  The present research investigated the arsenic removal performance of prepared and commercial crab shell chitosan by adsorption filtration method. The ability of chitosan to remove arsenic from prepared arsenic contaminated solution was examined by Atomic Absorption Spectrometry (AAS). It is found that the saturation volume of prepared chitosan for l0 mg L-1 As3+/As5+ solution was 8.55 L and its arsenic removal capacity was 6244.2 mg kg-1. For commercial chitosan, the saturation volume for low and high molecular weight chitosan was 1.3 and 0.45 L and their arsenic removal capacity were 461.8 and 149.5 mg kg-1, respectively. The FT-IR study also confirmed that prepared chitosan’s arsenic removal capacity was higher than that of low and high molecular weight commercial chitosan due to the free amino group.

  The aim of the study is to detect the causes of vaccination failure in chickens against IBD in Bangladesh. One selected local field IBDV isolate, one commercially available live attenuated IBDV vaccine Bur-706 (RP) and one killed IBDV vaccine Gumboriffa (RP) were used in this study. A total of 100 chicks (Star brow) of 0,7,14,21 and 28 days age group (taking 20 in each group) were used for study the serologic response with a selected local field IBDV isolate. Similarly two other vaccines were vaccinated in each 100 chicks of similar age groups. After collection of sera weekly for upto six weeks from all groups of birds they were subjected to SNT, PHA test and AGPT against a specific IBDV antigen. Through this investigation it is found that the local field IBDV isolate demonstrate higher serologic response than that of commercially available live or killed IBDV vaccines. So, it may be concluded that the commercially available imported vaccines can not induce sufficient immune response to protect the chickens in Bangladesh. It may be due to degradation of the vaccine quality during transportation or in a new environmental condition or due to antigenic dissimilarities among the local field virus and the imported vaccines.

  The study describes the effect of 2 (two) commonly used inorganic fertilizers (Urea and TSP) on Anthocephalus chinensis (Lam.) Rich ex. walp. seedlings in the nursery of the Institute of Forestry and Environmental Sciences, University of Chittagong, Bangladesh with a view to standardize an optimum dose of inorganic fertilizers for raising quality seedlings. There were combinations of 16 treatments including a control one (NoPo). Seedlings were supplied 0, 75,175, 300 kg ha -1 of N and P of each in solution form in all possible combinations. Seedlings were evaluated for 13 weeks (90 days) in the nursery. Seedling mortality along with different growth parameters was measured. Different growth variables were also calculated. Seedling growth was in general markedly better for fertilized one in comparison to the control one. Nitrogen addition was found significantly promoting the collar dia. increment and total dry matter production of seedlings. Seedling mortality was observed as the nitrogen dose increases. Significant variation was not observed for different growth variables due to nitrogen doses. However, there was no significant variation in any parameters for different levels of phosphorus applied. The study suggests that application of 175 kg N ha -1 may be beneficial and also addition of 175 kg P ha -1 may boost the diameter, total dry matter production and leaf area of Anthocephalus chinensis on this type of soil (forest top soil collected from Chittagong University Campus).

  Laterite soil samples were studied to monitor their efficiency in removing arsenic from contaminated water by adsorption filtration method in laboratory condition. Prepared 10 mg L-1 solution of As3+/As5+ was passed through the six soil samples. At room temperature, a batch of three different samples adsorbs 1010, 925 and 932.5 mg kg-1 of arsenic and their removal efficiency were found to be 58.74, 65.32 and 65.39%, respectively. At 100 °C temperature, the three specimens studied show the adsorptivity of 54.40, 63.47 and 58.69%, while the respective amount adsorbed was calculated 848, 694 and 760 mg kg-1, respectively. Studied IR spectra of the sample of different temperature gradients revealed that the efficiency of a particular composite is high temperature sensitive and the most important and noticeable performance of soil samples is observed when the samples are treated at room temperature, this is the optimum temperature for these soil samples. Above this temperature the efficiency decline gradually.

  This study uses environment variables in Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) and examines the influence of environmental factors on efficiency of rice production in Bangladesh. Data was collected from Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics (BBS) and Bangladesh Meteorology Department Efficiency with and without environmental factors of three type of rice production (AUS, AMAN and BORO) are measured using data envelopment analysis. Efficiency of rice production which measured without environmental factors is explained by the environmental factors (Rainfall, Temperature and Humidity) using Tobit regression to weigh up the impact of these factors on rice production. Efficiency of BORO production with environmental factors is almost similar to the efficiency of production without environmental factors. Production efficiency of AUS and AMAN employing environmental factors is higher than that of without environmental factors. Humidity has a positive and significant effect on all types of rice production. Temperature has a negative impact on production efficiency, implying that global warming could be a cause for a decrease in efficiency of rice production. Rainfall has a positive impact only on BORO production.

