  The arsenic status of some selected soils was determined in ten thanas of four arsenic affected districts of Bangladesh. Thirty soil samples taking three from each of 10 thanas representing 4 districts viz. Gopalganj, Faridpur, Rajbari and Madaripur of Bangladesh were collected. The soils were collected from 3 depths viz. 0-15, 15-30 and 30-45 cm from each location. The arsenic content in soils of Gopalganj, Faridpur, Rajbari and Madaripur districts ranged from 3.96-25.09, 0-38.67, 1.32-36.99 and 1.32-38.19 ppm, respectively. Out of 30 samples, arsenic content was noticed for 21 samples at 0-15 cm depth (1.98-46.09 ppm), 26 samples at 15-30 cm depth (1.98-51.73 ppm) and 27 samples at 30-45 cm depth (1.98-54.05 ppm). Nine samples at 0-15 cm, 4 samples at 15-30 cm and 3 samples at 30-45 cm were free from arsenic contamination. On the other hand, 7 samples at 0-15 cm depth, 6 samples at 15-30 cm depth and 4 samples at 30-45 cm depth were found to be slightly arsenic contaminated. Correlation study of arsenic contents of soils was done with some soil properties viz. sand, silt and clay contents, soil pH, EC and organic matter status. Results showed that arsenic content correlated significantly with different soil properties.

  An experiment was conducted in silt loam soil (pH 6.52) to compare the effect of the recommended dose of N (80 kg N ha-1) with that of incorporated two layers of Azolla plus 40 kg N ha-1 or Azolla left floating (no incorporation) plus 40 kg N ha-1 on the yield and NPS uptake by BR 26 rice. The highest grain yield of 3.95 t ha-1 with the highest total (grain + straw) uptake of 75.4 kg N ha-1, 32.7 kg P ha-1 and 8.5 kg S ha-1 were recorded for incorporations of two layers of Azolla (grown from 0.2 kg m-2 inoculum) at 25 and 40 DAT plus application of 40 kg N ha-1 at 15 and 60 DAT- all of which remained statistically at par with their counterparts of another similar treatment but using 0.1 kg m-2 inoculum instead. All these data differed significantly with those that were recorded against the recommended dose of N as urea. Azolla left growing after inoculation was found significantly beneficial for rice growth. Azolla contributed to the increased uptake of N, P and S. Incorporation of two layers of Azolla biomass showed slight increases in soil organic matter status (from 1.85% initial to 1.88% after crop harvest).
