  A pot experiment was conducted for screening of ten drought tolerant groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) genotypes. Ten genotypes were collected from the International Crop Research Institute for Semi Arid Tropics (ICRISAT), India. Plants were grown in Hoagland solution and by adding 4% polyethylene glycol-6000, water stress was imposed. As index of drought tolerance, change in free proline content and stability of nitrate reductase activity in the leaves of water stressed plants was monitored. In the drought tolerant plant, the increase in proline over the control varied from 5.44 to 7.16 fold and the decrease in nitrate reductase activity ranged from 4.97 - 6.69%. On the basis of increase in proline accumulation and degree of stability of nitrate reductase, 3 genotypes were selected as drought tolerant and they were 3203, ICGV-93269 and ICGV-93232.

  Combined effects of Lambda cyhalothrin and W. calendulacea plant extracts (synergists) were tested against house fly M. domestica L. in methanol. Lambda cyhalothrin offered synergism when used with W. calendulacea extract. It was observed that the plant extract behaves synergism from 1:1 to 1:5 ratios and above.

  Azaron or 1, 2, 4-trimethoxy-5-(1-propenyl) Benzene,  isolated form the rhizome extract of Acorus calamus was screened for antifungal activity against three phytopathogenic fungi viz., Macrophomina phaseolina (Maubl) Ash by, Curvularia lunata Wakker Boedijn and Alternaria alternata (Fr.) Kedissler. This compound completely inhibited the growth (100%) of all the tested fungi at 400 μg mL-1.

  An on-farm experiment was conducted to know the performance of Leaf Color Chart (LCC) based N application in rice compared with conventional farmers practice during aman season 2002 in nine farmer ’ s field at Gazipur districts of Bangladesh. Nine rice genotypes were included in the experiment and each genotype was cultivated in each farmers plot. Basal application of fertilizer was made with P, K, S and Zn. Top dress of N was made according to the treatments. LCC based N application produced slightly higher but insignificant grain yield than conventional farmer’s N application practice. N use efficiency was much higher in LCC based N application. 19-37 kg Nha -1 was saved in LCC and it reduces disease and insect infestation in rice. It plays a positive role on environment by reducing the use of agrochemicals.
