  • Upscaling and Evaluation of BARI Inclined Plate Planter

    • Authors: M A Hoque, M R Karim
      Pages: 1 - 8
      Abstract: The BARI inclined plate planter was developed for one pass tillage and seeding operation. But the planter was not capable of planting small seeds as seeds were entering between the plate and base. So, six additional MS base plates were incorporated in the planter. Three plates were redesigned and fabricated for maize seed (9 cells); for wheat, mungbean, lentil, jute, etc (32 cells) and for rice seed (11 cells). Changing of inclination of the plate is needed to use same (32 seed cell) plates for different crops and to calibrate the planter for 10% more or less seed than the predefined rates. Field test of BARI developed inclined plate planter was conducted in Gazipur, Pabna, and Barisal and its performance were evaluated. The planter was tested for sowing maize, wheat and mungbean during 2011-12. Effective field capacity and field efficiency were 0.17 ha/h and 75%, respectively. Coefficient of seed distribution uniformity and coefficient of planting depth uniformity were 97 and 94%, respectively. Time and cost saving to complete land preparation and planting of maize by inclined plate planter were 90 and 86%, respectively than conventional hand planting. The payback period of the BARI planter is 1.20 year. Break-even use time is 97 hours.The Agriculturists 2015; 13(2) 01-08

    • Authors: Farhana Jahan, A T M Mahbub-E-Elahi, A B Siddique
      Pages: 9 - 16
      Abstract: This study was conducted to assess the bacteriological quality of fresh raw beef sold in different markets of Sylhet Sadar. A total of seventy five (75) fresh raw beef samples were randomly collected from seven  major markets (Shibgonj, Mirabazar, Kazitula, Ambarkhana, Madina market, Bandar bazar and Sheikh ghat) of Sylhet Sadar. Total Viable Count of the samples ranged between 2.5 × 105 to 2.25 × 108cfu/g. Acceptability for consumption of these samples as satisfactory, acceptable and rejected were 40, 32 and 28%, respectively. A total of 115 bacterial isolates of 5 genera were identified including gram negative Escherichia coli [15(10%)], Salmonella spp. [20(13.33%)], Klebsiella spp. [30(20%)], Enterobacter spp. [10(6.67%)] and gram positive Staphylococcus spp. [40(26.67%)]. The presence of these organisms in fresh meat from conventional beef is alarming.

  • Analysis of Yield Components and Aroma of Small Grain Aromatic Rice
           (Oryza sativa L.) in Bangladesh

    • Authors: Parth Sarothi Saha, Mizan Ul Islam, Md. Sirajul Islam, Muhammad Abdus Salam
      Pages: 17 - 24
      Abstract: The study was conducted to evaluate the extent of variability among the small grain aromatic (SGA) rice (Oryza sativa L.) genotypes for yield and yield components. Twenty four popular SGA rice genotypes were evaluated for yield and yield contributing characters in BRAC Agricultural Research and Development Centre, Gazipur, Bangladesh. BRRI dhan34 was used as check variety. Highest grain yield per plant was observed in Chinikanai-1, which was followed by Kalijira PL-9, Kalijira PL-3 and Badshabhog. Chinikanai-1 had the highest number of grains per panicle. Correlation analysis revealed that the number of panicles per plant (r = 0.646) and number of grains per panicle (r = 0.525) had the positive contribution to grain yield. Based on sensory test, it was found that 18 genotypes were scented and six were lightly scented. After evaluation of yield components, four genotypes namely Chinikanai-1, Kalijira PL-9, Kalijira PL-3 and Badshabhog were selected as outstanding genotypes, which can be used as potential breeding materials for sub-tropical environment of Bangladesh.The Agriculturists 2015; 13(2) 17-24

  • Stability Analysis of Selected Jute (Corchorus
           capsularis
    L.) Genotypes in Saline and Non-saline Soils of
           Bangladesh

