  Seeds of two jute species (Corchorus capsularis L. and C. olitorius) were collected from two different locations. Viability/ germination test (laboratory standard and pot-culture), Vigour test (speed of germination, hot test and cold test) and other tests (germination after 48 hours and rate of germination) were used to know seed potentiality. The seed lots of C. capsularis were differed significantly in pot culture, speed of germination, cold and germination after 48 hours tests. In C. olitorius seed lots differed significantly in laboratory standard germination, pot-culture, hot and cold tests (p = 0.01). The highest germination of 92% in C. capsularis and 96% in C. olitorius were found in laboratory standard germination and the lowest of 11 and 16% in C. capsularis and C. olitorius respectively for cold test. The locations differed due to vigour and other potentiality tests. However, the difference were insignificant in viability/germination tests. The highest germination of 88% was found in C. olitorius for both the locations Faridpur and Rangpur and lowest 16% in C. capsularis of Manikgonj. Highest correlation (r = 98**) was found in pot-culture with hot test of C. capsularis and in laboratory standard germination with pot-culture of C. olitorius (r = 97**). Rate of germination showed negative but significant correlation with all other tests.

  An experiment was conducted to investigate the influence of fresh jute leaves as a source of plant nutrients on late jute seed production. Fresh jute leaves were collected just after harvest of jute crop and was incorporated to the soil at the rate of 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10 percent along with a recommended dose of chemical fertilizer (Urea-TSP-MP-Gypsum-Zincsulphate - Borax at the rate of 200-100-40-100-22-10 kg ha‾1 respectively). With the increasing rate of fresh jute leaves pH of the soil successively decreased from 6.47 to 6.31 and organic matter content of the soil increased from 2.45 to 48.36 % and nutrient contents in soil was also increased and of N, P, K and S were increased upto 47.36,53.00, 62.50 and 55.55 percent respectively. A highly significant increase in number of branch, number of pod and seed yield was obtained with 4,5 and 10 percent of fresh jute leaves and a spectacular increase was also found with 1,2 and 3 percent of fresh jute leaves. The seed yield was significantly correlated with number of branches, number of seeds and number of pods per plant.
