N.S. Ibrahim,M.M.H. Al-sahaf,A.F. Alwan
International Journal of Animal and Veterinary Advances , 2013,
Abstract: The present study was carried out to investigate the reproductive activity of mature Iraqi bull buffaloes and effect of month’s changes on the testes activity. Two hundred and fifty testes of mature buffaloes bull were taken from the slaughter house from December 2010 to September 2011. After slaughtering the length and width of the right testes were measured weight of the testes were also taken then carefully the epididymis were dissected. The diameters of testicular seminiferous tubules were also measured. The present study demonstrated a significant increased (p<0.05) in weight (g), length and width (cm) in the testes in March and April. The diameter of the seminiferous tubules demonstrated higher (p<0.05) significant in April, March and May, thickness of seminiferous tubules demonstrated higher significance in April, May and March. The increase in spermatogenesis process lead to increase the diameter and thickness of seminiferous. Conclusions reproductive activity of bull buffalo and semen physical characteristics decreased in hot months and increased in the moderate and cold months. The increase of ambient temperature in hot months lead to disturbance in reproductive activity but didn’t stop it.

M.M.H. Molla,M. Dilafroza Khanam,M.M. Khatun,M. Al-Amin
Asian Journal of Plant Sciences , 2004,
Abstract: Shoot tip culture of BARI banana 1 (Musa sp.) were cultured on MS medium supplemented with 5.0 mg L-1 BAP for shoot proliferation. Well-developed shoots were used for rooting. Among the six different concentrations of IBA (0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.4, 0.5, 0.6 mg L-1) with half strength MS medium, a good number of healthy roots were produced on half MS+0.5 mg L-1 IBA (7.86) followed by half MS+0.6 mg L-1 IBA (6.89) and half MS+0.4 mg L-1 IBA (6.31) with the weight of 0.85, 0.83 and 0.77 g plantlet-1, respectively. However, 95-100% plantlets were survived when they were transferred to small plastic pots after 15-20 days in vitro culture on half MS medium supplemented with 0.4-0.6 mg L-1 IBA and 7 days hardening at room temperature.

Pakistan Journal of Biological Sciences , 2007,
Abstract: The aim of the present study is to evaluate the biological control aptitude of the cyanobacteria, Anabaena subcylindrica, Nostoc muscorum and Oscillatoria angusta filtrates on the growth of the isolated pathogenic fungi from the different organs of Faba bean. Three caynobacterial (Anabaena subcylindrica, Nostoc muscorum and Oscillatoria angusta) filtrates were prepared in different concentrations and their effects on the isolated pathogenic fungi from leaves, stems and roots of Faba bean were studied. The study revealed high efficiency of the three algal filtrates on the control of the isolated pathogenic fungi from the three organs of Faba bean plants. The reduction in fungal mat growth diameter was greater than in that of the fungal dry weight showing inhibited fungal spread by greater rate. The reduction in the fungal dry weight was mostly linear and significantly correlated with the algal filtrate concentrations. The Efficient Algal Filtrate Concentration (EAFC) ranged between 104 and 461% for the three algal filtrates on the studied fungi dry weight. Complete control of the isolated fungi could be achieved by of a mixture of two algal filtrates in their EAFC and that of Nostoc muscorum + Oscillatoria angusta filtrates with an EAFC 368 and 194% were the best and economic mixture.

International Journal of Poultry Science , 2006,
Abstract: Local chickens dominate poultry production in Bangladesh. For this reason, an investigation was conducted to determine the existing production system and production performance of native chicken in the Sylhet areas of Bangladesh. Data were collected from 180 households of 6 villages of Sylhet district in Bangladesh. In Sylhet mainly poor families, who have arrived from outside and are landless rear poultry. Most of the households (58.33%) had 0-15 chicken. Most of the families (75%) reared their chicken in combined house with duck. Materials used for housing were similar to other parts of the country. Mainly female members were involved in poultry rearing. About fifty percent farmers got on an average less than 70 eggs per year per bird. A few farmers (5.56%) informed that they had collected more than 130 eggs from a bird in a year. In most of the cases (47.22%) the length of clutch was less than 20. Interval between two clutches was found in highest percentage(42.22%). Highest egg production was observed in winter season (52.78%) followed by summer, spring and late autumn. Maximum (60%) farmer had vaccinated their birds and 55% farmers got service from Department of Livestock Services.
Variation of Aflatoxin Level in Different Poultry Feeds Used in Different Poultry Farms of Bangladesh Round the Year
M.M.H. Khan,B. Chowdhury,M.R.H. Bhuiya,M. Rahim
International Journal of Poultry Science , 2005,
Abstract: As quality of feed is the main determinant factor in successful poultry farming attempts were made to evaluate the quality of feeds used in the farms of Bangladesh in respect of aflatoxin. Feed samples were collected from two layer farms, four big hatcheries and six broiler farms located in different areas of Bangladesh and the collection was continued for twelve months. In feed samples collected during the twelve months, aflatoxin content was found to vary from 0 to 98 ppb. Only aflatoxin B1 was detected in the feed samples and the percentage of incidence was at a maximum in the months of June, July and August, while and from November to February, no aflatoxin was detected in any feed. Higher amount of aflatoxin accumulation in the poultry feed was noticed in rainy season. A positive correlation (0.814) was found to exist between the moisture and aflatoxin contents of the feed. Feed used in the breeder farm was superior to those of broiler and layer farms with respect to aflatoxin content. Poor quality maize could be considered as a source of aflatoxin contamination in poultry feed as it contained reasonable amount of the toxin (23 to 121 ppb) irrespective of the season. Storage condition as practiced in the farm and the left-over feed of the farm might not have contributed to the elevation of aflatoxin level in poultry feed.