    • Authors: M Billah, B Sikder, M A Latif, A K Chowdhury
      Pages: 25 - 35
      Abstract: Ten white jute genotypes (Corchorus capsularis L.) were evaluated across three different locations including saline and non-saline soils of Bangladesh during 2014 to assess genotype × environment interaction and stability for plant height, base diameter, fresh weight with leaves, dry stick weight and dry fiber weight. Additive Main Effect Multiplicative Interaction (AMMI) model was used to assess the additive and multiplicative interaction of jute genotypes for these characters across three environments. Significant variations in genotype environment interaction were observed for all characters except plant height and base diameter. Based on stability parameters bi1 and bio, the genotype C-3465 showed stability for plant height, D-154 for base diameter and fresh weight with leaves. The genotypes C-2753 showed stability for fresh weight with leaves, without leaves and dry stick weight, CVL-1 for fresh weight without leaves, C-2760 for fresh weight with leaves, without leaves and for dry fiber weight across saline and non- saline area. Heritability in broad sense was quite high for all characters (85-90%) except plant height (17%) indicating less environmental fluctuation. Expected genetic advanced of mean was moderate to high (14%-29.16%) except plant height (3.20%) indicating the good scope of selection for improving the traits.The Agriculturists 2015; 13(2) 25-35

      Pages: 36 - 43
      Abstract: A pot experiment was conducted at Patuakhali Science and Technology University, Dumki, Patuakhali during April 2013 to May 2014 to study the survival abilities of 10 Arabian date palm accessions in Bangladesh. The experiment was laid out in a two factors (ten accessions and three pot mixtures) in the Completely Randomized Design (CRD) with three replications. There were significant differences in various traits among the genotypes. The time required for germination was the lowest for Dubai small but the highest for Dabash. The time required the completion of germination of saplings was the least for Deglet Nour (Algeria) and the highest for Marium (Algeria). The highest number of leaves was found in the Deglet Nour (UAE) and the lowest was in Farida. After 12 months, the tallest plant was measured for Dubai small but the shortest was for Deglet Nour (UAE). The highest plant vigour after 12 months was found in Deglet Nour (Saudi), while the lowest was in the Deglet Nour (UAE). Among the three pot mixtures, soil : cowdung = 1:1,showed best results for plant height and vigour.

  • Impact of Weather on Sigatoka Leaf Spot of Banana (Musa
           spp. L.) and its Ecofriendly Management

    • Authors: M A H Khan, I Hossain, M U Ahmad
      Pages: 44 - 53
      Abstract: A study was carried out during July 2010 to April 2012 to understand the effect of weather prevalence on sigatoka disease of banana suckers in different areas of Bangladesh and to develop an environment friendly disease management practice.  Four locations viz. Dinajpur, Bogra, Rangpur and Madhupur were surveyed. To find out suitable and ecofriendly management practices for  controlling sigatoka disease of banana, seven  treatments were used viz. i) Soil drenching with BAU- Biofungicide (2%), ii) BAU-Biofungicide as foliar spray (2%), iii) Soil drenching with BAU-Biofungicide (2%) plus foliar spray (2%), iv) Bavistin (carbendazim) spray (0.2%), v) Dithane M-45 (mancozeb) spray (0.2%), vi) Soil drenching with BAU-Biofungicide (2%) plus Bavistin spray (0.2%); and vii) control. The average highest incidence (26.42%) and severity (22.84%) of sigatoka disease of banana suckers were recorded during October at Bogra, while the lowest incidence (9.75 %) and severity (8.51%) were recorded during January at Dinajpur. Out of the control measures employed, BAU-Biofungicide (2%) either alone or in combination with Bavistin (0.2%) was found as an excellent biocontrol means for controlling sigatoka disease of banana suckers.

  • Effect of Herbicide in Controlling Broadleaf and Sedge Weeds in Wheat
           (Triticum aestivum L.)

