  Nutrient film technique and sand culture were tested for the year round production of tomato in Bangladesh. Two cultivars of tomato viz., Egg tomato and Kingkong were tested for growth in both winter (November 2000-February 2001) and summer (May 2001-August 2001) seasons in NFT (Nutrients Film Technique) and sand culture. Sand culture was more simple to establish and manage incurved lowed cost compared to NFT system, however higher production was observed in NFT system. Egg tomato was found to be suitable for growth in summer, where as winter was suitable for Kingkong tested NFT and sand culture.

  The biochemical parameters such as moisture, ash, protein, fat, carbohydrate, Vitamin-C, phenol, pectin and mineral contents of healthy and leaf spot disease infected mulberry (Morus sp.) leaves were analyzed. Most of these nutrient contents in mulberry leaves were affected greatly with the infection of fungi. Total sugar, reducing sugar, non-reducing sugar, starch, moisture, ash, protein and lipid contents were found to be decreased in infected mulberry leaves due to leaf spot disease caused by Cercospora moricola Cooke and these contents were decreased by 8.58, 1.6, 60.09, 20.22, 24.52, 38.16, 33.84 and 40.26%, respectively. Among the contents, only Vitamin-C, phenol, pectin and mineral contents were found to be increased in infected samples over healthy samples and these contents were increased by 90, 84.21, 35 and 39.97%, respectively. The changes of total sugar, reducing sugar, non-reducing sugar, starch, protein, ash and lipid contents decreased remarkably but those of Vitamin-C, phenol, pectin and mineral contents increased significantly in leaves of disease affected mulberry as compared to those in healthy mulberry.

  Genetic variability was studied for eight quantitative traits in fourteen parental lines of hybrid rice. The characters were plant height, flag leaf initiation day, first panicle initiation day, days to 100% flowering, days to maturity, grain yield/10 hills, spikelet fertility/10 panicles and no. of effective tillers/hill. Two additional characters (flag leaf length and spikelet length) were included in heterosis study. In general high component of variation and coefficient of variability were observed for most of the characters. The highest component of variation, coefficient of variability and heritability were noticed in grain yield/10 hills. Characters those with high genetic variability and genetic advance were considered to be important for selecting the desirable lines. Heterosis was studied in ten F1 lines for 10 characters. In general, the hybrids performed significantly better than the respective parents. Mid parent, standard variety and better parent heterosis were observed for all the characters under study. In comparison of F1 hybrids with their respective mid parent, standard variety and better parent showed significant heterosis for most of the studied characters. Among the 10 hybrids three lines viz., IR62829AxIR62036-222-3-3-1-2R, IR58025AxIR61614-38-19-3-2R and IR68888AxIR56381-139-2-2R exhibited the highest heterosis in grain yield/10 hills. In conclusion, there was an ample scope for developing suitable hybrid rice from the studied parental lines as the hybrids exhibited vigour and earliness.
