  Maximum plant height (139.83 cm) and late sprouting was recorded in englique. Maximum number of flowers per plant (41.00) was observed in the rose variety, daydream. Alexendra and paradise had the maximum flower size (7.93 cm) maximum number of petals (59.20) in yankee doodle and longest life persistency (17.17 days) in golden times was recorded. The maximum vase life of 8.00 days was observed in variety freesia, whereas the maximum number of branches per plant (12.50) was noted in paradise. In conclusion, alexendra and paradise are recommended for out door beautification due to their large flower size and golden times is recommended for long flower persistency. For cut flower production freesia is recommended due to its vase life.

  The effect of three different growth regulators viz: Naphthalene Acetic Acid (NAA), Indole Acetic Acid (IAA) and Indole Butyric Acid (IBA) each at five concentration levels (0.0, 0.05, 0.15, 0.25 and 0.35) was evaluated on meristem culture of Potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) for production of virus-free plantlets. The parameters included were plantlet height, number of nodes/plantlet, number of leaves/plantlet, root length and number of roots/plantlet. Maximum plantlet height (9 cm) with NAA at 0.15 mg l-1, higher number of nodes/plantlet (9.714) with IBA at 0.35 mg l-1 and maximum number of leaves/plantlet (6.143) with IAA at 0.25 mg l-1 were recorded.

  The data obtained revealed that maximum plant height (422 cm), number of flowers (532), number of fruits per tree (940), fruit length (19.11 cm) and average fruit yield per tree (61.22 kg) were recorded in 1.5-1.5-0.75 NPK kg/plant. Maximum plant girth (78 cm) and maximum fruit weight (133.5 g) was found in 1.5-0.75-00 NPK kg/plant. Whereas, maximum number of inflorescence/ shoot (23.7) was recorded in 00-00-00 NPK kg/plant.

  A trial was conducted to see the effect of different row spacing and cutting on the growth and yield of Spinach. The results showed that the differences in row spacing were non-significant for Plant height (cm), number of leaves, fresh foliage yield (kg ha-1) and dried foliage yield (kg ha -1). Broadcast method of sowing produced the most prominent results in all the parameters studied, giving the maximum plant height of 25.58 cm, maximum number of leaves (11.61), maximum fresh foliage yield of 2255 kg ha -1 and maximum dried foliage yield of 218.7 kg ha-1. The cuttings showed significant differences for plant height (cm), fresh and dried foliage yield (kg ha -1), whereas the cuttings showed a non-significant behavior for number of leaves. First cutting showed maximum plant height of 26.66 cm, whereas the second cutting gave the maximum number of leaves (11.17), fresh foliage yield of 2329 kg ha -1 and dried foliage yield of 222.7kg ha -1.

  It was found that the maximum length of the branches were observed in unpruned trees. Maximum number of branches (110.00) number of leaves per branch (37.67), number of cluster per plant, (85.00) number of fruits per cluster (58.33), weight of cluster per plant 42.36 g and total yield per plant (3.64kg), was observed in the pruning level of 90 cm above the ground level, while the minimum, in all the above mentioned parameters, were found in un-pruned trees.

  The effect of different pruning intensities as factor-A and various pruning dates as factor-B on the production of phalsa was checked. Pruning levels significantly affected the days taken to sprouting, flowering, fruit setting, number of branches/plant, length of branches, number of fruit clusters/plant and weight of clusters. Among different pruning intensities, 100 cm gave maximum number of clusters/plant (1771) and also the highest yield/plant (18.41 kg). Various pruning dates significantly affected the days taken to sprouting, number of leaves/branch and number of branches/plant. Pruning at 22 Dec. produced maximum number of fruit clusters/plant (1660) and the highest yield/plant (18.17 kg).

  Various plant spacing resulted in the increased plant height, onion bulb size, weight of the bulbs, number of the bulbs per plot and yield of the bulbs. In case of different nitrogen levels, all the parameters under the study were significantly affected. However, 12 cm plant spacing with 100 kg N ha -1 gave the best results. Maximum yield of onion bulbs (22.90 and 22.82 t ha -1) was obtained from 12 cm plant spacing with 100 kg N ha -1, respectively.

