Abstract
A series of experiments were conducted to evaluate the plant establishment of white jute seeds collected from five different sources of Bangladesh. The establishment experiments were conducted at greenhouse of BJRI, Dhaka and field of Jute Agriculture Experimental Station (JAES), Manikganj during March to June 2018. The treatments consisted of five different seed sources viz., i) Bangladesh Jute Research Institute (BJRI), ii) Bangladesh Agriculture Development Corporation (BADC), iii), iv) Farmers of two different locations and v) Local market. Farmer’s source was divided into two sub-sources. The sub sources were farmer1 of Faridpur and farmer2 of Rangpur locations. Two different conditions were i) Greenhouse and ii) Field. The four seedlings age were 30, 40, 50, and 60 days. The cv. O-9897 of the Corchorus olitorius L. was used as study material. Randomized completely block design with three replication were followed. Results revealed that O-9897 seed’s seedling growth and dry weight parametersaffected significantly due to seed sources. The shoot height, base diameter, root length, shoot dry weight and root dry weights for O-9897 seed’s influenced significantly due to seed sources in both the condition of greenhouse and field. BJRI and BADC seed sources showed better performance than the others. The attributes showed significant variations for seedling ages in both the conditions also. The highest values were observed in 60 days of seedling age. The interactions of seed sources and seedling ages were highly significant for all the growth and dry weight parameters. The BJRI seeds of 60 days of seedling age performed the highest shoot height, base diameter, and root length, shoot dry weight and root dry weights.
