Journal of Agricultural Science & Engineering Innovation (JASEI) [U.S. ISSN 2694 -4812] 2021-06-14T01:14:45+00:00 Chief Editor Open Journal Systems <p>About this Journal</p> <p> The <strong><em>Journal of Agricultural Science &amp; Engineering Innovation (JASEI) </em></strong>is a peer-reviewed interdisciplinary journal, published bimonthly and fully refereed, which focuses on the parts of exact, natural, economic, and social sciences used in the practice and understanding of agriculture. It also focuses on the agricultural relevance basis for common, complex diseases and experiments to study them. Manuscripts that meet the general criteria of significance and academic excellence are welcome to be submitted. Accepted papers will be published shortly after acceptance. </p> <p>JASEI includes genetics and plant breeding, horticulture, agronomy, soil science, entomology, plant pathology, plant science, crop physiology, animal science, veterinary science, aquaculture, food science and technology, agricultural engineering, agricultural machinery, post-harvest technology, genetic engineering, and biotechnology, microbial biotechnology, <wbr />agricultural extension, agricultural development, agricultural economics, rural development, sustainable agriculture, organic agriculture, forestry, environmental technology, food security, and other related fields. </p> Efficacy of different bio-agents against Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. lentis in vitro and in vivo condition 2021-06-14T01:14:45+00:00 <p>Inhibitory effect of bioagents was tested against Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. lentis in vitro. Maximum(65.94%) mycelial growth was inhibited by Pseudomonas fluorescens followed by Bacillus subtilis (62.23%), T. viride (39.62%)and T. virense (39.22%).T. harzianum was found least effective inhibition of mycelia growth (35.65%) in dual plate technique. All five bio-agents evaluated against F. o. f. sp. lentis in vitro were also tested in vivo conditions, where they also were found effective in wilt management. Maximum disease control (42.10%) was recorded with P. fluorescens@ 10 g/kg seed followed by Bacillus subtilis (38.27%) @ 10 g/kg seed, T. viride (32.70%) @ 4 g/kg seed and T. virens (32.80%) @ 4 g/kg seed . T. harzianum was least effective in reducing wilt incidence (30.40%) @ 4 g/kg seed in 2016-17. Similar results were also observed in the year 2017-18. Disease incidence was maximum at 90 days after sowing as compared to 60 and 30 days after sowing in both the years.</p> 2021-07-03T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Journal of Agricultural Science & Engineering Innovation (JASEI) [U.S. ISSN 2694 -4812] Rooftop Gardening in Chattogram City Areas of Bangladesh- An Empirical Study 2021-02-12T13:34:17+00:00 <p>The study was carried out in three selected metro areas of Chattogram city of Bangladesh covering 90 sample households. Proportionate random sampling technique was followed. Results revealed that the average rooftop space per household was recorded as 2248.23 sq. feet; whereas 1268.4 sq. feet (56.42%) was under rooftop garden (RTG), 588.5 sq. feet (26.17%) was remained as open and 391.3 sq. feet (17.41%) was identified as potential space for expanding the garden. All of the gardens were installed at 2-10<sup>th</sup> stories of the buildings. As crop diversity 26 types of vegetables, 39 types of fruits, 11 types spices and 22 types of flower/ornamental and medicinal plants were found to be grown in the current RTG’s. But the number of crops varies significantly among the garden and locations. About 16 types of containers were used for growing plants. The total yield was recorded to be 135.38 kg per garden from 22 types of vegetables in the year of 2019. Among them, the highest yield was received from bottle gourd, 17.98 kg followed by tomato, 9.33 kg and country bean, 8.99 kg. In the case of fruits, the total yield was recorded as 77.24 kg per garden from 18 types of fruits in the same year. Among these, mango gave the highest yield (8.57 kg), followed by papaya (8.38 kg) and guava (7.52 kg). Research should be carried out on crop selection, fertilizer and irrigation management under different container systems and to develop a suitable RTG model for greening city of Bangladesh.</p> 2021-04-24T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Journal of Agricultural Science & Engineering Innovation (JASEI) [U.S. ISSN 2694 -4812]
