  The average family size 5.10 and effective family member of all farm category 2.33 was found in project farmers (PF). While the average family size 4.87 and effective family member 2.67 was recorded in non-project farmers (NPF). Average 42.33 and 53.33% in project farm and 64.33 and 18% farmers in non-project farm were found in between education level I-V and VI -X. Average 17.67% farmers were reported illiterates in non-project farm. About 62% farmers in project farm replied that agriculture+business was their main occupation while 72% replied only agriculture was main occupation. A total 27 different modern technologies were used by project farmers whereas non-project farmers used only 8 both traditional and improved technologies in agriculture production. Marginal farmers used highest numbers of technologies in homestead area compared to small and medium farmers. Yield was found 217% higher by the PF of medium group than non-project farmers due to use of new technologies at different production units by the project farmers. The results indicated that higher yield was possible to the project farmers by adopting or using new technologies and resources. Farm income was higher (Tk. 44095/farm/year) with the project farmers than that of non-farm project (Tk. 37770/farm/year). Cash balance of the project farmers was also found higher than that of non-project farmers.

  The objective of this study was to see if it is possible to grow rice as a duel purpose crop i.e. as a source of green fodder and seed/grain. Results obtained from the experiment involving a) four leaf clipping heights viz. 10, 15, 20 cm and control (no clipping) and (b) four cultivars of rice viz. Latishail, BR10, BR11 and BRRIdhan32 revealed that green fodder yield decreased with the increase in height of leaf clipping. The lowest and highest green fodder yield were obtained from 20 and 10 cm clipping height, respectively. The identically highest green fodder yields were found by cultivars Latishail and BR11, respectively and the lowest by BRRIdhan32. Plant height was positively related to leaf clipping height. The highest and lowest plant heights at harvest were found in control (no clipping) and 10 cm clipping treatments, respectively. Hay yield and seed yield decreased with the decrease in height of leaf clipping. The lowest and highest yields of both hay and seed were obtained from 10 cm clipping height and control (no clipping), respectively. Clipping at 20 cm was statistically identical with control (no clipping) in respect of hay and seed yield. The highest hay and seed yields were found by cultivar BR11. It is possible to harvest rice green fodder from transplant aman rice like BR11 and the height of leaf clipping may be up to 20 cm at vegetative growth stage.

  The research work was conducted to observe weed vegetation and to ascertain the comparative control efficiency of weeding methods in upland direct seeded Aus rice. Weed density was affected significantly by weeding methods at 60 days after sowing. The highest weed density (149.14 m–2) was observed in control plot. The lowest weed density (77.64 m–2) was recorded in T6 (ronstar @ 2.5 L ha–1) treatment and the second lowest density of weed was attained from T5 (ronstar @ 2.0 L ha–1) and T2 (Two hand weeding) treatment. Most of the weed species infested in experimental plots were graded as good control in T6 (ronstar @ 2.5 L ha–1), T5 (2.0 L ha–1) and T2 treatment. But the application of ronstar @ 2.5 L ha–1 resulted in phytotoxic effect and rice plants were short statured and flowering was delayed. Moreover conventional two hand weeding method was observed very much laborious, time consuming and less cost effective for controlling the weeds. It was evident that the application of ronstar @ 2.0 L ha–1 was found the easiest and economically viable method for controlling different weed species grown in upland direct seeded Aus rice.
