  Field experiments were conducted on maize and wheat under normal soil conditions at Qalla, Charsadda and Tarnab, Peshawar irrigated with canal water to evaluate the effect of gypsum application on the efficiency of NPK fertilizers. Gypsum was applied @ 0, 500 and 1000 kg ha-1 with two levels of fertilizers i.e. recommended dose of NPK (120,90, 60 kg ha-1) and half dose (60, 45 and 30 kg ha-1) respectively. Maximum grain (3605 kg ha-1) and stalk (9922 kg ha-1) yield of maize was recorded at Qalla by the application of recommended dose of NPK with 1000 kg gypsum ha-1. The NPK with 500 kg gypsum ha-1 ranked second in this respect. Half dose of the NPK without any gypsum gave minimum grain (2248 kg ha-1) and stalk (3435 kg ha-1) yield. The yields were non- significantly different at Tarnab under the same treatment compared with that of Qalla. During the second year, the soil conditions improved and yield of grain (2883 kg ha-1) as well as stalk (15833 kg ha-1) was better at both sites. Wheat yield was non-significantly different at Tarnab. Uptake of different ions was variable. Uptake of P, K, Zn and Cu decreased while that of Mn and Fe increased during the second year. Maximum yield of maize grain (2883 kg ha-1) and stalk (15833 kg ha-1) with half dose and wheat grain (3605 kg ha-1) and stalk (12910 kg ha-1) was obtained by application of 1000 kg ha-1 gypsum with full dose of NPK.

  Under an old traditional method of irrigation system flood water is conserved in the specially prepared fields and later used for growing Rabi and Kharif crops. On farm research was conducted during 1996-97 and 1997-98 Rabi crop season to determine the better adoptability of Rawal-87 in the Hathala area of D.I. Khan. Within a 5 km2 area, four plots were cultivated with two cultivars of wheat during 1996-97. The same wheat cultivars were planted in ten plots during 1997-98 in the Hathala target area. The plots cultivated with the improved variety had significant high quantity of water. Plant height of tillers of improved variety was smaller compared to local variety. Spike length of the improved variety was higher as compared to local variety. The comparison of Rawal-87 plots with local variety like Persabaq-85 was studied. Among these, the yield of Rawal-87 (improved variety) was higher as compared to local and Persabak-85 (graded varieties). While dry matter yield of local variety was higher as compared to improve variety due to greater plant height.

  Greenhouse studies on fodderbeet cultivars Beta vulgaris (cvs. Majoral, Monored, and Polygroeningia) and of Beta maritima (Seabeet) showed significant differences for Relative Growth Rate (RGR) among themselves while no significant differences were observed for salinity treatments until the first harvest. Plants had adapted themselves to salinity after six weeks of treatment and showed significant differences in RGR and Net Assimilation Rate (NAR) during the whole period of growth. Leaf thickness did not change significantly with salinity. B. vulgaris cv. Majoral and B. maritima were found to be better adapted 150 mM NaCl concentration in soil solution than cv. Monored and Polygroeningia under greenhouse conditions.
