  Poverty is the worst problem faced by the masses of Pakistan in general and by the masses of her North West Frontier Province (NWFP) in particular. Wheat is the staple food of the people of NWFP but it is always dependent on Punjab, the neighbouring province, for the wheat supply, because the yields produced in the province are very low. A series of agronomic experiments were conducted at the Agricultural Research Institute, Dera Ismail Khan (DIK) from 1997 to 2000, to formulate a package of production technology for the wheat growers of the province to increase their wheat yields. Various row spacings, fertilizer doses, crop varieties, sowing dates and seed rates were studied during the course of experiments. It was observed that improved varieties seeded at a seed rate of 120 kg ha-1 during mid November in narrow row spacing (20 cm) with optimum fertilizer rate (NPK: 120-90-30) produced higher yields. It was concluded that more than three times increase over the provincial mean wheat yield could be achieved by adopting the improved package of production technology.

  Wheat variety Pirsabak-04, having parentage KAUZ/STAR, was first evaluated at CCRI Pirsabak in 2000-01 in the Elite Spring Wheat Yield Trial (ESWYT). The trial had 50 lines including the local check variety Fakhre Sarhad and was obtained from the CIMMYT Mexico. The line at serial No. 22 in the ESWYT was selected along with other high yielding and disease resistant lines and was again tested under B-VI trial at CCRI in 2001-02. The B-VI trial was comprised of 20 entries including checks varieties Fakhre-Sarhad and Bakhtawar-92. High yielding and disease resistant lines in B-VI trial were further tested under microplot trial at different locations such as CCRI Pirsabak, Mardan and the Agricultural Research Station Mingora (Swat) in the NWFP during 2002-03. The line showed good performance in microplot trials and was again tested in the CCRI ELITE trials at CCRI during 2003-04. The line gave high yield and showed resistance to leaf and yellow rusts in National Uniform Wheat Yield Trial (NUWYT) during 2004-05. The results of ESWYT, B-VI, microplots, CCRI ELITE and NUWYT trials from 2000-01to 2004-05 confirmed the superiority of the line for higher yield and disease resistance. Because of its higher yield and resistance to yellow rust and leaf rust, this line was approved as a new variety by the Provincial Seed Council for cultivation in NWFP under irrigated conditions. It has been named as Pirsabak-04 and is recommended for both normal and late sowing. In late sowing, it can be grown from 25th November to 31st December.

  A set of 19 wheat genotypes of the First South Asia Harvestplus Yield Trial (SAMNYT) and one local check variety (Saleem-2000) were evaluated for yield and disease resistance in order to incorporate the high yielding and disease resistant entries in our indigenous wheat breeding program. The experiment was conducted at Cereal Crops Research Institute, Pirsabak, Nowshera (NWFP), Pakistan, under irrigated conditions during the growing season 2004-05. SAMNYT entries No. 9, 10, 13, 17, 18 and 20 performed tremendously well as compared with the local check variety. They produced significantly higher yields of 3360, 3680, 3700, 3390, 3500 and 3100 kg ha-1, respectively and higher resistance to stripe rust, while the local check produced grain yield of 2660 kg ha-1. Entries No. 7 and 14 produced grain yields (2920 and 2680 kg ha-1, respectively) almost equal to that of local check variety and showed higher resistance to stripe rust.

  The wheat variety Pirsabak Barani-05, having the parentage MUNIA/CHTO/ / AMSEL, was first tested at CCRI Pirsabak during 2001-02 in HRWYT (High Rainfall Wheat Yield Trial) trial received from CIMMYT (Centro Internacional de Mejoramiento de Maiz y Trigo) Mexico. The line was selected on the basis of high yield and disease resistance and was included in the advance yield trials B-VI for further testing at CCRI (Cereal Crops Research Institute) Pirsabak and at ARI (Agricultural Research Institute) Tarnab during 2002-03. This line was again selected on the basis of high yield and disease resistance and was included in microplot or regional wheat yield trials for testing at different locations i.e., CCRI Pirsabak, ARS (Agricultural Research Station) Serai Naurang and at ARS Buffa in the North-West Frontier Province during 2003-04. This line was included in the Rainfed National Uniform Wheat Yield Trial (NUWYT) during 2004-05 where it showed excellent yield disease resistance performance. The results of HRWYT, advance yield trials (B trial), regional yield trial (MPT) and the NUWYT from 2001-02 to 2004-05 confirmed its superiority in higher yield and resistance to yellow and leaf rusts because of which this line was approved by the Provincial Seed Council as a new wheat variety for cultivation in the rainfed areas of NWFP. It has been named as Pirsabak Barani-05 and is recommended for sowing from November 1st to December 15th in NWFP.

  Studies on the feasibility of intercropping sunflower (SF) in sugarcane (SC) under different geometrical patterns and fertilizer doses were conducted. Experiment comprised of three fertilizer levels viz., 140:100:100, 160:120:150 and 180:140:200 and seven geometrical pattern viz., sole sugarcane (SC), one row of sugarcane + one row of sunflower (SC 1 row + SF 1 row), SC 2-row strip + SF 1 row, SC 2-row strip + SF 2-rows, SC 3-row strip + SF 2-rows, SC 3-row strip + SF 3-rows, and sole SF. The main effect for fertilizer doses were statistically significant for all the parameters examined. The best performance for all the parameters was shown by the fertilizer application at the rate of 180:140:200 (NPK kg ha-1). The planting geometries differed significantly in affecting the yield parameters of the component crops. The planting geometry of 1SC+1SF gave the second highest net return of Rs.51307 after the sole crop of sugarcane in 1995 and the highest net return of Rs.51084 in 1996 followed by sole crop of sugarcane with net return of Rs.50296. This geometry produced the highest net return and caused the highest reduction in weed biomass thus it helped in avoiding weed control through chemicals, which bring about environmental pollution and hence it is recommended in autumn planted sugarcane for higher income.
