  An experiment was conducted to determine the effect of different row spacing on grain yield and yield components of wheat variety Inqilab 91 at the agronomic research area, Faculty of Agriculture, Gomal University, D.I. Khan. The results revealed that different row spacing significantly affected plant population m-2, number of spikes m-2, 1000 grain weight, biological yield and grain yield. Number of grains spike-1, spikelets spike-1, spike length and harvest index remained non significant. Maximum tillers m-2 (418.5) and spikes m-2 (408) were observed at cross drill sowing techniques of 30 x 30 cm2. While maximum 1000 grain weight (48.70 g) were recorded at wider row spacing of 60 cm. Maximum biological yield (14.13 t ha-1) and grain yield (5.65 t ha-1) were also observed in cross drill sowing (30 x 30 cm2).

  Combined application of chemical fertilizer with farmyard manure increased the ears m -2 and grains per ear than alone application of organic or inorganic fertilizer to wheat variety Ghaznavi under the agro-climatic conditions of D.I.Khan, NWFP, Pakistan however both parameters i.e. ears per emerged seedling and grains per ear remained lower than the predicted yield in Ayah No. 261 of Surah Al-Baqrah of The Holy Quran. This variety produced the grain yield of 5.5 t ha -1 when fertilized with 20 t ha -1 FYM + 138 kg P2O5 t ha -1. Unfortunately this grain yield is far below than the grain yield (Y=axb) predicted in The Holy Quran which comes about 70 t ha -1. Therefore, it is suggested for the agricultural intellectuals to evolve varieties and agronomic techniques to achieve the grain yield predicted in The Holy Quran.

  Yield potential of six high ranking wheat varieties was determined in the light of wisdom described in the Holy Quran, using grain yield determining formula. The grain yield calculated is seven times less than the Holy Quranic predicted wheat yield. One reason of low wheat yield might be the lack of production of predicted fertile tillers (ears) containing 100 grains in the cultivated varieties. Second reason in our opinion is lack of efficient wheat production technologies for getting the Holy Quranic predicted yield of 70 t ha–1.

  The experiment consisted of two sorghum based inter-cropping system i.e. sorghum+guara and sorghum+cowpea in 1-row, 2-row and 3-row strips including sole cropping of all the component crops. Total fodder yield and mean land equivalent ratio (LER) was fairly high in all inter-cropping treatments but the highest LER 1.89 was recorded for sorghum-cowpea 3-rows inter-cropping system. This showed that 70-89 percent yield advantage was gained due to inter-cropping. However, maximum fodder yield of sorghum was obtained after three months of sowing from all the inter-cropped treatments.

  An experiment to determine the effect of nitrogen alone and in combination with phosphorus on the growth and yield of Brassica Juncea L.Cv. The N - P levels (kg ha–1) 0-0, 50-0. 100-0, 50-50, 100-50 and 150-50 were applied. The results revealed that plant height at maturity, number of branches, number of pods per plant, number of seed per pod and 1000 seed weight were affected significantly by N and N-P levels. Application of N-P at 100-50 kg ha–1 gave the highest seed yield. It was also noted that application of nitrogen over 100 kg ha–1 did not produce higher seed yield then 100-50 kg ha–1 N-P application.

  The results revealed that sowing method greatly affected the number of fertile tillers, biological yield, grain yield and harvest index value whereas grain spike–1 and 1000-grain weight were non significant. Among the method pore method supersede broadcast method. Similarly seed rates also highly significantly affected the grain yield and yield components except 1000-grain weight. Seed rate of 175 kg ha–1 produced grain yield of 5325. 13 kg ha–1 and proved to be the most economical seed rate. Though the interaction of methods and seed rates on number of fertile tillers and biological yield were highly significant, all other parameters were non significantly affected.
