Abstract
The experiment was carried out at the field laboratory of the Department of Crop Botany, Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh during the period from March 2002 to June 2002 to evaluate the effect of biofertilizer ( Bradyrhizobium ) and plant growth regulators (GA<sub>3</sub> and IAA) on growth of summer mungbean ( Vigna radiata L.). The experiment was laid out by RCBD with three replications and two factors (variety and treatment). There were altogether 12 treatment combinations. Most of the growth parameters such as number of branches plant<sup>-1</sup>, number of leaves plant<sup>-1</sup>, number of effective nodules plant<sup>-1</sup>, number of non-effective nodules plant<sup>-1</sup>, root dry weight plant<sup>-1</sup>, nodule dry weight plant<sup>-1</sup> was the height due to the application of biofertilizer ( Bradyrhizobium ). On the other hand, plant height, leave dry weight plant<sup>-1</sup>, shoot dry weight plant<sup>-1</sup> and total dry weight plant<sup>-1</sup> was the height due to the application of plant growth regulators (GA<sub>3</sub> and IAA). However, biofertilizer ( Bradyrhizobium ) and plant growth regulators (GA<sub>3</sub> and IAA) showed statistically identical performance on Crop Growth Rate (CGR) and Relative Growth Rate (RGR). In addition, among the mungbean varieties, Binamoog-5 performed better than that of Binamoog-2 and Binamoog-4.

      Soil pollution, influenced by both natural and anthropogenic factors, significantly reduces environmental quality. Six heavy metals i.e., chromium, nickel, copper, arsenic, cadmium and lead in eight different land-use soils from the Patuakhali district in Bangladesh were assessed. Metals were measured using an inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer (ICP-MS). The concentrations of Cr, Ni,... [Show full abstract]

        The present study was conducted to assess the contamination of heavy metals in the industrial waste waters collected from Dhaka city, Bangladesh. Seven different types of industries have been considered as the major sources of untreated effluents. Total and dissolved metals were analyzed using inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer (ICP-MS) and compared with different international... [Show full abstract]

          A field experiment was conducted at the Soil Science Field Laboratory of Bangladesh Agricultural University (BAU), Mymensingh during the period from January to April 2004 to study the effects of Bradyrhizobium and Azotobacter inoculation on growth and yield of mungbean varieties. There were ten treatment combinations taking two varieties of mungbean viz. BARI mung-3 and BARI mung-4, and five... [Show full abstract]
