RESEARH PROJECTS COMPLETED

1. Investigator (Agronomy Component): Development of Technology for Integrated Weed Management in Bangladesh (it was a coordinated project headed by Prof. A.A. Mamun, Department of Agronomy, BAU, Mymensingh). Funded by DFID and Bangladesh Agricultural University for 1993 to 1995. Completed successfully and identified major weeds of upland rice, Jute, wheat, mustard and lentil. Important Agronomic practices for integrated weed management have been screened out. The findings have been published in local and foreign journals.

2. Principal Investigator: Monitoring competitive ability of transplant aman rice cultivars. Funded by Bangladesh Agricultural University for 2003 to 2005. (Under this project the competitive ability of a number of transplant aman rice cultivars were evaluated against barnyard grass in order to select the best competitive variety.  The selected variety was assessed in reducing amount of herbicide sprays or time of mechanical weeding. The appropriate plant spacing, nitrogen dose for the selected variety have been found out for better weed control. One PhD student was graduated under this project. Two papers are under process of publication.

3. Principal Investigator:Technology development for allelopathic weed management in rice. Funded by Bangladesh Agricultural University for July 2009 to June 2011. In this project some rice varieties have been screened out as highly allelopathic to weeds which will lead to less amount of herbicide for weed control. Two Master’s students were graduated under this project.
