  • Effect of drought stress on gas exchange characteristics of four soybean

    • Authors: JA Chowdhury, MA Karim, QA Khaliq, AU Ahmed, MSA Khan
      Pages: 195 - 205
      Abstract: An experiment was conducted in a venylhouse at the environmental stress site of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Agricultural University, Gazipur during September to December 2012 to determine the changes of photosynthesis and some related traits under drought stress in soybean genotypes. Four studied genotypes viz. Shohag, BARI Soybean 6 and BD2331 (relatively stress tolerant) and BGM2026 (susceptible) were tested against two water regimes such as water stress and non-stress. Results indicated that gas exchange characteristics were positively correlated with plant growth. Photosynthesis and stomatal conductance showed more reduction in susceptible genotypes than the tolerant ones. Transpiration rate was found minimal in tolerant genotypes. Changes in leaf growth attributes of the four selected genotypes were compared under drought (water) stress conditions which is one of the major plant parts related to gas exchange. Generally, drought stress decreased the leaf area more in susceptible genotype than tolerant genotype. From the result, genotype BGM2026 which recorded the lowest photosynthesis, stomatal conductance, leaf area but highest transpiration rate was considered as drought susceptible whereas BARI Soybean-6, Shohag and BD2331 were more drought stress tolerant which have better mechanisms of drought tolerance.Bangladesh J.

    • Authors: MH Rahimi, S Houshmand, M Khodambashi, B Shiran, S Mohammady
      Pages: 207 - 219
      Abstract: To evaluate the effect of drought stress on agro-morphological traits of lentil, an experiment was conducted using 168 F6:7 inbred lines along with their parents in RCB design with three replications. Analysis of variance revealed significant differences among lines in terms of all studied characters in both normal and stress conditions. Comparing with non-stress condition, drought stress reduced pod weight per plant, seed yield and pod number per plant to 54%, 45.3% and 42.2%, respectively. Correlation coefficient of biological yield, pod number per plant, pod weight per plant and harvest index (HI) with seed yield was positive and significant. Stepwise regression analysis showed that biological yield, HI, pod weights per plant and leaf length determined 87.6% of seed yield variations and biological yield had the most function. Maximum values of genotypic and phenotypic coefficient of variations were observed for seed yield, pod weight per plant and pod number per plant. The highest values of heritability found in leaf width (h2= 0.77), seed diameter (h2= 0.69) and plant height (h2= 0.66). Evaluation of stress tolerance index (STI) showed that lines 125 and 160 were the most tolerant lines, which could be recommended for cultivation in areas that subject to terminal drought stress.Bangladesh J.

    • Authors: MK Jamil, MM Rahman, MM Hossain, MT Hossain, AJM S Karim
      Pages: 221 - 234
      Abstract: An experiment with Hippeastrum flower (Hippeastrum hybridum Hort.) cv. ‘Apple Blossom’ comprising three sucrose concentrations viz. 0 (control), 2 and 4 % and five aluminium sulphate concentrations viz. 0 (control), 0.25, 0.50, 0.75 and 1.0 mM at the Horticulture Laboratory of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Agricultural University, Bangladesh during the period from April 01 to April 30, 2009. The experiment was laid out in a Completely Randomized Design (CRD) with three replications. Sucrose, aluminium sulphate and their combinations had significant influence on most of the parameters studied. Transpiration loss and water uptake ratio decreased significantly with the increased sugar levels and aluminium sulphate upto 0.75 mM beyond which they were increased. Transpiration loss and water uptake ratio was found minimum in the vase solution containing 4% sucrose (0.78) and 0.75 mM aluminium sulphate (0.80), which ultimately resulted in an enhanced vase life (9.2 days for sucrose and 9.11 days for aluminium sulphate) of cut Hippeastrum flower. A linear relationship between water uptake and vase life of flowers was found (y = 0.056x + 5.791). Sucrose 4% and aluminium sulphate 0.75 mM in combination gave maximum total water uptake, maximum days to onset of deterioration, the highest average fresh weight of single scape at 6th and 10th day after setting the trial. Transpiration loss and solution uptake ratio was found maximum in the combination of 4% sucrose and 0.75 mM aluminium sulphate (0.48) with the longest vase life of 10.33 days of cut Hippeastrum flower cv. ‘Apple Blossom’.Bangladesh J.

