AWD method may not be use in that area because of salinity problem though use in sufficient water rice production is good. We have got very fine result when use in pheromone trap on the different vegetables like, water melon, cucumber, sweet gourd, bitter gourd. HYV BARI Mugh5 also gave an impressive result where all farmers cultivated local variety. Hand pollination gave the farmer desire yield on bottle gourd, sweet gourd production.
