  An experiment was conducted to study the effect of planting time, mulch and irrigation on growth and yield of garlic at the Horticulture Farm of Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh during the period from October 1998 to March 1999. The objective of the work was to find out appropriate planting time and types of mulch and irrigation to get maximum yield of garlic. There were five planting time viz. October 25, November 9, November 25, December 8 and December 23 and seven types of mulch and irrigation treatments viz. Straw, water hyacinth, black polyethylene, transparent polyethylene, 10 days interval irrigation, 20 days interval irrigation and control (no mulch and no irrigation ) were used as the experimental treatments. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Complete Block Design with three replications. With the delay in planting time from Oct. 25 yield was chronologically reduced in later plantings. The highest bulb yield (3.9 t ha-1 ) was recorded when planting was done on October 25 which was statistically identical to November 9 planting (3.5 t ha-1 ). The lowest yield was obtained from December 23 (2.3 t ha-1 ) planting. Water hyacinth mulching yielded (4.27 t ha-1 ) best which was statistically identical with straw mulch (3.97 t ha-1 ). The lowest yield was obtained from white polyethylene mulch and control. Irrigation at 20 days interval showed better performance over irrigation at 10 days interval and control.

  Different post-harvest treatments manifested specific attribute in maintaining physical appearance, acceptability and economic return for bitter gourd. The physical appearance of bitter gourd at 6 days after storage was better in the perforated polythene bag and wet gunny bag. At the harvesting stage (0 day of storage) the score was the highest 10 and at 6 DAS the highest score 6 and 7 were recorded in perforated polythene bag and wet gunny bag, respectively. The gross return after 4 days after storage was higher in these treatments.

  Different post-harvest treatments manifested specific attribute in maintaining physical appearance, acceptability and economic return for tomato. The physical appearance and consumer`s acceptability score for tomatoes at 6 days after storage revealed that, perforated polythene and wet gunny bag treatments showed better physical appearance than all other treatments. The score was the highest (10) at 0 days of storage and also the highest score 7 at 8 DAS in perforated polythene bag. The gross economic returns, considering weight loss, physical appearance and consumer`s acceptability at 6 days after storage, tomatoes kept in perforated polythene bag was found to be the highest. The lowest return was observed in the polyester bag on the vegetable during storage.

  Two variety of tomato viz. manik and pusha rubi were used to evaluate the efficacy of antagonistic P. fluorescens in controlling wilt of tomato caused by R. solanacearum and in increasing yield in green house condition. Four treatments i.e. R. solanacearum (106 c.f.u./ml) was used as control and P. fluorescens was used as 109, 108 and 107 c.f.u./ml suspension. Manik (V1) showed least bacterial wilt incidence and pusa rubi (V2) showed highest wilt incidence at 30, 45 and 60 DAI. T1 (P. fluorescens 109 c.f.u./ml) and combined effect of V1T1 decreased wilt of tomato at all stages and increased fruit yield. T0 (control-only R. solanacearum 106 c.f.u./ml) and V2T0 increased bacterial wilt at all stages and decreased fruit yield. So, T1 and V1T1 may be used for controlling bacterial wilt of tomato and increasing yield.
