The experiment was laid out in a randomized block design with three replications. There were four treatments Mango (5-10 yrs. old). The treatments are:&nbsp; 4 (four) Fertilizer packages <strong>*</strong> T<sub>1</sub>= Control, T<sub>2</sub>= N<sub>230</sub>P<sub>53</sub>K<sub>100</sub> S <sub>36</sub>Zn<sub>3</sub> B<sub>4 </sub>+ CD/Compost 20000 g/plant, T<sub>3</sub>= 125% of T<sub>2</sub> and T<sub>4</sub>= 150% of T<sub>2</sub>. In Khagrachari site, Mango yield varied from 7.72-22.30 kg/plant. The highest mango yield 22.30 kg/plant wasin T4 treatment (150% of T<sub>2</sub>). In Bandarban site, Mango yield ranged between24.13-48.25 kg/plant. The highest mango yield 48.25 kg/plant found in T<sub>3 </sub>treatment (125% of T<sub>2</sub>). In Rangamati site, Mango yield varied from 9.62-23.10 kg/plant. The highest mango yield 23.10 kg/plant found in T<sub>4 </sub>treatment (150% of T<sub>2</sub>). In most cases the significant difference in yields were found in T<sub>4</sub> treatments in three districts.</p> Md.

The applicability and validity of the productivity index models were determined using rice as a test crop. Result showed significant relationships with coefficients of determination (R<sup>2</sup>) of 0.7158, 0.7204 and 0.8778 found between grain yield of rice (Y) and PI, PIm and RI values respectively. The highest and the lowest grain yield of rice to a reasonable extent correspond to the higher and the lower productivity index values, respectively. Higher productivity indices explained higher mean grain yield of rice. The productivity indices values decreased with the decrease in grain yield. The grain yield of grain followed productivity index predictions and are hereby recommended as tools of soil productivity assessment in the study area.</p> A. T. Gani, A. Ali, P. I. Agber, S. O. I.

Water samples were collected from five different flood plain locations (Nwuko, Tsokundi, Rafin-Kada, Gidan-Idi and Gindin-Dorowa) in 2016 and 2017. Completely randomized design (CRD) was employed replicated three times. The results obtained were subjected to analysis of variance and means separated using F-LSD test at P ≤ 0.05. The results of the water quality analysis showed that all the determined parameters were significantly different at the different sample locations, except water pH of the year 2016 which was not significantly different at the different sample locations. The results show that the flooded water could be used for irrigation since they were found to be relatively safe and hence required little or no treatment for soluble salts. Water from flooding within the Wukari Floodplains is recommended for supplementary irrigation.</p> A. T. Gani, A. Ali, P. I. Agber, A.
