  2. Performance of poultry litter based compost on the production and physiochemical attributes of tomato

    Funded by: University Grants Commission through Institute of Research and Training (IRT),HSTU 2019-2020

    Position: Project Director

    Description: ABSTRACT An experiment was conducted in the research field of the Department Crop Physiology and Ecology Department, Hajee Mohammad Danesh Science and Technology University, Dinajpur, during November, 2019 to April, 2020 to find out the effect of poultry litter based composts on the performance of tomato. The experiment was laid out in two factors Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with three replications. Two tomato varieties, namely BARI Tomato 4 and Ratan with seven fertilizations i.e. C0= Control, C1=20 ton ha-1compost (poultry litter +ash), C2= 30 ton ha-1 compost (poultry litter +ash), C3= 20 ton ha-1compost (poultry litter +saw dust), C4= 30 ton ha-1compost (poultry litter +saw dust), C5= 20 ton ha-1compost (poultry litter + kitchen waste+cow dung) and C6= 30 ton ha-1compost (poultry litter + kitchen waste+cow dung). Data were collected on plant height, number of leaf plant-1, number of branches plant-1, days to 50% flowering, days to 50% fruit setting, number of fruit plant-1, yield plot-1 (kg), diameter of fruit (cm), length of fruit (cm) and stem diameter (cm). Between the studied varieties, BARI Tomato 4 performed better and the compost treatment C6 (30 ton ha-1compost based on poultry litter + kitchen waste+cow dung) performed better than those of other compost treatment. Though the application of compost increases the number and quantity of the studied traits, but the treatment combination V1C6 (BARI Tomato 4 with 30 ton ha-1 of compost based on poultry litter + kitchen waste+cow dung) performed better than those of other treatment combinations.

  4. Management of water stress on rice cultivation through poultry litter based compost

    Funded by: University Grants Commission through Institute of Research and Training (IRT),HSTU

    Position: Project Director

    Description: An experiment was carried out at the research field of Crop Physiology and Ecology Department, Hajee Mohammad Danesh Science and Technology University, Dinajpur during January 2017 to May 2017 to evaluate the effects of poultry litter based composts on morpho-physiological, yield and yield contributing characters of BRRI dhan28, a mega rice variety of Boro season in Bangladesh, under different water stress conditions. The plants were grown in pots, and the experiment was laid out in a factorial complete randomized design (CRD) with three replications. Factor A included three levels of fertilizer and compost amendments i.e. control (recommended inorganic fertilizer), compost (10 t ha-1) + inorganic fertilizer, compost (20 t ha-1) + without inorganic fertilizers, and factor B comprised of three water levels (continuous flooding, 100% field capacity and 75% field capacity). Different parameters such as plant height, tiller number, leaf number, leaf area, chlorophyll content, proline content and yield contributing characters were measured during the experiment. Most of the measured parameters were significantly influenced by irrigation levels with different fertilizer and compost amendments. The highest plant height and leaf number per hill were found in the treatment of compost (10 t ha-1) + inorganic fertilizer with 100% field capacity, though the maximum tiller number were produced by the interaction of control with flooding irrigation. The total chlorophyll was observed more in flag leaf by the interaction of control with 100% field capacity. The Proline content was observed more in flag leaf by the interaction of control with 75% field capacity. Relative water content was found more with the interaction of compost (10 t ha-1) + inorganic fertilizer with 75% field capacity. The highest effective tiller number hill-1 was found from control (19.33) at harvest. It was also observed that irrigation with 75% field capacity produced the lowest effective tiller (15.89) hill-1 at harvest. The longest panicle length (23.12 cm) was observed with the combined effect of compost (10 t ha-1) +inorganic with 75% field capacity. Thousand grain weight was found highest (18.83 g) in the interaction of compost (20 t ha-1 + without inorganic) with 75% field capacity. The interaction of compost (20 t ha-1 + without inorganic) and flooding irrigation gave the highest grain yield (33.17 g pot-1), which was statistically similar to the treatment of compost (10 t ha-1 + inorganic) with flooding irrigation. The highest harvest index was found from compost (20 t ha-1 + without inorganic) with flooding irrigation.

  5. 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.
