  • Genetic Diversity in Snake Gourd (Trichosanthes Cucumerina Var. Anguina
           L.)

    • Authors: MR Islam, MM Rahman, M Zakaria, MA Hoque, M Hasan
      Pages: 99 - 111
      Abstract: Multivariate analysis of fifty five genotypes of snake gourd was performed at the experimental field of Horticulture Department, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Agricultural University, Gazipur, Bangladesh from March to June, 2017 to estimate genetic diversity and choosing the potential parents for a successful hybridization program. The genotypes are grouped into six clusters according to an analysis of Principal Component Analysis (PCA) and Mahalanobis D2. The highest inter-cluster distance was noted between clusters I and VI (205.66) and the lowest between clusters II and V (38.87). The maximum intra-cluster distance was in cluster V (31.23) while the minimum was in cluster VI (15.00). Among the six clusters the IV was the most important cluster, which contains most of the desirable parent selection characters. Taking into account the magnitude of genetic divergence, cluster distance and agronomic performance, 7 parents could be selected from the clusters for the future hybridization program. Crossing among the genotypes of the selected clusters would produce high heterotic progeny. Bangladesh J. Agril. Res. 45(2): 99-111, June 2020

  • Development of Fertilizer Recommendation of Four Crops Grown Under the
           Cropping Pattern: Mustardboro- T. Aus- T. Aman in Aez - 8

    • Authors: A Barman, MM Masud, S Akhter, MA Hossain, S Shome
      Pages: 113 - 123
      Abstract: A field experiment on mustard- boro- T. aus- T. aman cropping pattern was conducted in the soil of Jamalpur (AEZ - 8) during two consecutive years 2014- 2015 and 2015-2016 with the objectives of finding out suitable fertilizer requirements for a four crops pattern mustard- boro- T. aus- T. aman. The experiment was conducted in RARS (AEZ-8), Jamalpur. There were eight treatments in the study viz. T1: 100% soil test based (STB) NPKSZnB, T2: T1 + 25% N, T3: T1 + 25% NP, T4: T1 + 25% NK, T5: T1 + 25% PK, T6: T1 + 25% NPK, T7: 75% of T1, T8: Native fertility. The experiment was laid out in randomized complete block design with three replications. Data revealed that the seed yield of mustard, grain yield boro, T. aus and T. aman were significantly influenced by application of 25% extra NPK consistently. The highest seed yield of mustard and grain yield of boro, T. aus and T. aman was obtained from the T6 treatment where 25% additional NPK was added over the 100% STB. The lowest yield was recorded for the native fertility treatment in both years. Bangladesh J. Agril. Res. 45(2): 113-123, June 2020

  • Effect of Foliar Application of Boron on the Yield And Quality of Potato

    • Authors: MW Rahman, MM Islam, MS Alam, SM Sharifuzzaman, MAK Mian
      Pages: 125 - 135
      Abstract: Foliar application of boron on the yield and storability of potato was evaluated at Breeder Seed Production Centre, Debiganj during two consecutive years 2013-14 and 2014-15. Six different concentration of boron such as: 0 ppm B (T1), 70 ppm B (T2), 140 ppm B (T3), 210 ppm B (T4), 280 ppm B (T5) and 350 ppm B (T6) were tested. The maximum yield 35.9 and 35.3 t ha-1 in 2013-14 and 2014-15, respectively was found when plants treated with 210 ppm B as foliar application (T4). The highest dry matter content of tuber was obtained from T4. T4 (210 ppm B) also showed the minimum rottage loss of tuber. The highest gross margin and marginal benefit cost ratio were recorded in the same treatment. Foliar application of 210 ppm B can be recommended for economically potato production in Tista Meander Floodplain Soil. Bangladesh J. Agril. Res. 45(2): 125-135, June 2020

  • Baseline Survey on Existing Status of Fried Potato Chips From Processing
           to Marketing in Selected Locations of Bangladesh

