  Maximum plant height (139.83 cm) and late sprouting was recorded in englique. Maximum number of flowers per plant (41.00) was observed in the rose variety, daydream. Alexendra and paradise had the maximum flower size (7.93 cm) maximum number of petals (59.20) in yankee doodle and longest life persistency (17.17 days) in golden times was recorded. The maximum vase life of 8.00 days was observed in variety freesia, whereas the maximum number of branches per plant (12.50) was noted in paradise. In conclusion, alexendra and paradise are recommended for out door beautification due to their large flower size and golden times is recommended for long flower persistency. For cut flower production freesia is recommended due to its vase life.

  Five different cultivars of okra viz. (penta green, pusa sawani, local cultivar, pusa green and clemson) were evaluated for their performance under the agro-climatic conditions of D.I.Khan. Minimum number of days to flowering (36.33), maximum pods per plant (43.42), highest pods weight per plant (446.23 gm) and in return the maximum yield of the pods (17.85 t ha-1) were obtained from the pusa green cultivar. Different parameters like days taken to germination, pod size and number of pods per plant remained non-significant for different okra cultivars.

  The local varieties of onion (Allium cepa L.) viz. Bannu local, Bilot Kacha local, Dhakki local, Dhallah local, Naurang local, Paniyala local, Peshawar local, Shah Alam local, Swat-1 and Tank local were evaluated for seed production. The study was conducted at the Faculty of Agriculture, Gomal University, D.I. Khan during 1999. Data on different growth and seed yield parameters were recorded and statistically analyzed. Almost all growth parameters differed significantly (P=0.05) except flower stalk and umbel diameter. The highest seed weight per umbel (5.800 g) was harvest in the Peshawar local while the lowest (3.417 g) in Bannu local. The seed yield ha-1 and 1000 seed weight significantly (P=0.05) differed amongst the varieties. The highest seed yield (192.20 kg ha-1) was obtained in the Cv Naurang local which was statistically at per with Paniyala local, Shah Alam local and Swat-1 and significantly higher than the other varieties. The lowest seed yield 447.25 kg ha-1 was obtained from onion variety Tank local. The 1000 seeds weight of Naurang local, Shah Alam local and Swat-1 were found as the better seed yielders and are suitable for seed production under D.I.Khan condition.

  The data obtained revealed that maximum plant height (422 cm), number of flowers (532), number of fruits per tree (940), fruit length (19.11 cm) and average fruit yield per tree (61.22 kg) were recorded in 1.5-1.5-0.75 NPK kg/plant. Maximum plant girth (78 cm) and maximum fruit weight (133.5 g) was found in 1.5-0.75-00 NPK kg/plant. Whereas, maximum number of inflorescence/ shoot (23.7) was recorded in 00-00-00 NPK kg/plant.

  A trial was conducted to see the effect of different row spacing and cutting on the growth and yield of Spinach. The results showed that the differences in row spacing were non-significant for Plant height (cm), number of leaves, fresh foliage yield (kg ha-1) and dried foliage yield (kg ha -1). Broadcast method of sowing produced the most prominent results in all the parameters studied, giving the maximum plant height of 25.58 cm, maximum number of leaves (11.61), maximum fresh foliage yield of 2255 kg ha -1 and maximum dried foliage yield of 218.7 kg ha-1. The cuttings showed significant differences for plant height (cm), fresh and dried foliage yield (kg ha -1), whereas the cuttings showed a non-significant behavior for number of leaves. First cutting showed maximum plant height of 26.66 cm, whereas the second cutting gave the maximum number of leaves (11.17), fresh foliage yield of 2329 kg ha -1 and dried foliage yield of 222.7kg ha -1.

  It was found that the maximum length of the branches were observed in unpruned trees. Maximum number of branches (110.00) number of leaves per branch (37.67), number of cluster per plant, (85.00) number of fruits per cluster (58.33), weight of cluster per plant 42.36 g and total yield per plant (3.64kg), was observed in the pruning level of 90 cm above the ground level, while the minimum, in all the above mentioned parameters, were found in un-pruned trees.

  The effect of different pruning intensities as factor-A and various pruning dates as factor-B on the production of phalsa was checked. Pruning levels significantly affected the days taken to sprouting, flowering, fruit setting, number of branches/plant, length of branches, number of fruit clusters/plant and weight of clusters. Among different pruning intensities, 100 cm gave maximum number of clusters/plant (1771) and also the highest yield/plant (18.41 kg). Various pruning dates significantly affected the days taken to sprouting, number of leaves/branch and number of branches/plant. Pruning at 22 Dec. produced maximum number of fruit clusters/plant (1660) and the highest yield/plant (18.17 kg).

  Various plant spacing resulted in the increased plant height, onion bulb size, weight of the bulbs, number of the bulbs per plot and yield of the bulbs. In case of different nitrogen levels, all the parameters under the study were significantly affected. However, 12 cm plant spacing with 100 kg N ha -1 gave the best results. Maximum yield of onion bulbs (22.90 and 22.82 t ha -1) was obtained from 12 cm plant spacing with 100 kg N ha -1, respectively.

  Minimum sprouting and percent rotten bulbs were noted in trails received no inorganic fertilizer. Maximum weight loss was noted during 18.9.1996 to 3.10.1996 in NPK @ 90-100-60 kg/ha (16.32%) and @ 90-100-120 kg/ha (13.58%) while minimum weight loss was observed through out the storage period (2.7.1996-31.10.1996) in treatments FYM only and control. Data collected for bulb sizes showed significant differences between the two sizes. Small bulbs always showed higher percent weight loss and rotting while percent sprouting was maximum in larger bulbs.

  An experiment on Tinda Gourd cv. local was conducted at the experimental area of Faculty of Agriculture, Gomal University, D.I. Khan during 1995 to determine the best date of sowing for obtaining high yield. Experiment comprises six dates of sowing viz. 28th Feb., 10th March, 20th March, 30th March, 9th April and 19th April, 1995. The parameters in this regard were days taken to germinate, flowering, fruit setting, maturity of first fruit, vine length (cm), fruit weight (g), number of fruits per vine and yield (tones/ha). The results obtained were significantly differed at 5% level of probability. The studies pertaining effect of different sowing dates showed that early seed sowing of Tinda speed up the germination days, flowering, fruit setting, maturity of first fruit and vine length. The yield results indicated that March is the best date of the sowing Tinda gourd under the agro-climatic conditions of D.I. Khan. This study also revealed early sowing to give better yield performance than late sowing.