  An experiment on Tinda Gourd cv. local was conducted at the experimental area of Faculty of Agriculture, Gomal University, D.I. Khan during 1995 to determine the best date of sowing for obtaining high yield. Experiment comprises six dates of sowing viz. 28th Feb., 10th March, 20th March, 30th March, 9th April and 19th April, 1995. The parameters in this regard were days taken to germinate, flowering, fruit setting, maturity of first fruit, vine length (cm), fruit weight (g), number of fruits per vine and yield (tones/ha). The results obtained were significantly differed at 5% level of probability. The studies pertaining effect of different sowing dates showed that early seed sowing of Tinda speed up the germination days, flowering, fruit setting, maturity of first fruit and vine length. The yield results indicated that March is the best date of the sowing Tinda gourd under the agro-climatic conditions of D.I. Khan. This study also revealed early sowing to give better yield performance than late sowing.

  The effect of different concentration of Indole Butyric Acid (IBA) on root inintiation of apple cuttings. IBA was applied in five different concerntrations (1000 ppm, 2000 ppm, 3000 ppm, 4000 ppm and 5000 ppm)to study number of days to bud sprouting, number of shoots per cuttings, shoot length, number of leaves per cuttings, number of roots per cutting, root length and survival percentage. Significant results were obtained from all the parameters except number of leaves per cutting. Minimum days (15.00) to bud sprouting were recorded in cuttings treated with 3000 ppm, while maximum days were taken by untreated cuttings. Maximum number of shoots (3.00) and maximum shoot length (8.00 cm) were obtained from 3000 ppm, while same were minimum in case of Ti (control). Maximum number of roots (7.00) and maximum root length (11.25 cm) were observed in cuttings treated with 3000 ppm, while minimum number of roots (4.00) and minimum root length (7.00 cm) were observed in control. Best plant survival (76.67 %) was given with 3000 ppm concerntration, while it was minimum (16.67 %) when the cuutings were not treated with IBA.

  An experiment was conducted to investigate the effect of different growing media on the growth and development of Dahlia (Dahlia pinnata). Seven different growing media including sand, silt, leaf mold, sand + silt, sand + leaf mold, silt + leaf mold and sand + silt + leaf mold, were used to check the growth and development of dahlia in pots. The over all best performance was recorded in media sand + silt + leaf mold for almost all the parameters; plant height (42.08 cm), stem thickness (1.93 cm), number of branches per plant (3.6), minimum days to flowering (91.66), number of flowers per plant (10.6), number of petals per flower (13), diameter of flower (8.8 cm) and vase life of flower (5 days). The media leaf mold alone also performed significantly well for all the parameters including the maximum 42.55 leaves per plant. Sand, when used alone as a growing medium showed the least response and provided unsatisfactory results for all the parameters.

  A research project to evaluate the effect of different plant spacing on the production of cauliflower was conducted at Horticulture Research Area, Faculty of Agriculture, Gomal University, Dera Ismail Khan, NWFP, Pakistan. Six different plant spacing viz., 30, 35, 40, 45, 50 and 55 cm were used. The results revealed significant variations in all the parameters and amongst various plant spacing, 45 cm spacing showed the best response for all the parameters. Maximum plant height (49.33 cm), curd diameter (19.13 cm), maximum curd weight (1.23 kg plant-1) and yield (30.77 t ha-1) were recorded in the plots where the plants were spaced 45 cm apart.

  Frye Litchi cultivars viz Purbi, Bedana, Serai, Bombai and Gola were evaluated for their morphological characteristics and physic-chemical composition. The highest yield of 15.52 kg per plant was recorded in cv. Serai compared to the least (7.72 kg/Tree) by Bedana. The mean fruit weight, length diameter were 13.94 g. 3.20 cm and 2.55 cm respectively. Reducing, non-reducing and total sugars varied from 4.47 to 6.92, 4.10 to 5.30 and 8.60 to 11.60% respectively. Vitamin-C content ranged from 45.72 to 60.02 mg/100g pulp. "Bedana" proved to be of the best quality with low acidity and highest sugars; TSS Vitamin-C and pulp contents.