    • Authors: MGF Chowdhury, MHH Khan, AA Sabuz, A Alam, MM Molla
      Pages: 137 - 144
      Abstract: The baseline survey was conducted with a view to generate information on existing status of fried potato chips from processing to marketing in selected locations of Bangladesh. The baseline information was collected from seven selected districts namely Dhaka, Gazipur, Tangail, Mymensingh, Bogura, Munshigonj and Jashore. Fifteen hawkers and five producers were randomly selected to collect the information by the pre-tested questionnaire from each location both from producer to consumer. Most of the hawkers of Bogura was above 40 years old (80%) followed by Dhaka who were 25-39 years old (60%). In Bangladesh, eighty percent people were above 40 years old engaged in processing fried potato chips. All aged people in Bogura preferred fried potato chips (100%) whereas maximum child in Jashore (80%) liked fried potato chips. Bogura and Munshigonj people were unknown about healthiness knowledge of fried chips consumption. Bogura, Jashore and Munshigonj processors/producers were hawkers and they prepared the product and distributed the products to the market or direct involved in sale. Fried chips processing people in the survey area used deep frying technique (100%). Soya bean oil used for deep oil frying of potato chips by 80% small processors. Most of the respondents changed their frying oil during frying when frying oil turned into cloudy. Bangladesh J. Agril. Res. 45(2): 137-144, June 2020

  • Quality Characteristics and Sensory Evaluation Of Cabbage (Brassica
           Oleracea L. Var. Capitata) And Lime (Citrus Aurantiifolia) Ready to Serve
           Ts Beverage

    • Authors: J Inthuja, T Mahendran, MBF Jemziya
      Pages: 157 - 164
      Abstract: The experiment was conducted to formulate the low calorie cabbage-lime blend Ready-to-Serve (RTS) functional beverage. Considering the results of preliminary studies, six formulations of the low calorie functional RTS beverage were prepared by blending different ratios of cabbage and lime juice (27:3, 24:6, 21:9, 18:12 and 15:15) including control, where only cabbage juice was added. The prepared formulations were subjected to nutritional and sensory evaluation after the formulations were done. Nutritional parameters including titrable acidity, pH, vitamin C, total sugar and total soluble solids were analysed. Sensory attributes of color, aroma, taste, appearance (cloudiness) and overall acceptability were evaluated using a seven point hedonic scale. The nutritional analysis of the fresh low calorie RTS beverage showed the increasing trend in titrable acidity (from 0.32% to 1.3% as citric acid), vitamin C (from 8.35 mg/100 ml to 17.75 mg/100 ml), total sugar (from 2.75% to 4.99%), and total soluble solids (from 4.64 ° Brix to 5.17 °Brix) with the increase of lime juice from 3% to 15%. The pH was reduced when the lime juice concentration increased. The sensory assessment of fresh low calorie RTS beverage revealed that there were significant (p < 0.05) differences among the sensory attributes. The highest overall acceptability was observed in the formulation with 18% cabbage juice and 12% lime juice with ideal functional qualities. Bangladesh J. Agril. Res. 45(2): 157-164, June 2020

  • Effect of Planting Date on Phenotypic Characters, Harvested Leaves and
           Seed Yield of Mustard Green (Lai Shak) In Sylhet Region

    • Authors: MI Nazrul, ST Zannat
      Pages: 165 - 174
      Abstract: A field trial was conducted at farming system research and development (FSRD) site, South SurmainSylhet under AEZ-20 during two consecutive years of 2017- 18 and 2018-19 to find out the suitable planting date for successful and economic production of leaves and seed yield of mustard green (Brassica juncea). The experiment was laid out in randomized complete block design having five different dates of seedling transplant viz. 15 October, 30 October, 15 November, 30 November and 15 December with four dispersed replications.The seedlings transplanted on 15 November recorded significantly the highestnumber of harvested leaves plant-1, weight of single leaf, harvested leaf yield (35.07 t ha-1), siliqua plant -1 and weight of 1000-seed and seed yield (1.38 t ha-1) of mustard green. The highest gross return (Tk. 862800 ha-1) and net return (Tk. 627300 ha-1) with benefit cost ratio (BCR) of 3.66 was obtained from 15 November planting followed by 30 October planting. Conversely, the lowest gross return (Tk.611620 ha-1), net return (Tk. 376120 ha-1) and BCR (2.59) were recorded from 15 December planting. So, last October to mid-November planting would be suitable for economic production of leaves and seed yield of brown mustard in Sylhet region of Bangladesh. Bangladesh J. Agril.

