  The combined effect of different rates of fertilizer (N + P) and concentrations of a growth regulator commercial product on growth and yield of cotton was studied. There were two types of treatments viz. fertilizer rates (F) and Mixtalol concentrations (M) placed randomly in the field under split-splot design with four replications. Main-plot treatments were: Fo Control/no fertilizer), F1 (half rate of recommended N and P fertilizers viz. 575 and 28.8 kg ha-1, respectively) and F2 (full rate of recommended N and P fertilizers viz. 115 and 57.5 kg ha-1, respectively). The sub-plot treatments included: Mo (Control/no Mixtalol Spray), M1 (2 pm Mixtalol sprays thrice) and M2 (3 ppm Mixtalol spray thrice). Thus there were nine treatments combinations in total. Data on plant height and number of branches per plant showed significantly increased values of these two with the both doses of fertilizer as well as Mixtalol over Control. The difference between M1 and M2 was non significant for both parameters, while the F1 and F2 gave statistically similar values for number of branches and F2 was superior to F1 with respect to plant height. The best combination was F2 x M1 and the lowest values were found in Fo x Mo. As regards the number of bolls per plant and seed cotton yield, F2 gave statistically better results than did F1 and F2. among Mixtalol treatments M1 performed better than M2. the synergistic effect was best with F2 x M1 and it was lowest at Fo x Mo. Thus it was concluded that cotton gave the highest response to full rate of fertilizer (F2) along with lower concentration (2 ppm) sprays Mixtalol (M1) as the most suitable combination.

  The study was conducted to evaluate the fertility status of soil in the central Rechna Doab area. Fertility of the whole Central Rechna Doab area was low, Phosphorus in particular was low in all soils and some soil samples were Potassium deficient while few were low in nitrogen. The situation can be brought to medium fertility level by using proper amount of NPK on the basis of soil test evaluation. However, a high fertility level can only be achieved by all round efforts on scientific basis.

  Acacia modesta Wall (Phulai) belong to family Mimosaceae is being regularly used as miswak (tooth brush) for teeth cleaning in various parts of Pakistan. It is medium size tree, 4-7 meter in height and flowering period is from March-May. The present study was confined to check antibacterial efficacy of twigs extract against dental pathogens. The study was conducted in traditional drug section of National Institute of Health, Pakistan. Lactobacillus (gram positive) strain of bacteria was cultured from dental carriers in control conditions. The effect was determined by disc method. The pharmacognostic study revealed that the extract has significant antibacterial efficacy against lactobacterial triclosan.
