Late Jute seed production in cropland agroforestry system

Kazi Noor-E-Alam Jewel1*, Md. Mujibur Rahman2 [2015]

Farmers were not self-sufficient in jute seed production and cultivation to avoid use exotic jute seed from different resources. Though the conventional method of jute seed production was not enough to meet the demand of farmers because of shrinkage of jute seed production land. So, late jute seed production technique was applied in agroforestry systems at both established and newly developed ...

Interaction effect of phosphorus and boron on yield and quality of lettuce

Sultana Zaman Chowdhury1, Muhammad Abdus Sobahan2*, Abul Hasanat Md. Shamim2 [2015]

Proper nutrition is essential for satisfactory crop growth and production. A field experiment was conducted at Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Agricultural University, to evaluate yield and quality of Grand Rapids lettuce using various levels of phosphorus and boron. Treatment combination of 120 kg ha-1 of phosphorus and 2 kg ha-1 of boron has significantly increased plant height, leaf numbe ...

Morphological characterization of local landraces of rapeseed (Brassica campestris L. var toria) of Nepal

Salik Ram Gupta, Hari Krishna Upreti and Ujjawal Kumar Singh Kushwaha* [2015]

Rapeseed (Brassica campestris L. var toria) is the main source of edible oil for Nepalese people. 54 rapeseed lines were collected from different hilly district of Nepal ranging from 987 m to 2550 m altitude. These lines were planted in augmented design for its traits characterization in Khumaltar 2013. Different traits of local rapeseed were characterized, and evaluated. NGRC 02778 performed ...

The current study was aimed to assess the effects of different iodate concentrations on morpho-physiological characteristics of potato. In this regard, a pot experiment was carried out during the spring and summer 2013. Five concentrations of KIO3 including control beside 10, 20, 40, and 80 mg/Kgsoil were applied through irrigation system. The results showed that all selected agronomical and m ...

Root iron (Fe) exclusion capacity of four lowland rice genotypes were evaluated in increasing rate of Fe2+ stresses (0, 500, 1000 and 1500 mg/L) in growing medium under the conditions of low and high vapor pressure deficit. Rice root excluded significantly higher amount of iron under dry atmospheric condition (655 mg Fe/g root dry matter) than moist atmospheric condition (118 mg Fe/g root dry ...
