  An experiment was conducted at the Agronomy Field Laboratory of Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh from July to December, 2001 to study the performance of BRRI Dhan 32 in SRI and conventional methods and their technology mixes. The experiment was laid out in a split-plot design with three replications. The treatments used in the experiment consisted of (A) two planting methods viz., i) SRI planting method and ii) conventional planting method, (B) two types root placement e.g., i) J shape and ii) L shape and (C) three sources of fertilization viz., i) chemical fertilizer (N-60, P2O5-40, K2O-40, S-10, Zn-5 kg ha-1, respectively) ii) organic fertilizer (cowdung, 10 t ha-1) and iii) 50% chemical fertilizer + 50% organic fertilizer. Grain and straw yields were the highest (5.6 and 5.98 t ha-1, respectively) in SRI planting method. The highest grain yield of SRI planting method was mostly the outcome of higher total number of tillers hill-1, highest panicle length and highest number of grains panicle. Conventional planting method produced the lowest grain and straw yields (3.65 and 4.29 t ha-1, respectively). Among root placement methods L shape root placement found to be better and produced higher grain yield (4.97 t ha-1). Fertilization with 50% chemical fertilizer + 50% organic fertilizer performed the best regarding both grain and straw yields. The highest grain yield (5.04 t ha-1) and straw yield (5.67 t ha-1) were produced when 50% chemical + 50% organic were applied while the lowest ones were recorded in chemical fertilizer.

  Three physical treatments viz. Sand paper scraping, beating and hot water treatments and two chemical treatments viz. Concentrated sulphuric acid and ethyl alcohol were included in the study. These treatments were applied on seeds of two sizes viz. large and small. Results of the experiments revealed that sand paper scraping and concentrated H2504 showed more effective performance than beating and hot water treatments in breaking seed dormancy of Sesbania rostrata. Ethyl alcohol had no effect on breaking seed dormancy. Large seed showed lesser dormancy than small one. Sand paper scraping 113 revolutions) of large seed gave the highest germination (97.8%).

  The response of hybrid (Sonar Bangla-1 and Alok 6201) and inbred (BRRI Dhan 34) rice varieties was determined to the application methods of urea supergranules (USG) and prilled urea(PU). Grain and straw yields were highest (4.87 and 7.72t ha -1, respectively) in BRRI Dhan 34. The highest grain yield of BRRI Dhan 34 was mostly the outcome of highest number of grains panicle -1. Sonar Bangla-1 produced the second highest (4.28t ha -1) grain yield while the lowest one (3.86t ha -1) was produced by Alok 6201 which was the consequence of lowest number of grains panicle-1 and highest number of sterile spikelets panicle -1. BRRI Dhan 34 showed the best performance among the varieties studied for almost all the growth and yield characters. Grain yield was recorded the highest (4.5t ha -1) in the method of half USG + half PU at 10 and 30 DAT which maintained similarity with recommended method of USG and furrow placement of USG. BRRI Dhan 34 interacted favourably with furrow placement of USG to produce the highest grain yield.
