  The carcass characteristics and meat yield studied using a total 20 number of cage reared spent hens of White Leghorn (WLH), White Rock (WR), Rhode Island Red (RIR) and Barred Plymouth Rock (BPR). There were a significant different (p< 0.05) between breeds with live weight and dressed weight although it differ breed to breed. In case of dressed weight it is observed higher in RIR intermediate in BPR & WR and lower in WLH. Shank length, head weight, liver weight and gizzard weight were statistically non-significant between breeds. Shank length was statistically non-significant between breeds but shank weight was highly significant between them and highest in WR, intermediate in RIR & BPR but lowest in WLH. Viscera loss is higher in WLH then RIR and WR, BPR are in almost similar and the similar trained was found for feather loss and blood discharge. The result exhibits that the RIR carcass is the best, BPR and WR are in second position and the lowest is WLH in qualitative or quantitative measure not only for heavy breed but the total loss (viscera, feather and blood) is the lowest in comparison to the other three breeds. On the contrary, correlation between dressed carcass weight and abdominal fat was estimated and highly correlation was found in WLH followed by BPR, RIR and WR. If dressed carcass weight increase 1 (g) then abdominal fat increase by 0.2136(g), 0.1297(g), 0.1819 (g) and 0.0591 (g) respectively for WLH, BPR, RIR and WR. Finally it can be concluded that the RIR carcass is the best in terms of quality and quantity. The WR & BPR are almost in similar holding second position and the lowest is WLH.

  The research was conducted with natural ingredients and orange skin in the diet of laying pullets to determine the suitability as pigmenting agents of egg yolk for laying chicken The influence of test ingredients on production characteristics of laying pullets, internal and external quality characteristics of eggs were investigated simultaneously. The experiment covered the proximate analysis of marigold, orange skin meal to determine the nutrient concentrations, xanthophylls contents and 7th-12th weeks feeding trail to investigate the yolk pigment availability of marigold and orange skin as well as laying performance of birds. Orange skin and marigold were used for comparing the pigmenting ability to normal feed containing xanthophylls. Yolk color was improved significantly as compared to control for addition of marigold and orange skin during 4th, 8th and 12th weeks of supplementation. Inclusion of marigold and orange skin in the diet of laying pullets did not cause deterioration in natural and external quality of eggs and there were no significant variations with respect to body weight, hen day egg production egg weight and feed conversion. There was no mortality of birds during study period. The results indicates the conclusion that between two natural ingredients marigold contain more xanthophylls (156.32mg/kg DM) than orange skin (83.02mg/kg DM) and use of 4% marigold meal in the diet of laying pullets is enough to produce eggs with yolk color score 11.00 close to 30 mg synthetic pigment/kg diet at the 12th week of supplementation, whereas the birds that received 4% orange skin in the diet were able to produce eggs with yolk color score 5.0. Moreover, use of marigold and orange skin in diet of pullet has no detrimental effect on internal and external quality of egg as well as egg production characteristics. So, marigold can be used more efficiently for egg yolk pigmentation.

  A total of 15 young rabbits (kits) of 35 days old were randomly allocated to same concentrate mixture (T2) in a completely randomized design. All the rabbits were offered ad-libitum green grass with same concentrate mixture. All the animals were kept in the same management. The feed intake, live weight changes and feed conversion efficiency was recorded. DM intake in three different groups (A, B, C) were 350.53?46.57, 403.62 ± 41.89 and 389.30 ± 53.71 (g/wk) which were not significant. The average daily gains in group A, B and C were 11.25 ± 8.71, 15.20 ± 8.33 and 14.43 ± 9.84 respectively and the differences among groups were not significant. The differences in growth velocity among different groups were not significant. Feed conversion efficiency were 4.45, 3.79 and 3.85 for group A, B and C respectively and the values were found non-significantly different. The result indicated that feeding of mother in terms of energy did not have any significant effect on DM intake, live weight changes, growth velocity and feed conversion efficiency upon their kits.

  The present study was carried out to observe the effect of different mulches on the production of potato (Solanum tuberosum). Treatments with mulches-rice straw, water hyacinth and wastage of rice straw significantly increased potato yield over control. Salinity was found to be higher in the treatment without mulch than different mulch materials during the experimental period. From the average of two years results, it was found that highest yield (23.02 ton ha-1) and gross margin (TK69425) obtained by rice straw mulch followed by water hyacinth mulch with yield 22.23 ton ha-1 and gross margin TK 66084. The benefit cost ratio was found to be highest (2.51) in rice straw followed by water hyacinth (2.46), wastage of rice straw (2.08) and no mulch (1.69). The results indicate that potato could be cultivated in saline soil by minimizing salinity with application of mulch.

  Effect of intercropping of groundnut with maize in saline area under rainfed condition was studied. The highest groundnut seed yield and maize grain yield were obtained from their respective sole crop. The highest groundnut equivalent yield of maize (2485 kg ha‾1) obtained from T4. The highest land equivalent ratio (1.37) and groundnut yield was reduced from 18.4 to 41.46% depending on treatment. Grain yield of maize reduced from 26.67 to 54.28% depending on treatment. The highest marginal rate of return (779.15%) was obtained from T5= groundnut (30×15 cm2) + maize (200×25 cm2).

  An experiment was conducted in strongly acidic sandy loam soil (pH: 4.5-5.2) to investigate the effect of lime and potassium on nutrient uptake by soil and tuber. Lime was applied at the rate of 0, 0.5, 1.0 and 2.0 t ha-1 and potassium at the rate of 0, 60, 80 and 100 K, kg ha-1. The treatment combinations were allocated to the experimental plots in randomized complete block design. Application of lime and potassium significantly increased total dry matter yield as well as total uptake of nutrients by soil and plant. Lime slightly decreased Mg concentration in haulms and had no effect on tubers.

  A study was conducted in strongly acidic sandy loam soil at the Potato Breeder Seed Production farm, BARI, Debigonge, Panchogar, to investigate the effect of lime and potassium on tuber yield. The tested factors were application rates of lime (0, 0.5, 1.0 and 2.0 t ha-1) and potassium (0, 60, 80 and 100 K, kg ha-1). The treatment combinations were allocated to experimental plots in Randomized Complete Block Design. Lime and potassium significantly increased tuber yield. Highest increased yield was recorded about 86.54% over control. The optimum rate of lime and potassium in acidic sandy-loam soils could be recommended for potato cultivation at 2 t ha-1 and 100 kg ha-1, respectively.
