  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.

  An investigation was undertaken to see the effect of added nitrogen supplied from poultry manure and urea-N on the growth, yield and nutrient uptake of BRRI Dhan 29 rice. There were eight treatments consisting of T0 (control), T1 (N100), T2 (PM5.0), T3 (N75 + PM1.25), T4 (N50 + PM2.5), T5 (N25 + PM3.75), T6 (PM7.5) and T7 (N120). Application of poultry manure alone or in combination with urea-N significantly increased the plant height, number of effective tillers hill-1, panicle length, number of grains panicle-1 and filled grains panicle-1 whereas 1000-grain weight varied insignificantly. The grain and straw yields increased significantly with different treatments and the highest yield was obtained with T6 treatment which was statistically at par with T5. The NPKS uptake was positively influenced by different treatments. Poultry manure was found the best source of N for rice. Application of poultry manure considerably increased the organic matter content, total N, available P, exchangeable K, available S and CEC of the post harvest soil and thus improved soil health.

  The field experiment was conducted in a silt loam soil to compare the effect of N, P and K fertilizers on the yield and nutrient uptake by rice and post-harvest soil properties. Seven treatments were T0 (control), T1 (Urea + Triple superphosphate + Muriate of potash), T2 (Urea + Diammonium phosphate + Muriate of potash), T3 (Urea + Triple superphosphate + Ash), T4 (Urea + Single superphosphate + Muriate of potash), T5 (Urea + Single superphosphate + Ash) and T6 (Urea + Diammonium phosphate + Ash). Application of fertilizers significantly increased the grain and straw yields of rice. Panicle length, effective tillers hill-1 and filled grains panicle-1 were also increased significantly due to application of fertilizers but the increase of 1000-grain weight was insignificant. Grain yield was highest with T3 (Urea + Triple superphosphate + Ash) treatment (5.46 t ha-1) which was followed by T1 (Urea + Triple superphosphate + Muriate of potash) treatment (5.30 t ha-1), while the lowest was in control. The grain yields were increased by 47.0 to 68.0% over control due to application of fertilizers. The results on straw yield reflected similar trend as in grain yield. Application of fertilizers caused a significant increase during NPKS uptake by rice. The application of fertilizers had a negligible influence on pH, CEC, organic matter, total N, available P, exchangeable K, and available S content of the post-harvest soils compared to their initial status.

  Experiment was carried out to investigate the effect of cephalexin on sex expression, fruit setting, fruit development and yield of cucumber. Cucumber was grown in the field at natural condition and treated with cephalexin solutions of 0,12.5, 25, 50, 75 and 100 ppm at seedling stage (2-true leaf stage). Data were collected on number of male flowers/plant, number of female flowers/plant, number of fruits/plant, days to first male flowers, days to first female flowers, % fruit setting, fruit size, fruit weight and fruit yield/plant. The results revealed that foliar application of cephalexin changed the growth habit of cucumber reducing the vegetative phase and extending flowering phase of the plant. The lowest vegetative phase (30.3 days) and the highest reproductive phase (65 days) was found in the plants treated with 50 ppm cephalexin. It suppressed the production of male flowers but increased the number of female flowers thereby subsiding the ratio of male to female flowers. Cephalexin significantly increased the fruit setting over control with the highest (68.7%) in 50 ppm. It also increased the fruit length, girth, weight and ultimately total yield/plant by 48.0, 55.0, 52.6 and 172.2%, respectively, in 50 ppm treatment.