  • Study on morpho-physiological traits in spring wheat (Triticum aestivum
           L.) Under rainfed condition

    • Authors: M Rahman, NCD Barma, BK Biswas, AA Khan, J Rahman
      Pages: 235 - 250
      Abstract: Nine morphological and physiological traits were taken to assess genetic parameters, association between the traits and grain yield and partition correlation of yield with other traits, which were purposefully considered as the important strategy for the investigation. Therefore, the main objective of the present investigation was to find out suitable morpho-physiological traits that could be invariably used for the yield improvement of spring wheat grown under drought stress condition. Thirty wheat diverse genotypes were evaluated under drought stress field condition in Alpha Lattice Design with three replications. The study revealed wide range of variability and high broad sense heritability for most of the traits (early ground coverage, canopy temperature, peduncle length, relative water content, number of spikes per m2 and 1,000-grain weight). Genetic advance in percent of mean suggested that there is enough scope for further improvement of genotypes for the characters studied. Correlation studies exhibited that grain yield was positively and significantly associated with early ground coverage and 1000-grain weight. The path analysis also revealed a maximum direct effect on grain yield contributed by 1000-grain weight. Early ground coverage and 1000-grain weight had a significant and spikes per m2 had positive indirect effect on grain yield. Therefore, these three traits were found to be most important for wheat breeding under drought stress. As these traits can be evaluated quickly and easily, hence breeders can choose these traits for selecting potential wheat genotypes for further breeding programs.Bangladesh J. Agril.

    • Authors: MA Rouf, MA Rahim, MA Siddique, MB Meah
      Pages: 251 - 258
      Abstract: The experiment was conducted to study the effect of honey bee pollination and curd scooping on seed production of cauliflower (Brassica oleracea var. botrytis L.) cv. ‘Poushali’. Eighteen combinations of treatments comprising three types of pollination viz., open pollination (natural pollination), using bees for pollination inside net (planned pollination) and plants inside net without bees (control) and six kinds of curd scooping viz., 25%, 50% and 75% of curd cutting, cross curd cutting, central curd cutting and no curd cutting (control). Honey bee (Apis cerana L.) was used as pollinator. Seed yield and yield attributes were significantly influenced by both factors and their combinations. Central curd cutting influenced early flowering and siliqua maturity compared to other curd cutting treatments. Planned honey bee pollination was found to inflict maximum impact on the seed production of cauliflower with an increase in seed yield of 45.46% and 23.17% higher over plants grown inside net without bees and open pollination, respectively. Central curd scooping increased 26.52% higher yield than that of no curd cutting treatment. Planned bee pollination and central curd cutting independently as well as in combination gave the maximum yield attributes of seed viz., primary and secondary flower stalks/plant, number of siliquas/plant, length of siliqua, number of seeds/siliqua,1000 seed weight, seed yield and seed germination percent of cauliflower. Planned pollination coupled with central curd cutting gave the maximum seed yield of 607.43 kg/ha in cauliflower.Bangladesh J. Agril. Res. 41(2): 251-258, June 2016

  • Variability and path co-efficient for yield and yield components in rice

    • Authors: Sk Sameera, T Srinivas, AP Rajesh, V Jayalakshmi, PJ Nirmala
      Pages: 259 - 271
      Abstract: Twenty five rice varieties were evaluated for their variability with regard to yield and yield components. Estimates of heritability and genetic advance as per cent mean were also obtained for the above traits. In addition, studies on character associations and path co-efficients were also undertaken. The results revealed high variability, heritability and genetic advance as per cent mean for productive tillers per plant, number of tillers per plant, number of grains per panicle and number of filled grains per panicle, while days to maturity was recorded with high heritability coupled with low genetic advance as per cent of mean. Further, yield was observed to be positively associated with number of tillers per plant, productive tillers per plant, number of grains per panicle and number of filled grains per panicle. Among these, number of tillers per plant, productive tillers per plant and number of filled grains per panicle were noticed to exert high direct effects on grain yield per plant. High indirect effects of most of the traits were noticed mostly through productive tillers per plant indicating importance of the trait as selection criteria in crop yield improvement programmes.Bangladesh J.

