1TAXONOMIC STUDY ON SOME ANGIOSPERMS IN INHKAI BUMDr. Khin Win NaingThe taxonomic study on some angiosperms from Inhkai Bum of Myitkyina Township, has undertaken. The study area is situated between Northern Latitude 25° 23´ and East Longitude 97° 30´. All the species were collected during the year from May, 2014 to May, 2016. The 245 species belonging to 186 genera and 89family were included. Among them, 180 species belong to 139 genera of 60 families are angiosperms, 18 species belong to 16 genera of 12 families are fern and ferns allies, 23 species belong to 19 genera of 18 families are medicinal plants and 23 species belong to 19 genera of 18 families are medicinal plants and 23 species belong to 13 genera are wild orchids. In this research paper, 37 plant species, other 9 medicinal plants and 18 fern and ferns allies were described with their names, families and the outstanding features with colorful photograph.
2STUDY ON SOME MEDICINAL PLANTS IN WAING MAW TOWNSHIPDr Soe Soe Win In this project paper, some medicinal plants found in Waingmaw Township in Kachin State were collected from March 2016 to March 2018. In the present work, 36 species belong to 32 genera of 14 families were identified and described the outstanding features with photographs. 9 species belong to Acanthaceae, 2 species belong to Zingiberaceae, 2 species of belong to Fabaceae, 2 species belong to Apocynaceae, 2 species belong to Rutaceae, and only one species in Sterculiaceae, Primulaceae, Chloranthaceae, Meliaceae, Costaceae, Apiaceae, Colchicaceae, Rubiaeae, Saururaceae, Piperaceae, Polygonaceae and Rhamnaceae have been repored for the flowering period, distribution, part used, propagation methods, flok uses, literature uses, of these medicinal plants.
3EFFECT OF DIFFERENT FERTILIZERS ON YIELD OF RAPESEEDDr Thida AyeOilseeds of rape are are essential for the local people. It is one of the most essential crops in Kachin State. The plot experiment was conducted during the winter season September 2015 to Jannuary 2016, at Myitkyina University campus. the experiment was conducted 2 fertilizers treatments in a Randomized Complete Block Design (RCB) with 5 replications. The effect of inorganic fertilizer of Armo and orgaic algal biofertilizer of Nostoc on the growth and yield of rapeseed were described. The results showed that growth and yield component characters of rapeseed in 3 gl -1 of Aroma were better than the control.

1SPECIES COMPOSITION OF ROAD-SIDE PLANTS IN URBAN AREA OF MYITKYINA TOWNSHIPDr. Moe SweA study of species composition of roadside plants in urban area of Myitkyina will be undertaken in 2018 to 2020. In this study, a representative sample site (One Quarter) will be selected according to the preliminary survey. All the species of roadsides will be collected and prepared for herbarium species. Environmental data to overall spectrum of species diversity will be collected. The aim of the study was to assess the species diversity and to do inventory list of species in urban area
2EDIBLE ALGAE ( NOSTOCHOPSIS LOBATUS WOOD EM. GEITTER) FOUND IN WAIMAW TOWNSHIP, KACHIN STATEHkawn TsinEdible algae Nostochopsis lobatus was collected from Nantmyint stream, Waimaw Towship, Kachin State. This algae was growing during October to April. The water temperature of study stie varied ranging from 18°C to 35°C and the pH values of water were 7.0 to 7.1. The water quality was clean and purity. The colonial size was found to be 0.5 to 2.0 cm in diameter while young, adult colonies were 10.0 to 15.0 cm in diameter. In this paper showed the morphological (EDXRF), protein analysis and nutritional value were reported.
3ISOLATION OF BACTERIA STRAINS FROM ROOT NODULES OF PHASEOLUS VULGARIS L. (BO-SA-PE) AND THEIR EFFECTS ON GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENTDr. Phyu Phyu Oo Soil and plant samples were collected from Pa-ma-tee Quarter, Myitkyina Township, Kachin State. Isolation of bacteria, Rhizobium , from root nodules of Phaseolus vulgaris L. (Bo-sa-pe) had been undertaken using YMA as basal medium. Isolated Rhizobium five strains (p 1, p 2, p 3, p 4, p 5) were observed and their morphological, culture characteristics and some biochemical tests were investigated. Besides, the tolerance of different pH, NaCl %and CaCO 3 % effects on 5 selected strains were undertaken to study the environmental stress. Finally, five strain (p 1, p 2, p 3, p 4, p 5) were effect on Phaseolus vulgaris L. (Bo-sa-pe) in pot culture.