  Background: This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of fenbendazole and piperazine citrate against ascariasis in naturally infected calves of Sylhet Dairy Farm, Sylhet, Bangladesh. The study included 84 calves of which 40 were naturally infected and randomly selected 20 on the basis of their weight and egg count. Twenty calves of 1-8 month old irrespective of sex infested with ascariasis were selected for this experiment and randomly divided into four equal groups (group A, B, C and D) where each group consisted of 5 calves and calves of group D were kept as control group. Two fenbendazole (7.5 mg kg-1 b.wt., orally) preparations (Globe Pharmaceuticals Ltd. and Techno drugs Ltd., Bangladesh) and piperazine citrate (220 mg kg-1 b.wt., orally) preparations (Ethical drugs Ltd., Bangladesh) were used for positive control of ascariasis as group A, B and C. Calves of group D was kept as control without giving any treatment. Objective: The present investigation was aimed to evaluate the effects of modern anthelmintics Fenvet® (Fenbendazole), Peraclear® (Fenbendazole) and Therazin® (Piperazine citrate) against ascariasis in calves irrespective to the species involved and their effects on the basis of EPG (eggs per gram) count, body weight of calves and hematological parameters like Total Erythrocyte Count (TEC), Hemoglobin (Hb%), Packed Cell Volume (PCV), Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR) and Total Leukocyte Count (TLC) were also included in this investigation. Results: Before trials (day 0), total egg count, blood samples and initial body weight were recorded. During the study period the fecal and blood samples were collected directly from rectum on 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th day and examined using McMaster fecal egg counting method. Body weights were recorded on day 0 and day 28 following the treatments. The results of the comparative efficacies of different anthelmintic of fenbendazole were 95.50 and 95.58%, followed by piperazine citrate 97.27%, respectively. McMaster fecal egg counting method discloses the percentage of prevalence of ascariasis 35.71% (1-2 months), 24.00% (3-4 months), 21.74% (5-6 months) and 18.18% (7-8 months), respectively. After treatment with fenbendazole and piperazine citrate, Total Erythrocyte Count (TEC), Hemoglobin (Hb) content and Packed Cell Volume (PCV) were increased significantly (p<0.01 and p>0.05) in calves but Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR) and Total Leukocyte Count (TLC) were decreased significantly (p<0.05 and p>0.01) in all treated calves and body weight was increased significantly (p<0.01) on day 28. The farm management practices along with results of the present study revealed the efficacy of multiple anthelmintic against gastrointestinal nematodes in calves. Additional detailed studies are required to clarify the current status of the efficacy of the anthelmintic widely used in different agro ecologies, animal species and livestock management systems in Bangladesh.

  The study was conducted to evaluate the efficacies of three different commercial anthelmintic containing triclabendazole and nitroxynil against fascioliasis in goat for a period of 28 days by using 20 goats. Among hundred goats, twenty goats were selected for this study which was suffering from liver fluke (Fasciola gigantica) infection and they were marked at the neck by tag. Twenty goats were randomly divided into four groups (A, B, C and D), where each group comprising of five goats. Goats of group A were treated with tablet fasinex (triclabendazole, Novartis Ltd, Bangladesh) orally at the dose rate of 12 mg kg–1 b.wt., group B were treated with acinex (triclabendazole, ACI Ltd, Bangladesh) orally at the dose rate of 12 mg kg–1 b.wt. and group C were treated with nitronex injection (nitroxynil, Renata Ltd, Bangladesh) subcutaneously at the dose rate of 10 mg kg–1 b.wt., Goats of group D was kept as infected control group without giving any treatment. A significant (p<0.01 and p>0.05) reduction of Egg Per Gram (EPG) count was found on 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th days of treated goats of group A, B and C respectively. The EPG count of control group were significantly (p<0.01 and p>0.05) increased 7 day onwards up to experimental period. Reduction of mean EPG on 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th day after treatment in group A, B and C were 81.48, 81.25 and 83.04%, respectively, whereas, in control group the mean EPG were 22.43%. Of the hematological parameters, TEC, Hb and PCV values were lower on day 0 but turned to increase (p<0.01 and p>0.05) on day 28 of the study. On the other hand, ESR and TLC were higher before treatment (day 0) but decreased significantly (p<0.01 and p>0.05) on day 28. The body weight was increased significantly (p<0.01 and p>0.05) after treatments in group A, B and C respectively except untreated control group D. This result may indicate that three different commercial anthelmintic contain triclabendazole and nitroxynil against fascioliasis in goat and nitroxynil have higher efficacies on Egg Per Gram (EPG), hematological parameters and body weight against fascioliasis in goat. Additional detailed studies are required to clarify the current status of the efficacy of the anthelmintic widely used in different agro ecologies, animal species and livestock management systems in Bangladesh.
