  • Molecular Characterization and Genetic Diversity of Aman Rice (Oryza
           sativa L.) Landraces in Bangladesh

    • Authors: MA Siddique, M Khalequzzaman, K Fatema, MZ Islam, MM Islam, MAZ Chowdhury
      Pages: 1 - 11
      Abstract: Assessment of genetic diversity and molecular characterization among rice landraces of Bangladesh is important for their identification. Genetic diversity of 96 Aman (rainfed, partially irrigated) rice landraces of Bangladesh were evaluated using eight SSR markers to characterize the landraces and also to establish the sovereignty of Bangladeshi rice gene pool. A total of 159 alleles were detected. The number of alleles per locus ranged from 13 (RM60, RM237) to 34 (RM163), with an average of 19.88. The polymorphism information content (PIC) which ranged from 0.86 (RM237) to 0.95 (RM163) with an average of 0.90 revealed much variation among the studied landraces. RM163 was the best marker for identification and diversity estimation of Aman rice landraces as revealed by PIC values. The allele frequency ranged from 8.33% (RM163) to 22.92% (RM60, RM125) with an average of 15.89. The UPGMA dendrogram based on Nei’s genetic distance revealed seven distinct clusters with a similarity coefficient of 0.09. The two-dimensional graphical view of Principal Coordinate Analysis (PCoA) revealed that the landraces Pankaij, Lotha, Chinigura, Patjag, Chinikanai, Badshabogh, Panati, Jirasail, Joria, Dudhmoni, Jhingasail were found far away and distributed around the centroid of the cluster. The findings of this study are useful for landraces identification to assist plant breeders in selecting suitable genetically diverse parents for breeding programmes.Bangladesh Rice j. 2016, 20(2): 1-11

  • Genetic Diversity in Aus Rice Genotypes using ILP Markers

    • Authors: MA Siddique, M Khalequzzaman, MZ Islam, ESMH Rashid, MHK Baktiar, MAZ Chowdhury
      Pages: 13 - 19
      Abstract: Assessment of genetic diversity is essential for germplasm characterization, utilization and conservation. Genetic diversity of 31 Aus rice genotypes of Bangladesh was assessed using 11 ILP (intron length polymorphism) markers. A total of 28 alleles were detected and the number of alleles per locus varied from 2 (RI01779, RI05751, RI05304, RI03205, RI00299, RI05407) to 4 (RI05559). The PIC values ranged from 0.06 (RI05407) to 0.57 (RI05559) with an average of 0.33. PIC value revealed that RI05559 was the best ILP markers for the studied 31 Aus rice genotypes. The dendrogram from unweighted pair-group method with arithmetic average clustering classified the genotypes into five groups at a coefficient of 0.57. Two dimensional graphical views of Principal Coordinate Analysis (PCoA) revealed that the genotypes Kuchmuch, Kalo dhan, Aus dhan, Sadey aus, Chaina and Dighi bawalia were found far away from the centroid of the cluster and can be seslected as parents for further breeding programmes. Parangi and V3, Adubali and H1-2, Begunbichi and Hashikalmi had closest distance (0.000) in the distance matrix might have same genetic background. This information will be useful for the selection of genetically diversed parents and assist in trait development using genotypes in rice breeding programmes in future. The results provided some useful implications for establishment of sovereignty of Bangladeshi rice gene pool. It was also suggested that ILP markers could be very useful for the genetic study and breeding in rice.Bangladesh Rice j. 2016, 20(2): 13-19

  • Cross Infection between Rice and Wheat Blast Pathogen Pyricularia oryzae

    • Authors: MA Monsur, M Ahmed, A Haque, QSA Jahan, TH Ansari, MA Latif, NCD Borma, MA Ali, MS Kabir, BR Banik
      Pages: 21 - 29
      Abstract: Cross infection between rice and wheat blast fungi was investigated in a series of experiments conducted under controlled glasshouse condition following a completely randomized design. Two rice (BRRI dhan29 and LTH) and two wheat (BARI Gom25 and BARI Gom26) varieties were grown in plastic trays as sole and rice-wheat mixed crop culture. Plants were artificially inoculated using virulent isolates of rice and wheat blast fungi. It was observed that irrespective of variety and crop culture technique, all the isolates of wheat blast fungus caused significant 100% plant infection on leaf typical leaf blast symptoms appeared on wheat seedlings but no blast symptom on rice. Conversely, the test-isolates of rice blast fungus did not produce any disease reaction on wheat seedlings, though leaf blast was observed on 100% rice plants. Therefore, we conclude that rice blast pathogen population is different from those of wheat blast pathogen (Pyricularia oryzae).Bangladesh Rice j. 2016, 20(2): 21-29

