  This study was conducted to examine the antifungal activity of some agriculture wastes (rice straw, maize and cotton wastes) against Rhizoctonia solani which is the causal agent of root rot of soybeans. For this target, it is logical start first to test the effects of different agriculture wastes extracts on the growth of R. solani under laboratory conditions, while most of the tested agriculture wastes extracts were exhibited antifungal activities against R. solani on Potato Dextrose Agar medium, so we applied them under greenhouse conditions. Furthermore, we determined the relation between the phenols, polysaccharides and protein content of the tested agriculture wastes and their antifungal activities. The results showed that maize wastes were the most active of all the tested wastes. It could be concluded from the obtained data the use of the tested biotic factors can be fruitful for controlling soybean rot root induced by R. solani.

  Paddy farming is one of the most important activities in Malaysian agriculture sector. However, the actual yields of paddy in some of the states were recorded far less than the potential yield of paddy. This study investigated the level of technical efficiency and the determinants of technical inefficiency for a sample of 230 paddy farmers operating in Peninsular Malaysia by using a trans-log stochastic production frontier. The mean level of technical efficiency for the selected paddy farmers was estimated at 85.8%, while the efficiency of the selected paddy farmers varied from 0.263 to 0.982. Inefficiency model indicated that the attendance at seminar or workshop significantly influenced technical inefficiency. The attendance at seminar or workshop had become an ace factor in increasing technical efficiency and in increasing yield per hectare. Hence, this study suggests that, the farmers should attend seminar or workshop of paddy farming from time to time. Encouraging paddy farmers to attend seminar or workshop can be achieved through offering incentives, subsidies in order to offset the opportunity cost of attendance at seminar or workshop.
