  The study described the composition and status of undergrowth (shrubs, herbs and grasses) in a degraded deforested area of Chittagong (South) forest division, Chittagong, Bangladesh. A stratified random quadrat method was used in the study. The area on the whole consists of 45 species of undergrowth of 31 families. Shrubs layer includes 14 species of 12 families and herbs and grasses include 31 species of 19 families. Among the shrubs Clerodendrum viscosum shows the highest density (94 plants/100 m2) and Cassia alata shows the lowest density (8 plants/100 m2). The highest frequency was found in Clerodendrum viscusum (50%) and lowest frequency was found in Corcorus capsularis (5%). The highest abundance was recorded in Corcorus capsularis (13) followed by Ipomoea fistulosa (11) and Lantana camara (11). Among the herbs and grasses Imperata cylindrica shows the highest density, frequency and abundance (7638 plants/100 m2, 77% and 394, respectively) followed by Cynodon dactylon (687 plants/100 m2), Unidentified–4 (265 plants/100 m2). The lowest frequency (5%) and abundance (3) were recorded in Pueraria sp. and Musa paradisiaca, respectively. Abundance frequency ratio of each shrubs, herbs and grasses are >0.05 showing the contagious nature of each species distribution.

  Shoot tip culture of BARI banana 1 (Musa sp.) were cultured on MS medium supplemented with 5.0 mg L-1 BAP for shoot proliferation. Well-developed shoots were used for rooting. Among the six different concentrations of IBA (0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.4, 0.5, 0.6 mg L-1) with half strength MS medium, a good number of healthy roots were produced on half MS+0.5 mg L-1 IBA (7.86) followed by half MS+0.6 mg L-1 IBA (6.89) and half MS+0.4 mg L-1 IBA (6.31) with the weight of 0.85, 0.83 and 0.77 g plantlet-1, respectively. However, 95-100% plantlets were survived when they were transferred to small plastic pots after 15-20 days in vitro culture on half MS medium supplemented with 0.4–0.6 mg L-1 IBA and 7 days hardening at room temperature.

  This study was undertaken with a view to determining the effect of partial green grass over dry feeding on the productive performance of early lactating crossbred cows. With that understanding, fifteen early lactating crossbred cows having nearly similar body weight, body condition score, milk yield and stage of lactation were selected and divided into three groups composed of five in each group (A, B and C group). Cows of A group received 2 kg concentrates without green grass daily. Group B and C received daily 1.85 kg conc. + 3 kg green grass and 1.75 kg conc. + 6 kg green grass respectively along with ad libitum straw for each cow of all groups. Daily feed intake were recorded. Live weight changes of cows were measured fortnightly and condition scores were measured before starting and at the end of the experiment. Milk composition (fat, SNF, protein and ash) as percentage were determined monthly. The average daily DM intake were 7.07±0.12, 7.16±0.03 and 7.78±0.04 kg for A, B and C group, respectively. This study showed that the DM intake, live weight gain, body condition score, milk yield and milk composition in respect of fat, SNF and protein were significantly (p<0.01 and p<0.05) higher in C group followed by B group and lowest values obtained in A group. Considering the present research, it would be fair to conclude that the partial green grass over dry feeding showed the positive effect on the productive performance of early lactating crossbred cows.

  The experiment was carried out with an aim to assess the quality of Dahi prepared from cow, goat and buffalo milk. With that understanding, milk samples were collected from Bangladesh Agricultural University Dairy farm; Senbari, Mymensingh; Gobiddocher, Mymensingh and Dahi samples were analyzed in the Dairy Technology and Animal Nutrition Laboratory of the Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh. The parameters used to monitor the quality of Dahi samples were physical (smell and taste, body and consistency, color and texture), chemical (protein, fat, total solids, ash, acidity and pH) and microbiological (gram positive rods and cocci, total viable count, coliform and mould count). From the result of all parameters it can be concluded that Dahi prepared from cows milk in the Dairy Technology Laboratory, Department of Dairy Science was superior to Dahi samples in same place from buffalo and goat milk. Most of the nutritional parameters it can be found that Dahi sample prepared from buffalo milk scored the highest. From the nutritional point of view it can be showed that Dahi prepared from buffalo and goat milk was not so bad. So, the people of our country are suggested to prepare Dahi from cow, buffalo and goat milk and also follow to strict hygienic conditions in order to get good quality Dahi.

  The present study was conducted to identify the most potential source and composition of biodegradable solid waste generated in the Chittagong metropolitan area of Bangladesh, without which any energy recovery plan from solid waste tends to be trivial. The composition of the domestic source along with their sub sources (done by systematic sampling) and physical and chemical properties were studied. Pertinent domestic source was found the most potential (75.75%) source of biodegradable solid waste production. Vegetable matters and remaining of fruit matters was found the highest component (38.4%) of domestic solid waste along with the sub sources ranging from 50 to 25%. Average waste density, moisture content, organic matter, C: N was found 117 kg m-3 (ranging from 136.23-95.36 kg m-3 among the sub sources), 0 (34.13-25.38%), 9.57% (43.03-35.75%) and 17 (20.37-15.08), respectively. The study revealed the promising prospect of the capability of ostensible domestic solid waste to redeem the energy rather than pervert them to dump in the open low value lands.
