  A Study on quantitative characteristics of fruits of guava germplasm in both on and off seasons was carried out at the germplasm center, Fruit-Tree Improvement Project (FTIP) of the Department of Horticulture, Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh, during June, 2000 to April, 2001. Different quantitative characters were found statistically significant. In respect of different characters such as fruit size, fruit weight, thickness, weight of mesocarp and endocarp, number of seeds per fruit, percent edible portion. The guava showed better performance in both on and off seasons but fruits of off- seasons were better than that of on seasons. In respect of fruit weight, size, flesh weight, seed per fruit and percent edible portion, the germplasm PG-028, PG-027 and PG-005 were superior among all the germplasm in both the seasons.

  The study was carried out to identify resistant rootstocks of Solanum species for grafting of cultivated eggplant varieties against root-knot nematode and to evaluate the grafting compatibility of eggplant varieties with wild Solanum root-stocks. Three experiments were conducted in this respect. Six wild Solanum root-stocks were screened against root-knot nematode (Meloidogyne incognita). The root-stocks Solanum torvum and Solanum sisymbriifolium showed resistant reaction against root knot nematode. Fourteen varieties/genotypes were screened against root-knot nematode among which six varieties/genotypes showed resistant reaction. Three cultivated eggplant varieties viz., Sufala, Singnath and Kazla were grafted on Solanum torvum and Solanum sisymbriifolium. The highest grafting success was 95% in case of Solanum torvum with Sufala and the lowest (85%) in Solanum sisymbriifolium with Singnath. The success of grafting was not affected significantly due to the effect of scion and or of root stocks. The grafted plants showed resistant reaction against the disease while the scion plants showed susceptibility in the sick beds. The grafted plants also showed resistant reaction against the disease in the field conditions. The grafted plants also outyielded compared to the scion plants. The grafting combination Solanum torvum with Sufala gave the highest yield compared to other grafting combinations and non-grafted plants.

  Correlation and path coefficient analysis in onion showed that total bulb yield (kg ha -1) had significant positive correlation with plant height, leaf number per plant, bulb diameter and bulb yield per plant but had significant negative association with plant spacing. Path analysis indicated that bulb diameter, plant height and leaf number per plant were the principal components of yield.

  An experiment was carried out to study the growth and vegetable pod yield of edible podded pea as influenced by sowing time and spacing. The experiment consisted of two factors, which were three sowing times and six plant spacings. The results revealed that Nov. 23 sown plants showed higher leaf area index, leaf, stem and pod dry matter, plant height and vegetable pod yield than those of Nov. 8 and Dec. 8 sowing. Closest spacing produced the highest LAI, leaf, stem and pod dry matter, crop growth rate, plant height and vegetable pod yield. However, relative growth rate and net assimilation rate were the highest in widest spacing. Regardless of variation in sowing time and spacing, LAI, leaf and stem dry matter, CGR, RGR and NAR increased sharply up to 60 DAE and then declined but pod dry matter increased thereafter. Moreover, plant height increased rapidly up to 60 DAE and then slowly. The highest vegetable pod yield (10.26 t ha -1) was recorded from the Nov. 23 sowing with 30x20 cm2 spacing.

  Genetic diversity among 25 genotypes of maize were estimated by using Mahalanobis D2 statistic for eight characters. The genotypes were proposed into seven clusters. The inter-cluster distances were larger than the intra-cluster distance suggesting wider genetic diversity among the genotypes of different groups. The cluster III contained the highest number of genotypes. The cluster III also produced highest grain yield and 1000-grain weight. The highest inter cluster distanced was observed in between cluster III and II and of lowest between cluster IV and V. The highest intra-cluster distance was noticed in cluster IV and lowest for cluster VI.
