  As quality of feed is the main determinant factor in successful poultry farming attempts were made to evaluate the quality of feeds used in the farms of Bangladesh in respect of aflatoxin. Feed samples were collected from two layer farms, four big hatcheries and six broiler farms located in different areas of Bangladesh and the collection was continued for twelve months. In feed samples collected during the twelve months, aflatoxin content was found to vary from 0 to 98 ppb. Only aflatoxin B1 was detected in the feed samples and the percentage of incidence was at a maximum in the months of June, July and August, while and from November to February, no aflatoxin was detected in any feed. Higher amount of aflatoxin accumulation in the poultry feed was noticed in rainy season. A positive correlation (0.814) was found to exist between the moisture and aflatoxin contents of the feed. Feed used in the breeder farm was superior to those of broiler and layer farms with respect to aflatoxin content. Poor quality maize could be considered as a source of aflatoxin contamination in poultry feed as it contained reasonable amount of the toxin (23 to 121 ppb) irrespective of the season. Storage condition as practiced in the farm and the left-over feed of the farm might not have contributed to the elevation of aflatoxin level in poultry feed.

  Eight different weed species were identified to be present among which jungle grass and purple nutsedge were the most abundant weeds during both of the kharif seasons. All of the herbicides including hand weeding eradicated completely the crow footgrass and purslane from the treated plots. On the contrary, purple nutsedge was the most tolerant weed and non of the herbicides was potent enough to eliminate it completely. For soybean, days to flowering and maturity, plant height and seed/pod were not affected significantly by different herbicides as compared to hand weeding and no-weeding control. However, plant population, number of pods/plant and yield were significantly affected. All the treated plots including hand weeding produced 47 to 133% more yield as compared to no-weeding control.

  Field experiments on 12 groundnut genotypes were carried out at three different locations of Malakand Division. Significant differences were noted for maturity duration, pod plant -1, kernel pod -1, shelling%, 100-kernel weight and pod yield, among the locations, genotypes and location X genotype interaction. Maturity was earlier at Cheena, with minimum pod plant -1 and kernel pod -1. Among the genotypes, PG-931 and PI-338337 were earliest in maturity. PG-931 also had maximum pods plant -1 whereas PI-338337 had maximum kernel pod -1. 100-kernel weight was higher at Cheena. PG-951 (74.91%) and PG-864 (74.12%) produced maximum shelling % at all the locations. The highest pod yield of 3167 Kg ha -1 and 2750 kg ha -1 were recorded at Mingora and Cheena, respectively. Among the genotypes, PG-931 produced the maximum yield of 3685 Kg ha -1, whereas minimum yield of 1583 kg ha -1 was recorded for the check variety, Swat Phalli-96.
