Title : Screening of mungbean genotypes for nutrient stress tolerance


Generally nutrient deficiency of a soil is corrected through application of chemical fertilizers. Fertilizers on one hand are costly and on the other hand it may lead to water pollution by nitrogen and phosphorus from agricultural land. Screening of genotypes for nutrient stress tolerance could be the best alternative to overcome the situation. The present study evaluates the plant growth characters with emphasis on root growth and nutrient uptake of selected mungbean (Vigna radiata L.) genotypes and examines the efficiency of certain growth parameters for predicting their adaptation in sub-optimal nutrient environment. Some genotypes (VC 6153B, GK3 & VC 6144A) were found to be high nutrient acquiring genotypes and some (PDM 54, IPSA 25 & VO 1443 A-G) were low nutrient acquiring genotypes.


I am a Bangladeshi by birth having a Ph.D. in Agronomy, served in the Soil Resource Development Institute (SRDI) under the Ministry of Agriculture, Govt. of Bangladesh for 33 years carried out detailed and semi-detailed soil surveys covering different physiographic units having 3 different geological formations. Prepared technical reports, maps, customized reports for agricultural extension workers and farmers as well. Carried out several research projects under the auspices of BARC in agroecological stressed areas. I am the founder board member and editor of BiNet journal and reviewer of a number of reputed online journal. I have published 21 scientific papers at home and abroad. Attended an international seminar in Australia, Pakistan, and Bangladesh. I am a life member of scientific and professional bodies in Bangladesh.