    • Authors: M M Kamrozzaman, M A H Khan, S Ahmed, A F M Ruhul Quddus
      Pages: 54 - 61
      Abstract: The study was conducted to assess the effectiveness of herbicide for controlling of weeds in wheat field at FSRD Site, Hatgobindapur, Faridpur during rabi 2011-12 and 2012-13. The experiment was laid out in a RCB design with five replications. There were four treatments viz. U46D fluid, ronstar 25 EC, one hand weeding and control (no weeding). Seven weed species were found in the plots and Cyperus rotundus, Cynodon dactylon, Chenopodium album were the most important weed species. Weed density and dry weight were affected significantly by different treatments. The highest weed dry weight was obtained in control while the lowest dry weight and the highest weed control efficiency were obtained from ronstar 25EC@1 ml/liter water against all types of weed species. Weed control efficiencies of ronstar 25EC against broad leaf, sedge and grass were 92, 86 and 64 %, respectively over control. The lowest weed control efficiency was obtained from one hand weeding treatment, which might be due to lack of proper weeding. Ronstar 25EC produced the highest grain (4.33 t/ha) and straw yields (4.38 t/ha) which were statistically identical to those of U46D fluid. The highest harvest index (49.71%) was found in ronstar 25EC and the lowest (41.89%) was obtained in control. The highest benefit cost ratio (2.30) was obtained from ronstar 25EC that was much higher than hand weeding (1.69). The lowest BCR (1.58) was recorded from the control. It was concluded that herbicide could be a viable alternative of manual weed control practices in wheat cultivation.

  • Effect of Conservation Tillage on Soil Chemical Properties in Rice-Maize
           Cropping System

    • Authors: A K M Saiful Islam, M A Saleque, M M Hossain, A K M Aminul Islam
      Pages: 62 - 73
      Abstract: Soil organic matter, nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) nutrition of rice-maize cropping systems are important for sustaining crop productivity and food security. An experiment was conducted to determine the effects of tillage practices and residue retention on soil chemical properties in rice-maize cropping system. Conventional tillage, single pass wet tillage in rice (rotated with zero tillage in maize), bed planting (unpuddled rice transplanting) and strip tillage (unpuddled rice transplanting) in vertical plots and residue retention (0, 50 and 100%) in horizontal plot were tested for three consecutive years (2009-12). Rice was grown as transplanted irrigated crop and maize as upland crop. After third crop, strip tillage increased soil organic matter compared to bed and zero tillage at 0–7.5 cm soil depth. After three years, retention of crop residues, irrespective of tillage treatments, increased soil organic matter (SOM) at 7.5–15.0 cm soil depth. Tillage practices (puddled or unpudled) showed no significant changes in SOM. Neither tillage nor residue management had any significant effect on soil pH, total nitrogen, available phosphorus and exchangeable potassium.

    • Authors: Tahmina Akter, Mohammed Ali
      Pages: 74 - 80
      Abstract: An experiment on the efficacy of pheromone on capturing angoumois grain moth, Sitotroga cerealella (Olivier) was conducted in the laboratory of the Department of Entomology, Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University, Bangladesh, using rice variety BR11. Pheromone (X-lure) trap was used as a treatment and data were recorded at different days and distances. The experiment was laid out in a Completely Randomized Design (CRD) with four replications. In case of total captured moth, the highest percentage (%) was recorded at 1st day (28.60%), whereas the lowest percentage (%) was recorded at 15th day (7.60%). It was also observed that with the increase of distance of pheromone trap, the % of captured moth was decreased. The pheromone X-lure was found useful only for monitoring S. cerealella (Olivier).The Agriculturists 2015; 13(2) 74-80

  • Plant Extract Regulating Pectate Lyase Production in Soft Rotting
           Bacterial Isolates

