To reach in good plant stand, the life cycle of plants is faced with different critical stages such as uneven seed germination, poor and early seedling growth which ultimately results in low crop yield. It is well known that seed priming enhances germination, reduces seedling emergence time, and improves yield and yield contributing characters of p...

Plants are often exposed to abiotic stresses such as drought, salinity, heat, cold, and heavy metals that induce complex responses, which result in reduced growth as well as crop yield. Phytohormones are well known for their regulatory role in plant growth and development, and they serve as important chemical messengers, allowing plants to function...

In the present study, seed quality status of fifteen rice varieties were evaluated for physical properties, health status and proximate composition. Physical properties like moisture content, seed purity, germination and vigor index varied between 11.77-14.67%, 96.08-98.93%, 96.50 to 99.00% and 1972.74 to 2639.76, respectively. The shoot length and...

Salinity is a dominant obstacle to the proper germination of seeds, growth of seedlings, and, consequently, the production of crops. The priming of seeds with different treating agents can efficiently impart salinity tolerance. Kidney bean is a nutritious and popular vegetable crop in the world. Literature shows that salt stress negatively disturbs...

Aluminium stress is one of the major problems of wheat production that significantly reduces the growth and development. Al toxicity can be recovered by exogenous application of different growth inducing nutrient elements. Thus, this study was conducted to evaluate the ameliaration effect of B under Al toxicity. Therefore, a petri dish and hydropon...

Aim: Salinity is a major barrier to successful crop production. Seed priming and exogenous application of different signaling molecules can efficiently confer salinity tolerance. Wheat is a major cereal crop in the world and salinity drastically reduces the wheat seedling growth and yield. Therefore, the present study was conducted to explore the p...

Low and uneven germination is a serious problem for the successful production of okra seedlings. Priming of seeds as well as supplementation of different plant growth regulators exhibited better response in successful seedling production which eventually results in higher yield. Therefore, the present study was conducted to evaluate the effects of...

Drought is a major abiotic stress that restricts the production of crops throughout the world, Bangladesh is not a exception to this. Rice (Oryza sativa L.) as a drought sensitive crop shows considerable varietal differences towards this environmental stress. With an aim to identify drought tolerant rice variety an experiment was conducted at the P...

Project
Priming of seeds as well as supplementation of different signaling molecules exhibits better response in successful crop production under stress and non-stress conditions. The aim of this project is to elucidate the role of different signaling molecules in seed priming and exogenous application under stress conditions in different crops.
Project
To find out varieties having the capacity to mitigate drought so that the barren areas of char can be brought under cultivation
