Abstract

Parasitic diseases in domestic animals are common in Bangladesh. Filarial worm Stephanofilarial assamensis is the causal agent of Humpsore and it is transmitted by a vector (fly) named Musca conducens. The study was directed to find out the occurrence of Humpsore in cattle population in Kanaighat Upazila of Sylhet, Bangladesh. The study began from November 2016 to October 2017. In this period, a total of 7702 cattle were brought to the Kanaighat Upazila veterinary hospital and examined. From the total, 99 cattle were found to be clinically affected with Humpsore. The disease was diagnosed on the basis of owner complaint, clinical signs, physical signs and gross examination of the lesion. In this study the overall prevalence was (1.28%) and disease prevalent more in adult cattle. The outbreak of diseases occurs throughout the year but the maximum prevalence was found in May (2.93%). Disease prevalence mostly found in male than female. The disease prevalence in male was (1.75%) and in female (0.76%). In this research, the highest prevalence (2.06%) was found in the age group of over 5 years. The velocity of infection grown with the increase of the age of the animals. According to seasonal influence, a maximal disease outbreak in rainy season and prevalence was (2.37%) and lowest prevalence found in the winter season and it was (0.69%).  P-value (P<0.05) was considered as level of significant.

Authors: Fatema-Tuz-Zohra, Md. Abul Bashar & Mohammad Zamshed Alam

Abstract

The study examined the status of adoption of BRRI dhan29 production technologies and estimated the contribution of the selected characteristics of the farmers to the adoption of production technologies. The methodology of this study is an integration of quantitative and qualitative data collected in Sonatala and Dohopara villages of Sariakandi upazila in Bogra district. Data were collected from 117 BRRI dhan29 growers from January 06 to February 05, 2017. Descriptive statistics, multiple regression were used for data analysis. Most of the farmers (67.5 percent) belong to medium adoption followed by high adoption (18.8 percent) BRRI dhan29 production technologies. Among the variables- age, level of education, farming experience, attitude towards rice cultivation, usage of ICT in agriculture, organizational participation and knowledge on rice production were the significant contributor and provided 59.3 percent contribution on adoption of BRRI dhan29 production technologies. It was also found that 4.2%,  15.3%,  41.1%, 31.5%  and  6.9% farmers were innovators, early adopters, early majority, late majority, and laggards respectively regarding BRRI dhan29  adoption.  It is concluded that the composite adoption of BRRI dhan29 production technologies is moderate and needs further advancement. Based on the findings, it is recommended that respective authorities should implement and popularize farmers based projects on a massive scale for the adoption of BRRI dhan29 production technologies.

Key words: BRRI Dhan29, Technologies, rice cultivation, adopters, adoption.

Total Quality Management in Education

Authors: Uzma Rasool Khan, Samreen Khan, Sania M. Aslam, Sana Mateen & Nawal Punhal

Abstract

The main purpose of this paper is to analyze the thoughts of the modern era paradigm on Total quality management “TQM” and its application in the field of education. This research also explores the adoption of total quality management in the field of education. Our research starts with the background theory/ literature review and then outline the result of the study, conducted by the students to obtain the different perspective on Total quality management in education. We applied survey methodology and selected questionnaire as an instrument. We used Multiple Regression to analyze the effect of TQM in education. By testing the hypothesis we have found out that the two sectors (government and educational institutions) agreed to adopt the concept of TQM except for the parental sector. This sector needs improvement. In our research F- statistics indicate positive results. It means that adoption of TQM in education gives you an excellent result in the overall system. As we can say that adoption of total quality management in education can ascertain more effective institutional change with success. As a result, this research proposed a theory which is obtained from TQM i.e. institutional change environment, sustainable success, and innovation which express the relationship between the educational institutions and the role of total quality management.
