  Local chickens dominate poultry production in Bangladesh. For this reason, an investigation was conducted to determine the existing production system and production performance of native chicken in the Sylhet areas of Bangladesh. Data were collected from 180 households of 6 villages of Sylhet district in Bangladesh. In Sylhet mainly poor families, who have arrived from outside and are landless rear poultry. Most of the households (58.33%) had 0-15 chicken. Most of the families (75%) reared their chicken in combined house with duck. Materials used for housing were similar to other parts of the country. Mainly female members were involved in poultry rearing. About fifty percent farmers got on an average less than 70 eggs per year per bird. A few farmers (5.56%) informed that they had collected more than 130 eggs from a bird in a year. In most of the cases (47.22%) the length of clutch was less than 20. Interval between two clutches was found in highest percentage(42.22%). Highest egg production was observed in winter season (52.78%) followed by summer, spring and late autumn. Maximum (60%) farmer had vaccinated their birds and 55% farmers got service from Department of Livestock Services.

  The experiment was conducted in the net house and laboratory to determine the effectiveness of two insecticides viz., Cymbush (Cypermethrin) and Brifer (Carbofuran) on brown plant hopper, Nilaparvata lugens and the toxic action of these insecticides to the predators lady bird beetle, Micraspis discolor and wolf spider, Lycosa pseudoannulata. Effectiveness of the insecticides was assessed on the basis of percentage of corrected mortality of brown plant hopper, lady bird beetle and wolf spider under laboratory condition at 24, 48 and 72 h after treatment. Cymbush 10EC @ 0.05 kg a.i. ha-1. caused 100% mortality of insect populations at different time intervals. All the doses of Brifer 5G caused a good mortality of N lugens at different time intervals and was effective at higher dose. Cymbush 10EC @ 0.04 kg a. i. ha-1. and Brifer 5G @ 0.5 kg a.i. ha-1. were found very effective against N. lugens. The effectiveness of Cymbush 10EC decreased and Brifer 5G increased with increasing time interval. Cymbush 10EC @ 0.05 kg a.i. ha-1. was highly toxic and 0.01 kg a.i. ha-1. was less toxic to both the predators. Brifer 5G @ 0.5 kg a.i. ha-1. was least toxic to the predators. Between the two predators L. pseudoannulata was more susceptible to the insecticides than M. discolor.

  The study was conducted to analyze the responses of two tomato varieties, BARI tomato-4 and BARI tomato-6 to different environments. The environment used in the experiment were no mulch or control (E0), straw mulch (E1), black polythene mulch (E2), water hyacinth mulch (E3) and am-ada leaf mulch (E4). There were significant influences of different mulches on the growth and yield of tomato. The height of plant, number of leaves, number of main roots, length of roots, fresh and dry weight of roots, number of flower and fruit clusters, number of fruits per plant, weight of fruits and fruit yield per hectare were significantly higher under the environment provided by black polythene mulch. There were also variations in yield contributing characters between the varieties. BARI tomato-6 produced higher yield (55.16 t ha 1) than BARI tomato-4 (51.8 t ha 1). Among the variety-environment combinations the highest yield (61.18 t ha 1) was produced by BARI tomato-6 under the environment of black polythene mulch. This combination also gave the best economic return (BCR = 4.52).

  This study investigated the association of decision making autonomy with HIV/AIDS prevention knowledge among married women in Bangladesh. Data were used from the 1999-2000 Bangladesh Demographic and Health Survey (BDHS). For measuring women`s autonomy in decision making, we used six factors namely who take the final decision about: own health care; child health care; purchasing of large household materials; purchasing of household things for daily needs; visiting family, friends and relatives and what foods to be cooked. Using these factors, a combined score for autonomy was constructed using Likert method. Univariate analysis showed that 84% of women did not have any HIV/AIDS prevention knowledge. Multivariate logistic regression analysis revealed that women`s autonomy in decision making was an important correlate of HIV/AIDS prevention knowledge even after adjusting for some potential factors such as age, education, occupation, place of residence, exposed to radio, television and newspaper. Multivariate adjusted odds ratio revealed that women with highest score of autonomy had significantly higher knowledge of HIV/AIDS and prevention compared with women with no autonomy. Since Bangladesh is at risk for HIV/AIDS epidemic for several behavioral and biomedical risk factors, increasing women`s autonomy might be an important path to combat the consequences of HIV/AIDS in Bangladesh.

  Milk samples from single, twin and triplet or 1st, 2nd and 3rd lactation bearing Black Bengal goat were collected to monitor the physical (organoleptic, specific gravity and pH value) and chemical (acidity, fat, SNF, total solids, protein, lactose and ash content of milk) quality of milk. From the above tests, it was observed that the color, flavor, taste and texture of milk samples were normal; yellowish white, normal (goaty), slightly sweet and free flowing liquid. Except acidity and protein content, all other chemical traits varied significantly among different kid bearing goats milk. Chemical parameters were similar in different lactations except fat and total solids percentage. Results of the above experiments indicated that milk obtained from single kid bearing and 2nd lactating goats were better than the other number of kids bearing or lactating goats
