PROJECTS

  1. AMELIORATION OF WATER STRESS-DROUGHT ON RICE CULTIVATION THROUGH APPLICATION OF BIOCHAR AND BIOCHAR BASED COMPOST

    Funded by: University Grants Commission (UGC) Through IRT, HSTU, Dinajpur, Bangladesh (2017-2018)

    Position: Project Director

    Description: The experiments will be conducted in Department of Crop Physiology and Ecology laboratory, Hajee Mohammad Danesh Science & Technology University campus. Biochar and biochar based composts will be collected from the nearby rice husking mill and previously accomplished composting experiment at the Crop Physiology and Ecology department, respectively. The pot experiment will be carried out with three transplanted boro rice genotypes (BRRI dhan28, BRRI dhan55 and BRRI Dhan57) at the HSTU, Dinajpur, during January to April 2018, putting them at three different soil water level (100%,75% and 55% FC). The experiment will be three factorials (three water levels, two compost levels and three rice genotypes) and laid in completely randomized design (CRD) with three replications. A total of 108 pots (21 cm deep with 24 cm diameter at top) will be prepared with each of 8 kg of loamy textured soil collected from HSTU farm. Field capacity (100%) of the soils will be determined through gravimetric methods before use. 25 days old seedling will be transplanted in the puddle pot and each pot contained one seedling. Three water levels will be maintained until maturity adding required amount of water. Measured amount of water for (100% FC) will be multiplied by 1.00, 0.75 and 0.55 to know their amount of water required to maintain 100% FC, 75% FC and 55ü, respectively.

  2. EFFECTS OF BIOCHAR ON PHYSICOCHEMICAL PROPERTIES DURING POULTRY WASTES COMPOSTING

    Funded by: University Grants Commission (UGC) Through IRT, HSTU, Dinajpur, Bangladesh (2017-2018)

    Position: Project Director

    Description: The experiments will be conducted in Department of Crop Physiology and Ecology laboratory, Hajee Mohammad Danesh Science & Technology University campus. Poultry wastes other materials (bulking agent) will be collected from the nearby poultry farm and agro-industries, respectively. Aerobic composting method will be applied to treat the poultry wastes. Materials for composting: a) Poultry wastes b) Bulking agent (Saw dust and rice straw etc) including biochar (rice ash and saw dust) Three composting bin (sized 0.75m3) will be used for the composting process. Compost feed stock will be turned by a hand turner (mechanically). Every 15 days some physical & chemical parameters will be tested by sampling from the compost bin till maturation of compost.