  • Status of Rice False Smut Disease in Natore District of Bangladesh

    • Authors: MM Sarker, AHMM Haque, B Nessa, MU Salam, MM Islam, A Muqit
      Pages: 31 - 37
      Abstract: Rice false smut has become an emerging disease across the world. Its incidence has become serious in Bangladesh during T. Aman season in the last five years. However, the status of the disease in farmer’s field has not been estimated in this country. This study included a survey of 90 fields in four unions of Natore district during ripening stage of T. Aman rice of 2015 in order to estimate the disease incidence, number of smut balls per infected panicle and yield loss, and to ascertain effectiveness of farmer’s unregistered foliar fungicide application. The results show that across the fields, disease incidence, number of smut balls per infected panicle and yield loss were 8.06±2.02%, 2.88±0.17 and 0.72±0.18% (± is 95% confidence interval), respectively. Disease incidence (18.71±5.18%), number of smut balls per infected panicle (3.51±0.39) and yield loss (1.75±0.38%) was the highest in Ramananda Khajura union compared to the other three unions surveyed. Among the varieties, BRRI dhan49 incurred the highest disease incidence (18.71±5.18%). The number of smut balls per infected panicle (3.51±0.39) and yield loss (1.75±0.38%) were also the highest in this variety. The crops which flowered during mid October to early November showed significantly higher disease incidence than early flowering crops. Application of unregistered foliar fungicides tended to have reduced the disease, but did not show significant difference with ‘no fungicide application’. It is concluded that the strategic management of the disease may be directed to the specific areas of the fields where there is a history of the disease through manipulating genotypes and transplanting time. Farmers should be cautious on adopting chemical option as there is no registered fungicide yet in Bangladesh for tactical management of the disease.Bangladesh Rice j. 2016, 20(2): 31-37

  • Effects of NPKS on Yield and Nutrition of BRRI dhan49

    • Authors: - Kamrunnahar, S Ahmad, M Iqbal, MN Islam, A Islam
      Pages: 39 - 47
      Abstract: Nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), potassium (K) and sulphur (S) strongly influence rice plant nutrition. Present experiment was conducted at the Bangladesh Rice Research Institute (BRRI) farm, Gazipur in a permanent layout in wet season of 2014. Objectives of the research were to study the effects of NPKS on grain yield, plant nutrition, requirement of NPKS to produce one ton grain and to estimate the indigenous nutrient supply of the soil. BRRI dhan49 was tested with NPKS (complete), PKS (-N), NKS (-P), NPS (-K) and NPK (-S) fertilizer packages. The NPKS were applied @ 100-7-80-3 kg ha-1. Omission of each nutrient from the complete treatments significantly reduced grain and straw yields of BRRI dhan49. The highest yield reduction was recorded because of N omission followed by K. Nutrient concentration in grain and straw as well as nutrient uptakes were significantly affected by major plant nutrients. Nutrient uptake was directly related to the biomass production. About 87% of total K uptake remained in straw and thus a good K source for rice cultivation. Nitrogen, P, K, S and Zn required to produce one ton rice were 20.88, 5.04, 18.77, 2.08 and 0.07 kg, respectively. The indigenous N, P, K and S supply capacity of this soil was 37, 13, 41 and 6 kg ha-1, respectively.Bangladesh Rice j. 2016, 20(2): 39-47

  • Field Evaluation of Brri Usg Applicator in Dry and Wet Season of Rice
           Cultivation

    • Authors: MA Hossen, MA Rahman, MK Zaman, MM Islam
      Pages: 49 - 59
      Abstract: BRRI (Bangladesh Rice Research Institute) USG (Urea super granule) applicator was developed to apply USG in non-oxidized zone at 6-10 cm depth from surface at desired spacing to maintain the recommended USG fertilizer doses of 118 and 168 kg ha-1 during Aman and Boro season, respectively that could be maintained with the adjustment of the applicator for 20 × 20 cm transplanting spacing. It was designed and fabricated with an adjustable facility for two rows operation in the rice field at spacing of 18 × 20, 20 × 20 and 22 × 20 cm. The modified USG applicator tested in the BRRI regional stations (RS) during Aman 2011 and the farmers’ fields during Boro 2012 season. Walking speed directly influenced the field capacity of the applicator. Walking speed during field operation of the applicator depends on the soil type, USG placement time and puddled condition of the soil and it was varied 2.46-3.72 km hr-1. Field capacity was observed 0.13 and 0.14 ha hr-1 during Boro and Aman season, respectively whereas manual USG application capacity was observed about 0.02 ha hr-1. The depth of USG placement by the applicator (6.01-6.32 cm) was found more compared to manual application (5.61-5.75 cm). The yield performance of USG plots was identical in all locations during both the seasons either applied by hand or by machine. However, in some cases, USG gave significantly higher grain yield compared to prilled urea applied by hand broadcasting method.Modified BRRI USG applicator saved urea fertilizer, ensured proper placement of USG in subsurface zone and reduced drudgery without sacrificing grain yield.Bangladesh Rice j. 2016, 20(2): 49-59

  • Evaluation of Fungicides for the Control of Rice False Smut
           (Ustilaginoidea virens)