Pakistan Journal of Biological Sciences , 2006,
Abstract: Non-conventional seafood products, fish sausage and fish ball were developed from underutilized sea catfish and consumer`s acceptance and market test of the new products were conducted in inland rural and coastal fishing communities. Sea catfish, achysurus thalassinus was collected from Chittagong in an insulated box. The cost of production and profit of the products were assessed in the laboratory of the Faculty of Fisheries, Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh, Bangladesh. From a 1000 g catfish, 500 g washed mince could be recovered. From 500 g washed mince, a total of 1000 g dough could be produced and from this dough 17 pieces of fish sausage and 40 pieces of fish ball were produced. The total production cost of the products from 1000 g dough including raw materials, ingredients, wage, transportation, storage and marketing was Tk. 75. Pilot market-testing were done in 10 villages of Mymensingh and six coastal villages of Chittagong. Finally, an analysis of the cost and profit of production was done on the basis of the price of product set by the people, the price of raw material in the market, tentative cost of productions and cost of transportation and storage. As per the average selling price obtained from the market tests, products of 1000 g can be sold at Tk. 136/- for sausage (Tk. 8/- each) and Tk. 160/- for fish ball (Tk. 4/- each) in the rural market of Bangladesh. Therefore, a net profit of Tk. 61 from fish sausage and Tk.85 from fish ball could be realized, from a manufacture of 1000 g whole sea catfish. Consumer`s acceptance and market tests revealed that fish ball was best chosen between the two products.

El-Shobery, M. Maha,El-Iskandrani, M. A.,Hegazy, M.M.H.
International Journal of Business and Management , 2010, DOI: 10.5539/ijbm.v5n6p74
Abstract: In this study, a sample of 96 Egyptian manufacturing small and medium enterprises (SMEs) was studied in relation to human factors (HFs) dependent quality management system (QMS). These were in three distinct industry groups: food & beverage, textiles & garments and leather & footwear. Human factors considered are derived from the seven criteria of the Egyptian Quality Award (EgyQA) and were used as the basis of a questionnaire survey. The SWOT analysis for the survey results revealed the urgent need for developing governmental strategies which should focus on improving organizations performance, developing QMS and establishing total quality management (TQM) basic infrastructure for the Egyptian manufacturing SMEs. This paper has provided two proposed practical framework models for improving the performance of the Egyptian manufacturing SMEs and for developing their competitiveness in both domestic and international markets, and thus activate their main role in the Egyptian economy.
Association Between Decision Making Autonomy and Knowledge of HIV/AIDS Prevention among ever Married Women in Bangladesh
Aklimunnessa Khandoker,M.M.H. Khan,Nazmul Ahsan,M. Fazley Elahi Chowdhury
Journal of Medical Sciences , 2006,
Abstract: This study investigated the association of decision making autonomy with HIV/AIDS prevention knowledge among married women in Bangladesh. Data were used from the 1999-2000 Bangladesh Demographic and Health Survey (BDHS). For measuring women`s autonomy in decision making, we used six factors namely who take the final decision about: own health care; child health care; purchasing of large household materials; purchasing of household things for daily needs; visiting family, friends and relatives and what foods to be cooked. Using these factors, a combined score for autonomy was constructed using Likert method. Univariate analysis showed that 84% of women did not have any HIV/AIDS prevention knowledge. Multivariate logistic regression analysis revealed that women`s autonomy in decision making was an important correlate of HIV/AIDS prevention knowledge even after adjusting for some potential factors such as age, education, occupation, place of residence, exposed to radio, television and newspaper. Multivariate adjusted odds ratio revealed that women with highest score of autonomy had significantly higher knowledge of HIV/AIDS and prevention compared with women with no autonomy. Since Bangladesh is at risk for HIV/AIDS epidemic for several behavioral and biomedical risk factors, increasing women`s autonomy might be an important path to combat the consequences of HIV/AIDS in Bangladesh.

Pakistan Journal of Biological Sciences , 2004,
Abstract: Milk samples from single, twin and triplet or 1st, 2nd and 3rd lactation bearing Black Bengal goat were collected to monitor the physical (organoleptic, specific gravity and pH value) and chemical (acidity, fat, SNF, total solids, protein, lactose and ash content of milk) quality of milk. From the above tests, it was observed that the color, flavor, taste and texture of milk samples were normal; yellowish white, normal (goaty), slightly sweet and free flowing liquid. Except acidity and protein content, all other chemical traits varied significantly among different kid bearing goats milk. Chemical parameters were similar in different lactations except fat and total solids percentage. Results of the above experiments indicated that milk obtained from single kid bearing and 2nd lactating goats were better than the other number of kids bearing or lactating goats

Journal of Applied Sciences , 2010,
Abstract: This study reviews an extensive body of literature to investigate the factors effective on performance of companies implementing Advanced Manufacturing Technology (AMT). The purpose of this study is to provide a comprehensive viewpoint of issues related to successful AMT implementation and offer some directions to managers and investigators to make a company well-prepared to accept technology. The factors are grouped into three categories: technological, organizational and internal/external. The literature showed that in order to have a fruitful result from AMT investment, the organizational structure and culture, operational strategy and human resource should be organized and integrated appropriately with each other to avoid probable barriers and problems. Proposed framework can be used as a guideline for managers and investors in improving their AMT implementation process.