  • Profitability Analysis of Cultivation of Banana Cultivars Sabri and Sagar
           in Some Areas Of Narsingdi District

    • Authors: M Mohiuddin, M Rashidul Hasan, MA Monayem Miah
      Pages: 175 - 183
      Abstract: An attempt was made to investigate the input use pattern, profitability and factors affecting the banana cultivation. A total of 60 banana growing farmers taking each 30 Sabri and 30 Sagar growers were selected from Narsingdi district for collecting data using a pre-tested interview schedule during mid-September to mid-October, 2019. The study revealed that farmers used almost all types of inputs like human labour, organic and inorganic fertilizers, pesticides, and irrigation water in banana cultivation. The cultivations of both Sabri and Sagar variety were highly profitable at farm level since the net returns (Tk.4,29,280/ha and Tk.2,73,995/ha) and BCRs (2.66 and 2.05) were very high. The coefficients of production function revealed that banana sucker, land preparation and Muriate of Potash (MoP) fertilizer positively influenced the yield of Sabri variety banana, whereas only MoP influenced the yield of Sagar variety. The major problems of banana cultivation were lacking of skilled labour, attack of diseases, and high price of fertilizers. Bangladesh J. Agril. Res. 45(2): 175-183, June 2020

  • Bio Rational Management of Leaf Eating Caterpillars Of Cabbage

    • Authors: MS Sultana, MF Khatun, SN Alam
      Pages: 185 - 198
      Abstract: The study was carried out to evaluate some biorational approaches for the management of two leaf eating cabbage caterpillars (S. litura and P. xylostella) at three planting dates of cabbage. We did not find the population of Pieris brassicae in this study. In the 1st planting, the lowest percent head infestation (3.79%) were recorded in the pheromone mass trap+ Bt+ SNPV treated plot followed by hand picking + pheromone for trapping S. litura and P. xylostella+ spraying Bt (5.79%) and pheromone for trapping S. litura and P. xylostella+ spraying Bt treated plots (6.01%) as against 10.35% infestation in untreated control. Similarly, the lowest percent head infestation were recorded in the pheromone + Bt+ SNPV treated plot from 2nd and 3rd planting dates 10.85% and 16.33%, respectively. P. xylostella larvae was not found at 1st planting. The highest percent reduction of head infestation over control was recorded from pheromone mass trap+ Bt+ SNPV treated plots which were 63.4%, 49.7% and 46.62% respectively at three planting dates. Significantly the highest marketable yield (56.86 t ha-1)) and highest BCR (4.32) was recorded from pheromone + Bt+ SNPV treated plot in three date of planting. Interaction of pheromone mass trap+ Bt+ SNPV and 1st planting of cabbage was proved to be the most effective management approaches against two leaf eating caterpillars of cabbage. The population of leaf eating caterpillar of cabbage at elarly planting was much less. Thus, it does not require too much spraying to suppress leaf eating caterpillar of cabbage at early planting.

      Abstract: Strawberry plants were grown in five different mixtures of coco-dust and gravel to compare their influences under glasshouse condition at hydroponics and controlled environment agriculture research facilities of Olericulture division, HRC, BARI, Gazipur during winter season. The experimental design was completely randomized block design with 10 replicated plants/pots. The plants were supplied with 25% ‘Enshi-shoo’ nutrient solution in every alternative day. Strawberry plants were grown in five different mixtures of coco-dust and gravel substrates as T1 (100:0), T2 (75:25), T3 (50:50), T4 (25:75) and T5 (0:100). Results showed that coco-dust and gravel substrate had significant influence on number of leaves, root length and root dry weight. Root length was found to be hampered greatly in plants grown with sole gravel substrate because of its poor moisture holding capacity. Fruit yield per plant was higher in T3 (50:50 of cocodust and gravel) compared to other substrate mixtures. The present study revealed that the growth, yield and fruit qualities were significantly higher in plants grown in 50:50 of coco-dust and gravel compared to their other mixture substrates.