    • Authors: TH Ansari, MT Khatun, M Ahmed, B Nessa, MAI Khan, MA Monsur, S Akhter, MA Ali, MU Salam
      Pages: 61 - 66
      Abstract: Outbreak of false smut, caused by the fungus Ustilaginoidea virens has been recorded in recent years in the popular rice variety ‘BRRI dhan49’ from various parts of Bangladesh. Registered and/or recommended fungicides are not yet available for chemically controlling the disease. Consequently, uses of unregistered fungicides are common by the farmers for the management of the disease. The present study was, therefore, undertaken to identify effectiveness of any fungicides to control rice false smut disease. Seven synthetic foliar fungicides were evaluated in the naturally induced diseased plots. Each fungicide was applied as spray twice, at panicle initiation and at early flowering stage. Compared to the control (no fungicide application), the fungicide ‘Controller 300 EC’ reduced the hill infection by 57%, followed by ‘Green 300 EC’, ‘Cuprofix 30 Disperss’ and Diazole 300 EC, each of those suppressed the hill infection by 50%. While Cuprofix 30 Disperss, compared to the control, resulted in the lowest number of infected panicle per hill, it was statistically similar to rest of the fungicides except for Confidence 10 SL. Fungicides and control did not have any significant variation on the number of infected florets per panicle. With respect to per unit (hill infection × number of infected panicle per hill) disease suppression Controller 300 EC was the best. However, none of the fungicides reached the level of the disease suppression, the essential criterion for registration and/or recommendation of a fungicide under Bangladesh conditions. It is concluded that more multi-location and multi-season experiments will be required to reach a decisive conclusion on foliar chemical options for controlling rice false smut disease under Bangladesh conditions.Bangladesh Rice j. 2016, 20(2): 61-66

  • Intervention of ICTs in Rice Production in Bangladesh: An Impact Study

    • Authors: S Das, MNU Munshi, W Kabir, JK Biswas
      Pages: 67 - 72
      Abstract: Research led productivity gain in rice has enabled the growth of rice production. Organized research and extension played a great role in the success of rice development in the country. However, there exists scope for further yield gain through minimizing gap between research and farm. Information Communication Technology (ICT) has proved to be significant to enhance agricultural production. Realizing its potential, Bangladesh has currently started using ICT for its agricultural development programmes. The study has revealed the strong relationship of rice production of the ICT farmers with that of non-ICT ones. DiD (Difference in Differences) model was used to analyze the comparison of rice production of two service areas. Recall method was used to collect the data. The result indicates that the production of Boro and T. Aman rice from ICT service areas has increased more than those of non-ICT areas. The counter factual outcome of DiD analysis reflects the perspective weaker treatment of non-ICT service area and stronger one of the ICT service area.Bangladesh Rice j. 2016, 20(2): 67-72

Many aspects of its epidemiology still remained unclear, notable the life cycle of RFSm pathogen, its infection site and the smut ball formation on infected panicles. Present research was undertaken to investigate the density and distribution of false smut balls on infected rice panicles aiding to understand on how severe the disease can be in a rice-ecosystem, on which position the smut balls form on infected panicles and likely yield reduction from such disease severity. This study included field observation of natural RFSm infection during 2014, 2015 and 2016, and simulated infection during 2015 in T. Aman rice in the experimental farm of the Bangladesh Rice Research Institute (BRRI), Gazipur, Bangladesh. While the number of smut balls reached as many as 136 (recorded in one panicle in 2015), the study shows there was 81, 54 and 30% probability that maximum of nine, three and only one smut ball would form, respectively. With the scenarios of density of smut ball formation in the study area, the yield loss was estimated as 0.15% for each 1% incidence level. The level of smut ball density varied between years; this severity was most likely influenced by low daily minimum temperature. In the natural observation 34.4, 53.9 and 11.7% of the smut balls were located at the base, mid and apex part of the infected panicles, respectively. When compared the balls of these three positions in relation to potential grain number, the proportion accounted for the base and mid remained almost similar, whereas the proportion in the apex was much lower. It is concluded that false smut balls predominantly form on the lower half of the infected rice panicles.Bangladesh Rice j. 2016, 20(2): 73-79

      Abstract: The study was conducted at Biotechnology Division of Bangladesh Rice Research Institute (BRRI) to investigate the effects of plant growing medium and plant growth regulator (PGR) for the callus induction and high frequency plantlets regeneration of indica rice. Ten indica rice varieties viz. BR5, BR11, BRRI dhan28, BRRI dhan29, BRRI dhan33, BRRI dhan41, BRRI dhan47, BRRI dhan48, BRRI dhan49 and BRRI dhan50 were cultured on MS, N6 and LS media. The MS medium was found better for callus induction as compared to N6 and LS media. Among the tested varieties BRRI dhan48 induced the highest percent and best quality callus. Interaction effects of BRRI dhan48 to MS medium yielded 71.55% callus induction. The regeneration efficiency of BRRI dhan48 was tested on MS medium supplemented with different combination of NAA plus BAP and NAA plus kinetin. MS medium supplemented with 2.0 mg L-1 NAA and 2.0 mg L-1 Kn was found the best in respect of percent regenerated (76.67%) plantlet as well as for the growth of plantlets in vitro.Bangladesh Rice j. 2016, 20(2): 81-87