  • Genetic diversity of muskmelon using multivariate technique

    • Authors: S Rahman, MAK Miah, H Rahman
      Pages: 273 - 286
      Abstract: An experiment was conducted at the experimental farm of Plant Genetic Resources Centre (PGRC), Bangladesh Agricultural Research Institute (BARI), Gazipur in 2011 to estimate genetic diversity through multivariate technique. Based on multivariate analysis and application of covariance matrix for nonhierarchical clustering, 64 genotypes of muskmelon were grouped into six clusters to indicate the existence of considerable diversity among the genotypes. The cluster IV was consisted of single genotypes (BD2303). The highest number of genotypes possessed in Cluster I. The first principal axis largely accounted for the variation among the genotypes which alone contributed 25.65% of the variations. The highest inter genotypic distance (2.878) was observed between the genotypes BD2303 and BD2313 followed by the genotypes BD2303 and BD2314 (2.808).The highest intra cluster distance was computed for cluster III (0.839) followed by cluster I (0.751). Cluster VI showed the least intra cluster distance which indicated that the genotypes in this cluster were more or less homogeneous. The inter cluster distances were larger than the intra cluster distances suggesting wider genetic diversity among the genotypes of different clusters. Cluster mean pointed out the heavier fruit in cluster IV (2533.3g). The size of this cluster was also far different from all other clusters. Similarly, the highest total fruit weight per plant was found in cluster IV (13.5 kg) which was also far different from other clusters. So it revealed that genotypes of this cluster could be used for developing high yielding variety. Cluster VI showed the highest brix reading (5.6%). Therefore, the genotypes of this cluster could be used for the development of sweet muskmelon variety. Hybridization between the genotypes of cluster IV and those of cluster VI could develop high yielding sweet muskmelon variety(s).Bangladesh J. Agril. Res. 41(2): 273-286, June 2016

    • Authors: AKM Z Rahman, MA Haque, SN Alam, K Begum, D Sarker
      Pages: 287 - 296
      Abstract: Five IPM packages viz. T1=Pheromone trap @ 70 traps ha-1 + Neem seed kernel extract @ 50 g L-1 of water; T2=Pheromone trap + HaNPV @ 0.4 ml L-1 of water and Bt @ 2.0 g L-1 of water; T3=Pheromone trap + Neem seed kernel extract + HaNPV and Bt; T4=Pheromone trap + Trichogramma chillnis @ 50,000 ha-1 and Bracon hebetor @ 1200 ha-1; T5=Pheromone trap + Neem seed kernel extract + T. chilonis and B. hebetor were evaluated against H. armigera in tomato. The lowest fruit infestation by number (12.55%) was attained from T5 followed by T2 (15.49%). Significantly the lowest fruit infestation by weight was found in treatment T2 (10.60%) followed by T5 (11.73%). The highest yield was obtained from T5 (29.74 t ha-1) followed by T2 (26.77 t ha-1). The highest marginal benefit cost ratio was achieved from T2 (3.41) followed by T5 (3.35). Hence, considering benefit cost ratio, T2 and T5 packages may be the effective tools for managing H. armigera in tomato.Bangladesh J. Agril. Res. 41(2): 287-296, June 2016

  • Effect of storage duration on the stored pupae of parasitoid Bracon
           hebetor (Say) and its impact on parasitoid quality

    • Authors: MS Alam, MZ Alam, SN Alam, MRU Miah, MIH Mian
      Pages: 297 - 310
      Abstract: The ecto-endo larval parasitoid, Bracon hebetor (Say) is an important biocontrol agent. Effective storage methods for B. hebetor are essential for raising its success as a commercial bio-control agent against lepidopteran pests. The study was undertaken to determine the effect of storage duration on the pupae of Bracon hebetor in terms of pupal survival, adult emergence, percent parasitism, female and male longevity, female fecundity and sex ratio. Three to four days old pupae were stored for 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 weeks at 4 ± 1oC. The ranges of time for adult emergence from stored pupae, production of total adult, survivability of pupae, parasitism of host larvae by the parasitoid, longevity of adult female and male and fecundity were 63.0 -7.5 days, 6.8-43.8/50 host larvae, 13.0-99.5%, 0.0 -97.5%, 0.00-20.75 days, 0.00-17.25 days and 0.00- 73.00/50 female, respectively. The time of adult emergence and mortality of pupae increased but total number of adult emergence, survivability of pupae, longevity of adult female and male decreased gradually with the progress of storage period of B. hebetor pupae. The prevalence of male was always higher than that of female. Therefore, short-term storage of B. hebetor pupae could be stored for up to 4 weeks without disturbing the functioning of the parasitoid. It is important for sustaining and accumulating large numbers of parasitoids in mass rearing programs and subsequent use of field application.Bangladesh J. Agril. Res. 41(2): 297-310, June 2016

      Pages: 311 - 321
      Abstract: Seven lines of baby corn were crossed with 3 testers in a Line × Tester (L × T) mating design and the resulting 21 crosses along with parents and standard check ‘Baby Star’ were evaluated to develop high yielding baby corn hybrids during rabi, 2014-15. Variance due to sca was larger than gca variance for all the characters indicating the preponderance of non additive gene action in the expression of various traits. Among the parents, BCP/S4-29, BCP/S4-31 and tester VS/S3-1 and VS/S3-26 were found as good general combiners for baby corn yield and important yield contributing characters. Considering baby corn yield, number of cobs/plant and other performances, the crosses BCP/S4- 2×VS/S3-1, BCP/S4-5×VS/S3-8, BCP/S4-10×VS/S3-8, BCP/S4-22×VS/S3-26 and BCP/S4-29×VS/S3-1 were selected as promising baby corn hybrids.Bangladesh J.

