  This research paper attempts to investigate the performance of Asparagus racemosus grown by the application of different forms and doses of nitrogen fertilizer at the Germplasm Centre (GPC) of the Fruit Tree Improvement Program (FTIP), Department of Horticulture, Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh during February to October, 2005. The treatments consisted of prilled urea and super granule urea at 0, 100, 200 and 300 kg N ha-1 concentrations. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with three replications. The number, length, diameter and both fresh and dry weight of tuberous roots were found higher with super granule urea than that of prilled urea. Root protein content was found to be 25.20% higher in super granule urea treated plants compared to prilled urea. The rates of nitrogen also had a significant effect on plant height, leaves number and number, length, diameter and both fresh and dry weight of tuberous roots when compared to 0 kg N kg ha-1 to the rest of the rates. Root protein content was 21.87, 12.5 and 14.06% higher than the control at the 100, 200 and 300 kg N ha-1 concentrations, respectively. Therefore, application of 100 kg N ha-1 as super granule urea was found to be sufficient for the sustainable production of tuberous roots of Asparagus.

  An investigation on the effect of pruning height on shoot biomass yield of Leucaena leucocephala was carried out at the Agroforestry Farm, Bangladesh Agricultural University, during February to May 2005. The experiment was laid out in randomized complete block design with three replications. Treatments included four pruning heights; 3-5 (basal cut), 50, 100 and 150 cm above the collar zone. Yield of shoot biomass increased greatly with the increase in pruning heights. Higher pruning heights had a significantly higher number of branches, length of branches and leaves per plant than those of the lower heights. The 150 cm pruning height was found to yield the highest biomass followed by the 100 cm height. The 50 cm and the basal cut were statistically similar with regard to leaf biomass. Therefore, it was concluded that a higher pruning height should be practiced in Leucaena for higher shoot biomass yield.

  A field experiment was conducted to evaluate the performance of wheat varieties as an understory crop of different multipurpose tree species at the Agroforestry Farm, Hajee Mohammad Danesh Science and Technology University, Dinajpur, during November 2005 to March 2006. Five wheat varieties such as Gourove, Sourove, Shotabdi, Kanchan and Protiva were cultivated as an understorey crop of three different tree species such as Albizia lebbeck, Psidium guajava and Mangifera indica. The experiment was laid out in split plot design with three replications where tree species were in main plot and wheat varieties were in sub plots. All the tree species were statistically indifferent in their effect on grain yield. However, the highest yield (2.60 t ha-1) was found under Albizia lebbeck followed by Mangifera indica (2.58 t ha-1) and Psidium guajava (2.53 t ha-1). The trees species at their early stages of growth had a very little impact on the associated wheat crop except that crops grown in close proximity with tree lines suffered around 11-13% yield reduction. Among the wheat varieties, Shotabdi produced the highest grain yield (2.88 t ha-1) and total dry matter followed by Gourove and Shourove. Therefore, it can be suggested that farmers in the northern region of Bangladesh may cultivate wheat variety Shotabdi as an understory crop of Albizia lebbeck during its early years of establishment.
