  • Phosphorus use efficiency and critical P content of stevia grown in acid
           and non-calcareous soils of Bangladesh

    • Authors: Md Maniruzzaman, Tanzin Chowdhury, Md Arifur Rahman, Md Akhter Hossain Chowdhury
      Pages: 55 - 68
      Abstract: Knowledge of phosphorus (P) uptake and its use efficiency by crop plants is essential for adequate management of the plant nutrients to sustain food production with a minimal environmental impact. To study the effects of P on the growth, leaf biomass production, P content and uptake and to estimate P use efficiency (PUE), minimum P requirement and critical leaf P content of stevia, a pot experiment was conducted in the net house of the Department of Agricultural Chemistry, Bangladesh Agricultural University following completely randomized design (CRD) with three replications in acid and non-calcareous soils of Bangladesh. The applied treatments was six viz. 0 (P0), 25 (P25), 50 (P50), 75 (P75), 100 (P100) and 150 (P150) kg P ha-1. Plant samples were collected at 15 days interval to obtain different parameters. Collective results indicated that significantly highest values of different parameters were obtained with P @ 100 kg ha-1 and the lowest from P control. Phosphorus application increased leaf dry yield at harvest by 55 to 510% in acid soil and 70 to 488% in non-calcareous soil over control. The rapid growth of the plant was recorded at the later stages (30 to 60 days after planting). Phosphorus content and uptake was directly proportional with the increased levels of P except the treatment P150 in both soils. Maximum PUE and fertilizer P use efficiency (FPUE) was observed at P100 treatment. Critical P content was estimated to be ca 0.19 and 0.30% in the leaves of stevia plants grown in acid and non-calcareous soils, respectively. For maximum leaf biomass production of stevia grown in acid and non-calcareous soils, the minimum requirement of P was also estimated to be ca 109 and 104 kg ha-1, respectively. The information of this finding would contribute to optimize the soil P use and improve fertilizer management for stevia cultivation.Res. Agric., Livest. Fish.4(2): 55-68, August 2017

  • Smartphone based automatic price determination of agricultural products

    • Authors: Md Rakib Hassan
      Pages: 69 - 75
      Abstract: Smartphones are increasingly becoming an integral part of our life. We carry it every time with us and use it to do various tasks including browsing internet, emails, social websites and others. We also perform online shopping with our smartphones. In this paper, a new automatic price determination algorithm for agricultural products is proposed that can be used by both the sellers and buyers using their smartphones. The buyers will place their demands for their required agricultural products to the sellers of a particular market and the sellers will also place their supplies. The algorithm will then automatically calculate the market equilibrium price using learning rate based iterative distributed price determination algorithm. As a result, both the sellers and buyers can save their time in finding the suitable prices of the agricultural products. The performance results show that the algorithm is stable and reaches the market equilibrium price within a few milliseconds.Res. Agric., Livest. Fish.4(2): 69-75, August 2017

  • Problems and prospects of turkey (Meleagris gallopavo) production in

    • Authors: Mohammad Asaduzzaman, Ummay Salma, Hussein Suleiman Ali, Md Abdul Hamid, Abdul Gaffar Miah
      Pages: 77 - 90
      Abstract: The study investigated the production status, problems and prospects of turkey production in Bangladesh following survey and multistage sampling procedure. Average flock size, weight of a tom and hen were 15.34±2.38, 6.58±0.15 and 2.39±0.06 kg, respectively. Commercial, homemade, and both homemade and commercial feed were used by 21.74, 30.43 and 47.83% farmers, respectively. Both tom and hen attained puberty at 7.22±0.06 months, a hen laid 69.46±0.78 eggs per annum and weight of each egg was 66.13±0.63 g. Fertility and hatchability of eggs were 50±3 and 32±1%, respectively. Male and female ratio maintained 1:4.60±0.17. Main reasons of lower hatchability were low egg fertility, faulty incubation, and both low egg fertility and faulty incubation as per 50.0, 21.7 and 28.3% farmers, respectively. None of the farmers used artificial insemination (AI) except natural breeding. Main advantages of turkey rearing over other poultry species were low disease, high market price, low feeding cost and low mortality according to 41.3, 28.3, 17.4 and 13.1% farmers, respectively. While 36.9% farmers had encountered disease, 80.4% had not used vaccine. An egg, a poult and an adult turkey were sold at BDT 76.2±1.79, 838.5±22.8 and 2587.2±74.8, respectively. In fact, turkey production is still at primitive stage which is characterized by poor housing, feeding, breeding and healthcare practices, so vigorous public extension service, training, research and marketing strategies are immediately needed to improve this sector in Bangladesh.Res.