    • Authors: Nazmun Nahar, Md. Manjurul Haque, Md. Abu Ashraf Khan, Md. Ashraful Haque
      Pages: 81 - 88
      Abstract: Soft-rotting bacteria caused diseases by secreting the plant cell-wall-degrading enzymes mainly pectate lyase (Pel). In this study, a total of 20 bacterial strains were isolated from soft rotted fruits and vegetables. Among them, 11 isolates produced soft rot symptom on potato tubers. All these isolates were partially characterized. When these isolates were tested for their Pel production in different media, the isolate P1 produced significantly higher amount of Pel than other isolates in M63 glycerol minimal medium. Interestingly, the isolate P1 grown on M63 glycerol minimal medium supplementing with 0.4% of polygalacturonic acid (PGA) and M63 glycerol minimal medium plus 0.4% of PGA and 1% of various plant extracts, Pel production was induced in M63 glycerol minimal medium containing 0.4% of PGA and hyper-induced in M63 glycerol minimal medium plus 0.4% of PGA and 1% of various plant extracts. However, Pel synthesis was not hyper-induced in high concentrations of potato extract. Thus, not only plant extracts but also concentrations of plant extract may be important for hyper-induction of Pel.The Agriculturists 2015; 13(2) 81-88

  • Genetic Diversity Analysis in Exotic Hybrid Rice Genotypes Grown During
           Wet Season in Bangladesh

    • Authors: A Ahmed, S G Shaon, M S Islam, P S Saha, M A Momin
      Pages: 89 - 96
      Abstract: Two experiments were conducted with 43 IRRI developed F1 hybrid rice genotypes  (HRDC) for ten agronomic characters in a randomized complete block design to study the genetic diversity through multivariate analysis in Gazipur and Pabna districts, respectively during wet season 2013. On the basis of D2 values, the genotypes were grouped into five different clusters. During wet season, cluster III comprised maximum number of genotypes (15). The data obtained across locations showed that there are significant differences among HRDC genotypes for all growth parameters, yield and yield components. The highest yield (5.65 t ha-1) was observed in HRDC 1341 because of produced heaviest panicle (4.28 g) and the lowest (2.48 t ha-1) in HRDC 1311 because of obtained lowest fertility (49.9 %) and 1000-grain wt. (12.9 g), respectively. The maximum inter-cluster distances were observed between cluster I and V (11.63) and the minimum between cluster III and IV (2.35). The highest intra-cluster distance (1.73) was observed in cluster III and minimum in cluster I (0.00), since it consisted with one genotype. Difference in cluster means existed for almost all the characters studied. Among the characters, growth duration, spikelet panicle-1, fertility (%) and 1000-grain wt contributed the most for divergence in the genotypes. The highest mean values for fertility percentage, panicle weight and 1000 grain wt. but early flowering and short maturing genotypes were grouped into Cluster II followed by Cluster III and IV indicating that the genotypes have genetic potentiality to contribute better for yield maximization of hybrid rice.The Agriculturists 2015; 13(2) 89-96

  • Influence of Fertilizer Levels on the Growth and Yield of Black Cumin
           (Nigella sativa L.)

