Genotypes https://journalajrcs.com/index.php/AJRCS/article/view/30133 <p>A field experiment was conducted at the field Laboratory, Horticulture farm, Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh-2202, Bangladesh during the dry season (October to April) to evaluate the effect of planting time on the growth and yield of two garlic varieties. The experiment was laid-out with two factors, dates of planting (21 October, 6 November, 21 November and 06 December) and variety (BAU garlic-1 and BAU garlic-2) in Randomized Complete Block Design with three replications. Planting time had significant influence on growth and yield attributes as well as bulb yield of garlic. Plant height, leaf length, number of leaves, leaf and root dry weight, bulb diameter, number of cloves per bulb and bulb yield decreased with delay planting. The highest plant height (52.38 cm), leaf length (37.66 cm), number of leaves per plant (7.15), leaf dry weight (1.75 g), bulb diameter (3.89 cm), number of cloves per bulb (22.31), bulb yield per plant (16.42 g) and per hectare (8.13 t ha<sup>-1</sup>) obtained from 21 October planting. BAU garlic-2 was relatively better than BAU garlic-1 in terms of yield and yield attributes. The interaction effect of planting time and variety showed the highest bulb yield of both varieties from 21 October planting. Early planting of both varieties found better to get maximum yield of garlic.</p> Afroza Sultana, Sanjoy Kumer Debsharma, Satyen Mondal, Sheikh Maniruzzaman, M. M. Al Fakhrul Islam, Md.

Don https://journalajrcs.com/index.php/AJRCS/article/view/30134 <p><strong>Aim:</strong> We evaluated the antibacterial activities and phytochemical distribution of the solvent fractions of the leaf and stem of Leea guineensis G. Don.</p> <p><strong>Methodology:</strong> The antibacterial activities and phytochemical distribution of the solvent fractions of the leaf and stem of L. guineensis were determined using standard procedures.</p> <p><strong>Results:</strong> Methanol fraction of the leaves at 100 mg/mL showed activity against Acinetobacter baumammii while both ethyl acetate and methanol fractions of the leaves at 100 mg/mL have activities against Acinetobacter baumammii<strong>. </strong>The methanol fraction of LGS leaves at 25-100 mg/mL was potent against Escherichia coli, while the ethyl acetate fraction of the stem at 100 mg/mL was inhibitory to Escherichia coli. Both the ethyl acetate and methanol fractions of the leaf of LGS possess antibacterial activity against Staphylococcus aureus, however, the methanol fractions of the stem alone inhibit Staphylococcus aureus. Ethyl acetate and methanol fractions of the leaf were inhibitory to Pseudomonas aeruginosa while ethyl acetate fraction of the stem was highly efficacious on Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Only the methanol fraction of the leaf was potent against Proteus mirabilis, while both ethyl acetate and methanol fraction of the stem were potent against Proteus mirabilis. Both ethyl acetate and methanol fractions of the stem at 100 µg/mL were potent against Klebsiella pneumoniae but, only the methanol fraction of the stem was potent on Klebsiella pneumoniae. The methanol fraction of the leaves was potent against Salmonella Typhi however, both ethyl acetate and methanol fraction of the stem were potent against Salmonella Typhi. More phytochemicals were found in ethyl acetate and methanol fractions of both the leaves and stems.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion:</strong> The ethyl acetate and methanol fractions of the leaves and stem of L. guineensis seem to possess some antibacterial properties courtesy of the abundant phytochemicals found in these fractions.</p> Bamkefa B.
