incidence of five seed-borne diseases have been found to be reduced by the use of seeds treated with Vitavax-200 and clean apparently healthy seeds. Vitavax–200 treated seeds as well as clean apparently healthy seeds increased the seed yield by 21.62 and 15.31%, respectively, over the unclean farmers’ seeds.