  • Effect of foliar application of zinc on yield of wheat grown by avoiding
           irrigation at different growth stages

    • Authors: S Sultana, HM Naser, NC Shil, S Akhter, RA Begum
      Pages: 323 - 334
      Abstract: A field experiment was carried out at micronutrient experimental field of Soil Science Division, BARI, Joydebpur, Gazipur to study the effect of foliar application of zinc on yield of wheat (BARI gom-25) grown by skipping irrigation at different growth stages of the crop. The experiment was designed in a split plot design on sixteen treatments comprising four irrigation treatments (regular irrigation, skipped irrigation at crown root initiation, skipped irrigation at booting stage and skipped irrigation at grain filling stages of wheat growth) and four foliar application of zinc (0.0%, 0.02%, 0.04% and 0.06% of zinc). Zinc Sulphate Monohydrate (ZnSO4. H2O) was used as a source of Zn. The interaction effect of irrigation and foliar application of zinc significantly influenced the yield and yield components of wheat. The highest yield (5.59 t ha-1) was recorded in normal irrigation which was identical with skipping irrigation at flowering and heading stage with 0.06% foliar application of zinc. Skipping irrigation at crown root initiation stage had the most negative effect on growth and yield. Skipping irrigation at flowering and heading stage of wheat with 0.04% foliar application of zinc gave the identical yield in regular irrigation with 0.04% and 0.06% foliar application of zinc. Thus, foliar application of zinc played a major role on yield and yield components of wheat at later stages of growth. The response of foliar application of Zn was positive and quadrate in nature. The optimum dose was appeared as 0.04% foliar application of zinc for grain yield of wheat in the study area of Joydebpur, Gazipur (AEZ-28).Bangladesh J. Agril. Res. 41(2): 323-334, June 2016

  • Inheritance mechanism of yield and yield components in tomato

    • Authors: MA Goffar, A Ahmed, GMA Halim
      Pages: 335 - 344
      Abstract: A set of 9x9 half diallel cross comprising of promising genotypes was studied to analyze the inheritance pattern of yield components in tomato. Hayman’s analysis of variance (ANOVA) indicated importance of both additive and nonadditive genetic components for all the thirteen yield contributing characters. The ANOVA showed unidirectional dominance, asymmetrical gene distribution and residual dominance effects for all the characters studied. Five out of the thirteen characters viz., number of flowers/cluster, individual fruit weight, fruit breadth, number of locules and number of seeds/fruit followed the simple additive-dominance genetic model. The rest of the characters showed non-allelic gene interaction or epistasis. P6 had most of the dominant genes for both number of flowers/cluster and number of locules, while P3 contained most dominant genes for individual fruit weight and P5 possessed that for both fruit breadth and number of seeds/fruit. The estimates of components of variance demonstrated involvement of both additive and dominant components in the inheritance of all those five characters. The distribution of dominant and recessive genes was equal in the parents for only fruit breadth. There was drastic influence of environment on these characters following simple additive-dominance genetic model except fruit breadth.Bangladesh J. Agril. Res. 41(2): 335-344, June 2016

  • Effect of fertilizer on coriander seed production

    • Authors: MM Kamrozzaman, S Ahmed, AFMR Quddus
      Pages: 345 - 352
      Abstract: A field experiment on coriander (Coriandrum sativum L.) was carried out during rabi seasons of 2011-12 and 2012-13 in Low Ganges River Flood Plain Soil under AEZ-12 at Farming System Research and Development Site, Hatgobindapur, Faridpur to find out optimum and economic doses of fertilizers for coriander (var. BARI Dhania 1) for sustainable higher yield and to update balanced fertilizer recommendation for target yield. The experiment was laid out in a randomized complete block design with 8 treatments viz. T1=N118P47K26S10Zn2.2B0.8 Kgha-1, T2= N147P47K26S10Zn2.2B0.8 Kg ha-1, T3= N147P59K26S10Zn2.2B0.8 Kg ha-1, T4= N147P47K32S10Zn2.2B0.8 Kgha-1, T5= N118P59K32S10Zn2.2B0.8 Kgha-1, T6= N147P59K32S10Zn2.2B0.8 Kgha-1, T7= N88P35K19S8Zn1.6B0.6 Kgha-1 and T8= Native nutrient (Control). The highest seed yield (1373 kg ha-1) was obtained from the treatment T3 which was statistically similar with T1, T2, T3, T4, T5 and T6 treatments. The soil test based treatment T1 produced 1311 kg yield ha-1 and yield difference of ther added fertilizer treatment with T1 was only 5%. The fertilizer added treatments didn’t exert the significant difference with soil based treatment (T1) on yield and yield contributing characters. However, T1 treatment appeared to be the best suited combination because of its higher gross margin Tk 41,769 ha-1, capability in reducing nutrient cost Tk 13106 ha-1 and the highest marginal rate of return (MRR) (108%) whereas treatment T3 covered 21% MRR and the highest nutrient cost among the treatments and hence treatment, N118P47K26S10Zn2.2B0.8 Kg ha-1 (100% NPKSZnB from STB dose) may be recommended for coriander seed production in the study area.Bangladesh J.