           Jamalpur district in Bangladesh

    • Authors: Maksuda Begum, Jahura Begum, Md Kamrul Hasan Majumder, Mohammad Monzurul Hasan, Md Shamsul Hossain, Farukul Islam
      Pages: 91 - 98
      Abstract: Data on body measurements like BL (body length), CG (chest girth), WH (wither height) TM (test day milk production), PM (peak milk production), LP (lactation period), CFDC (cost for concentrate feed before test day milk production per cow), GGU (green grass used before test day milk production per cow) and husbandry practices, were collected from a total of 100 dairy cattle at the villages of Islampur upazila under the district of Jamalpur in Bangladesh from January to February 2017. Collected data were analyzed using SPSS software. The highest BL, CG, WH, CFDC and GGU were 175.71±0.42 cm, 161.74±0.24 cm,123.82±0.11 cm 125.54±0.24 bdt/cow/day and 27.29±0.89 kg/cow/day, respectively. The highest amounts of TM, PM and LP were 9.36±0.60 liter/cow, 13.11±0.54 liter/cow and 247.14±1.47 days/cow, respectively. BL, CG and WH increased with increased of the age of crossbred cattle up to 150 months of old. Similarly, CFDC and GGU increased with the increased of the age of crossbred cattle up to 150 months of old. Farmers in the study area were not interested to keep breeding bulls for breeding purpose but they were using artificial insemination system to inseminate their cows and aware about production performance record of the inseminating bull. Farmers took health services from milk vita and sold milk to the same. They believed that dairy cattle rearing a profitable livelihood. TM, PM and LP increased with the increased of the age of crossbred cattle up to 150 months of old. However, increase of CFDC will increase TM, LP and PM but increase of GGU will increase only LP. On the other hand increase of CG will increase TM and increase of BL will increase LP and PM.Res. Agric., Livest. Fish.4(2): 91-98, August 2017

  • Physico-chemical analysis and detection of adulteration in raw milk
           collected from Goalas of different places of sadar upazila in Mymensingh

    • Authors: Atikur Rahman, Md Rezwanul Habib, Md Younus Ali, Mohammad Ashiqul Islam, Md Harun ur Rashid
      Pages: 99 - 106
      Abstract: This research work was carried out to assess the physical, chemical quality and detection of adulteration in raw milk collected from goals of five different places of Mymensingh sadar upazila (BAU Sheshmore, BAU KR market, train going vendor, sweetmeat shop and Dhudmohol) in Bangladesh. Results shows that milk from sweet meat shop had 100% yellowish white colour, normal (milky) flavor and free flowing liquid whereas other sources milk varies with their percentage in terms of physical parameters. Specific gravity of milk from various sources differed significantly (p<0.01) and all the chemical parameters of milk sample collected from different sources differed significantly (p<0.01). Significantly higher percentage of total solids (12.67±0.10) and fat content (4.36±0.07) was found in milk from goala of sweet meat shop than others. All of the adulteration tests showed negative result that means no adulterant materials was found in the collected milk samples. Considering the results, it could be inferred that there was an ample fluctuation present on qualities of milk samples collected from the goalas of different places of Mymensingh sadar regarding the standard of the parameters and the raw milk samples from sweetmeat shop were of good quality. The results suggested that milk purchase from reliable sources is very much important for consumers due to its quality.Res. Agric., Livest. Fish.4(2): 99-106, August 2017

  • Species availability, culture technique, reproduction of prawn and shrimp
           in Bangladesh: A review

    • Authors: Sharmin Akter Shampa, Nusrat Nasrin, Marufa Khatun, Salma Akter
      Pages: 107 - 116
      Abstract: Bangladesh is considered one of the most suitable countries in the world for freshwater prawn farming because of its favorable agro climatic condition. The expansion of shrimp farming is triggered by the increased international market demand, seed production and intensive shrimp culture. Shrimp farming is having a positive impact on the livelihoods of many people in Bangladesh, especially the poorer farmers. Prawn and shrimp farming offer a reliable source of revenue that is often more profitable than other kinds of farming, or other non-farming employment. The objective of this paper was to review species availability, culture technique and artificial breeding of prawn and shrimp in Bangladesh.Res. Agric., Livest. Fish.4(2): 107-116, August 2017

