Bacterial leaf spot caused by Xanthomonas campestris pv. Cucurbitae (Xcc) is an important disease of bottle gourd that hampers quality production. This study was conducted at Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University from October 2016 to January 2017, toinvestigate how exogenous application of silicon influenced bacterial leaf spot disease of bottle gourd. Applied silicon (3 ml L-1) in foliar and soil drench method mitigated disease severityin Xcc challenged plants especially the earlier one. Silicon treated plants showed reduced lesion diameter and increased latent period, accompanied by higher accumulation of silicon in leaf, particularly in foliar application method.Likewise, silicon treatment augmented peroxidase, catalase, Total phenolic compound and Phenylalanine ammonia-lyase activity in plants after Xcc inoculation compared to control at both foliar and soil drench method but comparatively it was higher in foliar application method. Silicon showed momentous performance on disease attenuation,wherein foliar application method showed best performance and soil drench method showed moderate performance compared to control. This finding suggested that application of silicon has elicited some biochemical and physiological events which induced resistance against Xcc in bottle gourd.

Efficiency of Pseudomonas fluorescens and two organics such as Samrat and Neemat-10G with different doses were investigated in tomato cultivar Pusa Ruby for the management of the root-knot disease of tomato in terms of growth parameters in field condition. Greatest reduction in the numbers of second-stage juveniles in soil, number of root galls and egg masses were recorded with combined application of Samrat, Neemat-10G along with P. fluorescens as compared with experimental controls as well as other treatments. Similarly, the greatest improvement in the plant growth and biomass of tomato was noted in the same treatment. However, individual application of the bioinoculant and organic fertilizers also showed significant enhancement but was less as compared to combined treatment. Order of effectiveness was determined with P. fluorescens followed by Neemat-10G and Samrat. Moreover, the N, P and K contents were significantly enhanced in combined treatment of P. fluorescens, Neemat-10G and Samrat. The study concluded that combined application of P. fluorescens, Neemat-10G and Samrat may be exploited commercially in field condition for nematode management which may be a better alternative to manage the damage incurred from nematode infested crop for achieving the higher productivity of tomato in developing countries like India where organic food are in great demand.

The present study was conducted to clarify the jute seed storage sustainability using biological agent. The experiment was carried out in the field of Jute Agriculture Experimental Station (JAES), Manikgonj and Kishoregonj Regional Station (KRS), Kishoregonj under Bangladesh Jute Research Institute, Bangladesh. Two different seed treatments viz. Provax-200 and BAU- Biofungicide and Seeds having moisture content 9.5% were used for the experiment. Disease incidence occurred lowest at JAES and KRS with BAU- Biofungicide treated seeds were used. BAU- Biofungicide and Provax-200 showed superior means for controlling field fungi with higher seed yield and better improvement of seed quality. The highest disease incidences 11.40% and lowest disease incidences 6.39% were recorded under control and BAU- Biofungicide treated seeds, respectively. Negative relations between disease severity and seed yield, fibre yield and stick yield were observed in seed treatments with BAU- Biofungicide and Provax-200. The highest seed yield (369.33 kg/ha), fibre yield (4.53 ton/ha) and stick yield (9.76 ton/ha) were recorded under BAU- Biofungicide treated seeds and the lowest seed yield (325.52 kg/ha), fibre yield (2.25 ton/ha) and stick yield (4.98 ton/ha) were recorded under control treatment. Thus, seed treatment by BAU- Biofungicide enhanced the quality and yield of the jute seed and fibre in the field.