  • Development of mouza level databases of potato in Munshigong, Bogra &
           Rangpur district

    • Authors: MA Uddin, KS Rahman, MM Rahman, N Mohammad, S Nasrin
      Pages: 353 - 364
      Abstract: A study was conducted to build the mouza and union level databases of potato during 2011-12 using both primary and secondary data. Primary data were collected from potato growers of unions of three upazilas, namely Vober Char, (Gazaria, Munshigonj), Atmul, (Shibganj, Bogra) and Mittipur (Pirganj, Rangpur), respectively. Mouza, union, upazila and district level digitized maps of Bangladesh were used in the program. GIS, GPS, MIS, Modem and mobile phone technologies were used. Databases of different parameters such as area, production, yield, and varietal information etc. of potato were obtained. Mouza have been used as the smallest unit of land use management for agriculture because it has administrative boundary and social identity. Average yield of potato was 17.45 t/ha in the study areas during 2011-12. Out of total potato areas 69.06% was cultivated by HYVs and the rest 30.94% by local varieties. Out of 46 HYVs released by BARI, 11 varieties were cultivated in the study areas during the same period. Databases and maps developed by data collection from root level (Farmer’s field, mouza, block and union etc.) may help to identify variety wise area coverage of potato.Bangladesh J. Agril.

      Pages: 365 - 376
      Abstract: An experiment was carried out in 6x6 diallel crosses for combining ability analysis for grain yield, maturity and growth parameters in maize. Analysis of variance for combining ability showed that mean square value due to GCA & SCA were highly significant for all characters except SCA in days to tasseling and days to maturity indicated that all but two traits were governed by both additive and non-additive gene action. Variances due to GCA were much higher in magnitude than SCA indicated additive gene effects were much more important for all characters except cob length, thousand grain weight and ear height. The Parent P5 was the best general combiner for yield and most of the yield contributing characters. The Parent P1 & P2 were best general combiner for both dwarf and earliness. The crosses showing significant SCA effects for yield involving average x average, average x low and low x low general combining parents. The crosses P3xP6 & P4xP5 showed either significantly or numerically higher heterosis than checks BHM-5, BHM- 7 & BHM-9 for yield.Bangladesh J. Agril. Res. 41(2): 365-376, June 2016

  • Screening of mungbean (Vigna radiata L. Wilczek) genotypes under nutrient
           stress in soil

    • Authors: MA Razzaque, MM Haque, MM Rahman, MM Bazzaz, MSA Khan
      Pages: 377 - 386
      Abstract: A pot experiment was conducted at the Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Agricultural University, Gazipur during kharif season of 2010 to investigate the genetic divergence of some mungbean genotypes under nutrient stress condition using Mahalanobis’ statistic (D2) and principal component analysis. Analysis of variance showed significant difference for all the characters. Results of multivariate analysis revealed that 200 mungbean genotypes formed five clusters at nutrient stress condition where cluster II had the maximum genotypes (83) followed by cluster I (65), cluster III (30), cluster IV (9) and then cluster V (13). The highest intra-cluster distance was observed between cluster IV containing lowest 9 genotype and cluster V containing 13 genotypes. The highest inter-cluster distance was observed between cluster IV and III and lowest was observed between cluster V and Cluster I. Cluster III had the highest cluster mean for total dry matter, root dry mass, pods per plant, seeds per pod, 1000 seed weight and seed yield. Considering cluster distance and other agronomic performance the genotypes IPSA 1, IPSA 12, IPSA 5 and others genotypes from cluster III may be considered for better performance under nutrient stress condition.Bangladesh J.
