  The study was conducted to assess the alternative processing option from shrimp processing biowaste for local people in Khulna district-southwestern Bangladesh. A survey was conducted to know the existing situation. From the survey it was observed that sharp increase in shrimp production did not lead the increase in product from biowaste due to the lack of technical method. The respondents also revealed the lack of financial support and political influence as constraint and the main promising facility was the raw material availability and dried product demand. The waste cause heavy environmental pollution as most often these are dumped into water body or open field. A significantly high biological oxygen demand (p = 0.05) was found in the Rupsha river, adjacent to about 16 processing plants. Therefore it could be concluded that a technical processing method could be introduced as a new arena to process waste with maximum drying rate for economic efficiency and microbiological quality. Also the minimum loss of essential components of the dried material and comparatively cheaper than any other mechanical dryer and do not require skilled labor to build with locally available material. However, more comprehensive study and pilot scale research should be carried out immediately to develop appropriate know how for success in this venture.

  The study was conducted with a drying trial with traditional and solar dryer to assess solar dryer as an option for post processing shrimp bio-waste in Khulna district. Products of traditional and solar drying method indicates a significant difference among protein, lipid, moisture, fiber and calcium content except nitrogen free extract, suggesting the product quality was highest in solar drying method. Therefore this needs to be support research, training and technology demonstration for effective waste drying. Solar driers are small-scale engineering with low-cost locally available materials and could be operated close to the user`s house. Solar drier could increase the temperature almost double and very efficient to dry. In addition it could be a very appreciable technique to dry shrimp waste in the study area regarding the weather constraint. It could provide faster and more hygienic condition than traditional sundryer appears most suitable for the limited income processors. The cost benefit ratio revealed solar drying method is very much applicable and could increase benefit.

  The growth and yield of soybean was determined using two factors viz., methods of sowing (line sowing and broadcasting) and seed rates (40, 60 80 and 100 kg ha -1). Results revealed that leaf area index (LAI) and shoot dry matter weight were higher in line sowing than broadcasting throughout the entire course of development. Significantly highest number of plant population/plot, branches/plant, filled pods/plant, seed and stover yield were obtained in line sowing method. Seed rate significantly influenced all the studied characters except 100-seeds weight. It was observed that LAI, shoot dry matter weight, plant population/plot, plant height, number of unfilled pods/plant and seed yield increased with increased seed rate while number of branches/plant, filled pods/plant and seeds/plant decreased with increased seed rate. Interaction between line sowing and 100 kg seeds/ha gave the highest seed yield (2.76 t ha -1) which was statistically similar to line sowing and 80 kg seeds/ha (2.67 t ha -1).

  Rossomalai is a delicious and famous sweetmeat of Bangladesh. But till now the product lies at its infantile stage. Like many other Bangladeshi sweetmeats the technology of Rossomalai manufacture is also confined in the grip of a few sweetmeat traders who did not disclosed the technology to making the product to others. That is why, the product was not yet taken in to consideration by the dairy and food researchers. As a result no research information is available on the product. In this experiment Rossomalai was manufactured at Milk Vita dairy plant and compare the quality of Milk vita Rossomalai with that of product collected from the three famous sweetmeat shops. The quality of the product was matured by some physical, chemical and microbiological examination. Significant deference (P<0.01) was found in case of Rossomalai in terns of physical characteristics. It was observed from result that total solid, moisture, fat, protein, carbohydrate and ash content of Milkvita and market Rossomalai samples were 46.47 and 39.80-45.90; 53.52 and 54.09-60.19; 7.91 and 6.26-6.40; 8.29 and 5.55 - 7.03; 29.15 and 25.68-32.65 and 1.10 and 0.81-1.01 percent, respectively. Total variable bacteria differ significantly among the treatment but coliform bacteria were not significantly differing among the treatments. Physical, chemical and bacteriological examinations revealed that market Rossomalai was inferior to Milkvita Rossomalai.