  • Optimization of doses of Megavit and Aquaboost on the growth performance
           of Thai pangas (Pangasius sutchi) in aquarium conditions

    • Authors: Sonia Sku, Md Golam Sajed Riar, Sumit Kumer Paul, Nur A Raushon, Md Kamal
      Pages: 117 - 122
      Abstract: The present study was conducted to optimize doses of Megavit and Aquaboost on the growth performance of Thai pangas (Pangasius sutchi) in aquarium conditions. Six treatment with three replications were used (i) control; (ii) with less than recommended dose (LD) of aqua drugs (0.66 g/kg of the feed); (iii) recommended dose (RD) of aqua drugs (1 g/kg of the feed) and (iv), (v) and (vi) more than recommended doses (MRD) of aqua drugs (1.33g/ kg, 1.40 g/kg and 1.50g/kg of the feed) for 28 days in aquarium condition. In each aquarium 10 fingerlings of average initial weight 9.35 g were stocked. Feed containing either Aquaboost or Megavit, fed at 10% body weight of fish two times daily. The body weight was determined with time interval. Mortality rate also recorded. In case control feed, body weight increased slightly from initial 9.35 to 10.75g in 28 days but a positive trend in growth performance of pangas was observed after feeding different doses of aquaboost medicated diets. The highest increased body weight of 13.28±0.08g was observed in the treatment (iv) containing 1.33g/kg aquaboost in the diet of more than recommended doses where in recommended dose (iii) of 1 g/kg, the body weight of pangas increased to 11.52±0.09g. However, with the more recommended doses (MRD), (iv), (v) and (vi) in the diets, growth performance was declined. Similar results were also observed when feeding Megavit to pangas in 28 days in aquarium.Res. Agric., Livest. Fish.4(2): 117-122, August 2017

  • Present status of carp hatchery and breeding operations in Bangladesh: A

    • Authors: Nafisa Khatun, Mostt Tajnova Islam, Nishat Sultana, Sonya Mrong, Md Azizul Huq
      Pages: 123 - 129
      Abstract: Carps are the main species for the aquaculture system in Bangladesh, and the production of these species completely depends on timely and adequate supply of quality seeds. In hatcheries, since middle of nineties, stock deterioration was reported because of poor brood stock management and inbreeding depression and still though both public and private hatcheries and nurseries are producing fish seeds, but there has been a growing concern over the availability of good quality seeds for sustainable fish production. For that reason, the production of quality carp spawns and fingerlings are essential for desired production of fish in Bangladesh. We reviewed the present status of carp hatcheries along with ongoing practices of breeding in different carp hatcheries for sustainable production strategies in this region.Res. Agric., Livest.

  • Shore to landward transect burrow diversity of fiddler crab in a tropical
           intertidal coast of Chittagong in Bangladesh

    • Authors: Mst Mansura Khan, Mohammad Sadequr Rahman Khan
      Pages: 131 - 140
      Abstract: Burrows indicate the abundance and distribution of fiddler crab in an intertidal coast that varies with structure and morphology within intertidal habitats. We observed fiddler crab burrow density and characters (burrow length, depth, diameter and volume) within randomly selected six 1m2 quadrate from three intertidal habitats: higher saltmarsh, mangrove pool (a small ditch distributed within mangrove) and mangrove land through field surveys in a coast of Chittagong, Bangladesh. Burrows were observed and counted for density estimation, and burrow characteristics were studied through excavating 10 representative burrows from each quadrate of each habitat. Spearman correlation was used to relate between the distances (from shore towards land) and burrow characters. Transect starting from saltmarsh as base towards mangrove land showed burrow density decreased from shore to higher intertidal habitat. Simultaneously, higher burrow length and diameter were observed landward and contrariwise shoreward. Burrow prevalence in mangrove pools represents fiddler crabs are abundant within land and shore interface presumably due to the dual privilege of easy burrowing and moist condition required for gill ventilation.Res.