    • Authors: M M K Ali, M A Hasan, M R Islam
      Pages: 97 - 104
      Abstract: An experiment was conducted at the research farm of Crop Physiology and Ecology Department, Hajee Mohammad Danesh Science and Technology University, Dinajpur, Bangladesh, during November 2013 to April 2014 to determine the growth and yield performance of four varieties of black cumin (Exotic variety, BARI kalozira-1, Faridpur local and Natore local) as influenced by three levels of fertilizers (40-20-30 Kg ha-1, 80-30-45 Kg ha-1 and 120-40-60 Kg ha-1 N-P-K, respectively).  The experiment was conducted in a randomized complete block design (RCBD) with three replications. First flower bud initiation day, capsule setting, and capsule ripening in 50% plant were not significantly influenced by N-P-K fertilizer levels. The secondary branch plant-1, tertiary branch plant-1,plant height at harvest, capsule length, capsule diameter and 1000 seed weight of black cumin were also not influenced significantly by the fertilizer levels. The dry matter weight  plant-1, primary branch plant-1, fruit plant-1, seed capsule-1 and grain yield of black cumin genotypes were significantly influenced by different levels of N-P-K fertilizers. Natore local gave maximum dry matter  production plant-1  at 55 DAS with moderate  N-P-K levels and at 70 DAS with higher N-P-K fertilizer levels (0.22 and 1.06 g, respectively), whereas Exotic black cumin genotype showed maximum dry matter plant-1  at 85 and 100 DAS with higher N-P-K fertilizer levels  (2.30 and 4.97 g, respectively). Exotic variety produced maximum grain yield (3.43 g plant­­-1 and 2.30 t ha-1)  at higher level of N-P-K fertilizer, but BARI kalozira-1 (2.95 g plant­­-1  and 1.95 t ha-1), Faridpur local (2.80g plant­­-1  and 1.90 t ha-1) and Natore local (2.69 g plant­­-1  and 1.80 t ha-1) showed maximum yields at moderate N-P-K fertilizer levels. Among the test varieties of black cumin, the exotic variety showed better yield performance than the others.The Agriculturists 2015; 13(2) 97-104

  • Farmers’ Attitude Towards Using Agro-Chemicals in Rice Production: A
           Case in Laxmipur District of Bangladesh

    • Authors: Shaikh Shamim Hasan, Mithun Kumar Ghosh, Md. Shamsul Arefin, Sabina Sultana
      Pages: 105 - 112
      Abstract: The study was conducted to determine the farmers’ attitude towards using agro-chemicals in rice field in Laxmipur district of Bangladesh. Data were collected from seventy farmers following simple random sampling technique, complied and interpreted as per objectives of the study. Most of the farmers were middle aged, had primary level of education with small farm size, medium extension media contact with an average family annual income of about 1350 USD. About 87% of the farmers had low to medium knowledge on use of agro-chemicals in rice cultivation. About 74% of the farmers had moderately favorable attitude towards using agro-chemicals. Family annual income, extension media contact and knowledge on agro-chemical were the most important factors that affect the attitude of the farmers towards using agro-chemicals in crop production. Therefore it is recommended that arrangement of need based training with more extension contact for the farmers will be helpful to improve the behavior of using agro-chemicals.The Agriculturists 2015; 13(2) 105-112

  • Physiological and Structural Abnormalities of Coconut Plants
           (Cocos nucifera L.) at Different Stages of Growth and
           Plantation Sites under Low Temperature Condition in Bangladesh

    • Authors: M Mamunur Rashid, M Shamim Hasan, M H Rahman, Abu Noman Faruq Ahmmed, K M Khalequzzaman
      Pages: 113 - 119
      Abstract: Physiological and structural changes of coconut plants at different growth stages and plantation sites under low temperature conditions was investigated during 1997-98, 2002-03, 2005-06 and 2009-10 in the northern region of Bangladesh. Three growth stages viz. < 7, 7-15 and > 15 years and three locations viz. road side, near pond and near drain were selected for this study. Leaf area damage with characteristics lesions categorized into mildly damaged, moderately damaged and dead plants. Age and planting site revealed very significant differences. The highest percent of dead (49.84-58.49 %), moderately damaged (37.20-46.21 %) and mildly damaged plants (65.70-74.79 %) were found in road side, while the highest percent of dead plants (39.93-45.58 %), moderately (20.18-26.68 %) and mildly damaged plants (69.46-70.37 %) were found in above 15 years old plants. The lowest percent dead of plants (20.82, 18.27 and 19.55 %) were found in pond side and (11.74, 12.53 and 13.31 %) in the 7-15 years old plants. The mean temperature, sunshine hours and total precipitations remained below 16.88 °C, 10.25 hours and 11.7 cm, respectively during 1997-98, 2002-03 and 2009-10. The highest amount of potassium (0.57 me/100 g soil) was found in pond side soil, whereas the lowest amount of potassium (0.11 me/100g soil) was found in road side soil. It has been concluded that low temperature (below 16.88 °C), mean precipitation 11.7 cm and amount of potassium 0.11me/100 g in soil were responsible for severe damage of the coconut plants in the study area.The Agriculturists 2015; 13(2) 113-119

