  Effect of seven different NPK levels on the growth and yield of Kohlrabi was investigated. Nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium were applied alone as well as in various combinations and had a significant effect on various plant growth and yield parameters. Maximum tuber weight (430.80 g) tuber diameter (10.23 cm), number of leaves per plant (14.38) and tuber yield (25850 kg ha-1) was recorded in plots fertilized with 160-120-160 kg NPK ha-1. It can be concluded that NPK @ 160-120-60 kg ha-1 was found to be the best fertilizer dose for the higher yield of Kohlrabi.

  The insect pests of maize and their losses were studied in KARINA Juglote, Northern Areas. Maize stem borer Chilo Partellus was found serious pest with 24.5% plant infestation followed by maize aphid Rhopalosiphum maidis with 15% plant infestation at tasseling stage. Shootfly Atherigona soccata attack at the early stage with 5% plant infestation. At the same time, Maize Jassid Zygenia sp was also recorded with population 5 jassids/3 sweep net. About 1112 Kg ha-1 grain losses has been calculated due to these insect pests.

  Current study was designed to explore the effect of poor quality water on rice growth and yield under saline paddy soil of Egypt. Two field experiments were conducted at agriculture research station of El-Sirw, Damitta province, Egypt during the years 2003 and 2004. The water quality treatments were; Mixed water (MW) with salinity level of 1.9-1.92 dS m-1 used from seedling to harvesting (T1), drainage water (DW) with 4.69-5.2 dS m-1 up to harvesting (T2), MW up to panicle initiation (PI) + DW up to harvesting (T3) and DW up to PI + MW up to harvesting (T4). The ponded water depth treatments were saturation (0 cm), 3 and 6 cm water depth and watering was done after every 4 days. Rice growth and yield was significantly affected by both water quality treatments and pond depths. The Leaf Area Index (LAI), Dry Matter (DM) and number of tillers increased as flooding depths were increased and submergence level of 6 cm depth gave greater LAI, DM and number of tillers. While, crop growth under mixed water treatment was better regarding LAI, DM, number of tillers m-2 and days to flowering. Yield components were increased with increasing the ponding depth up to 6 cm except sterility%. Mixed water treatment had favorable affect on yield components, while number of panicle reduced by 14.1, 5.8 and 6.3% and filled grains reduced by 29.7, 7.7 and 24.1% in T2, T3 and T4, respectively. It was observed that Ca2+ and K+ contents in rice leaves increased with ponding depth but Na+ contents reduced. While Na+ uptake was lower in MW treatment (T1) than Ca2+ and K+ uptake as compared to other treatments. Current study suggests the use of MW at early growth stage and its substation by DW at late growth stage for rice growth under saline soil condition. Analogously, flooding depth with 6 cm is recommended to apply when poor quality water has to be used in the irrigation under saline soil.

  The natural resource base of land, water and vegetation in arid and semi arid areas is highly fragile and greatly vulnerable to degradation. There is a serious problem of desertification in many parts of Pakistan. Population pressure along with the demand for more food, fodder and fuelwood has generated a chain of interrelated economic, social and environmental issues associated with the land degradation inside Pakistan. A variety of natural and human factors are contributing to desertification and severely impairs the biological productivity of lands across the country, including dwindling vegetation cover, overgrazing, flooding, over exploitation of water and land resources, over cultivation of marginal lands, deforestation, soil erosion, salinization, sodication and the use of inappropriate technologies. Unsustainable agricultural activities including inadequate soil conservation, cultivation of steep slopes, cultivation without adequate fallow periods, unbalanced fertilizer use and improper irrigation management coupled with the misuse of prime agricultural land for urbanization/industrialization had a devastating impact on land resources. The increased pressure on land with low productivity and environmental pollution through industrial wastes has further exacerbated the prevailing condition. In spite of the concerted national efforts to mitigate the effects of drought, combating desertification is still one of the major challenges to the people of the country. The action necessary to help avert desertification is to educate people as to the value of precious land and water resources. The present deserted situation is directly related to the failures of the unrealistic resource management policies. Various approaches are being applied to arrest the menace of desertification. The institutional set-up for formulation and implementation of programs and policies is being strengthened in the country. Numbers of land reclamation projects have been launched. The activities and efforts already underway by several public and private organizations, departments, NGOs and rural support programs to combat desertification are required to be strengthened, integrated and supplemented through a nationally supported, coordinated and monitored system. This study reviews some of the causes of desertification, identifies the patterns of land degradation and highlights the future prospects of combating desertification in Pakistan.

  Twelve tomato varieties were sown at Agriculture Research Institute for Northern Areas (ARINA) Juglote, to study the various growth productivity and quality characters for evaluating under agro climatic conditions of the area and to compare performance of the local variety with other commercial varieties. Data on days to flower initiation, number of clusters/plant, days to first fruit picking, weight of individual fruit, weight of total fruit/plantnumber of fruits /plantweight of fruits/plot, length and diameter of fruits and yield (kg/ha) were recorded. The number of clusters/plant were maximum in variety Roma (13.5) and minimum in variety Chico. Chico bore the highest number of fruits/plant (52.50) while F M B9 and local check had the lowest number of of fruits/plant (24.75 and 26.0). Fruit size was maximum in Tanja (6.90 cm) and minimum in local check (3.08). Savio and Roma took the minimum time (100 and 102 days), while Festen and Red top took the maximum time (125 days) from transplanting of seedlings to ripening of first fruit. Festen and local check were early maturing varieties, while Roma and Marglobe had long fruiting period. Tanja and Marglobe were late in maturity as compared to other varieties. Roma and Marglobe produced the highest Yield 9218.75 and 9140.75 kg/ha, respectively than the other varieties and local check proved to be the lowest yielder with (3596.25 kg/ha).