    • Authors: Shafayet Hossain, Golam Rasul, M A Khaleque Mian, M Moynul Haque, Abdul Mannan Akanda
      Pages: 120 - 132
      Abstract: An experiment was conducted at the research field of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Agricultural University (BSMRAU), Gazipur to determine the yield potential of twelve potato varieties for consecutive years during 2009-2011. The mean performance of varieties, generations and their interactions varied significantly. Field performance revealed that the plant height decreased in all the varieties Raja, Arinda, Patrones, Multa, Asterix, Granola, Felsina, Diamant, Cardinal, Provento, Ailsa and BARI TPS1 in the 4th  generation compared to 2nd  generation (Breeders’ Seed) except Raja and Arinda and it decreased compared to 3nd generation in Patrones and Felsina. The highest plant vigor was observed in Felsina and Asterix in the 1st generation, Patrones, Multa and Asterix in the 2nd generation and Raja and Granola in the 3rd generation. The highest number of stems per hill was produced by Patrones in all the three generations and the lowest was in Arinda in the 3rd generation. The highest number of hills per plot was recorded in Asterix and Granola and the lowest were in Ailsa and Raja. Higher tuber yield per hill was obtained from Ailsa, followed by Raja, Arinda and Felsina. Patrones produced higher number of tubers per plot in all the three generations while Ailsa produced the minimum which were followed by Felsina, Diamant, Raja and Arinda in all the generations. The yield of different varieties in the 2nd generation ranged from 11.94 t/ha (Ailsa) to 26.18 t/ha (Asterix) with an average yield of 19.06 t/ha. However, the highest yield was observed by Asterix followed by Granola, Arinda, Provento and Diamant in the 2nd generation.The Agriculturists 2015; 13(2) 120-132

  • Genetic Diversity of Drought Tolerant Upland Rice (Oryza
           sativa
    L.) Genotypes

    • Authors: S Hossain, M Salim, M S Akter, S Afroz, M S Noman
      Pages: 133 - 139
      Abstract: Genetic divergence of thirty three drought tolerant rice (Oryza sativa L.) genotypes were studied through Mohalanobis’s D2 and principal component analysis for twelve characters. The genotypes were grouped into seven clusters. The cluster I and II were comprised of the maximum number of genotypes (eight) in each followed by cluster V containing five genotypes. The highest inter-cluster distance was in between cluster III and I (368.64) indicating a wide genetic diversity between these two clusters followed by clusters VII and III (346.04). The lowest inter-cluster distance was in between cluster IV and II (42.46) followed by cluster VI and IV (63.29) indicating that the genotypes of these clusters were genetically close. The intra cluster distance in the entire seven clusters was less, which indicate that the genotypes within the same clusters were closely related. Considering the magnitude of genetic distance, contribution of different characters towards the total divergence and magnitude of cluster means for different characters performance, BR 7391-2B-7, BR 7392-2B-25, BR 6855-2B-11-3-4, BR 6855-2B-11-3-5  from cluster I, genotypes BR 6976-2B-15, and Morichbati from cluster III, genotypes BR 7187-2B-2-5 from cluster IV, genotype BR 7187-2B-2-3 and BR 7181-2B-35-2 from cluster V and genotypes BR 6855-2B-11-3-7 and BRRI dhan 42 from the cluster VII are likely to perform better if used in hybridization program.The Agriculturists 2015; 13(2) 133-139
