  This study was conducted to assess the influence of season on rooting ability of olive cuttings during the year 2000-2001. Leafy semi-hard wood cuttings were taken from 10 years old olive tree of cultivar "Leccino". The length of cuttings ranged from 10 to 12 cm, with at least 3 to 4 leaves/cutting. The cuttings were collected at fortnightly interval commencing from 15th February to Ist April, 15th July to Ist November and 15th October to Ist December, 2000. The basal portion of the cuttings were treated with talcum powder containing 0.3% Indolebutyric acid (IBA). The treated cuttings were planted in coarse sand in fiber glasshouse under mist. The maximum temperature and relative humidity in fiber glasshouse was 25 to 35 ° C and 75 to 85% respectively. The highest rooting percentage (82%) was obtained in spring season cuttings on 15th February which was significantly higher than those obtained on the other times of the year. The other times of the years showing promise were 15th July and Ist March, where 70 and 65% of rooting was obtained respectively. The cuttings planted on Ist April produced significantly higher number of roots/cutting (13.5) than rest of planting period of the year. The higher plant survival percentage (90 to 93%) was observed in the cuttings planted during 15 Oct to Ist December.

  Eleven advanced lines/cultivars of pea were tested for yield and resistance against powdery mildew under natural conditions of infection. All the lines were found to be resistant while the local cultivars (Climax and PF-400) proved highly susceptible. Significant differences were observed between the yield of local cultivars and those of the advanced lines. Advanced lines out yielded local cultivars. However, the lines 91-1, 91-3 and 91-2 were outstanding with yields of 22.9, 21.6 and 19.6 tones ha-1 respectively.

  An experiment was designed to study the morphological and yield behavior of nine exotic and one local cultivar of tomato under Islamabad conditions. Characters studied were time required to flowering, fruit setting, fruit ripening, yield/plant and yield ha-1. Significant difference in the parameters except days to maturity were observed which could be attributed to inherited differences among cultivars. Cultivar marmande (TMV) took significantly minimum time (65.0 days) to ripen followed by S. marzano which ripened in 72.3 days. Cultivar polefemo ripened late (91.7 days) followed by marmande which took 88.7 days to ripen. Cultivars marmande TMV and marmande out yielded other cultivars with 64.29 and 62.99 t ha-1, respectively while poor yield was obtained in S. marzano (14.90 t ha-1).

  The study was conducted to examine the effect of set size on bolting, bulb yield and quality in onion cultivar ‘Phulkara’ during autumn season 2001. Highest percentage of bolting (31.1 %) and doubles (69.4 %) was recorded in large sets of 29 mm diameter. In large size sets (29 mm diameter) bulbs matured in minimum time (134.5 days). Highest marketable bulb yield (26 t ha-1) was obtained with 17 mm diameter set followed by 20 and 23 mm diameter yielding 22.9 and 20.0 t ha-1, respectively. Large size sets (26 and 29 mm diameter) produced significantly higher un-marketable bulb yield of 13.9 and 14.9 t ha-1, respectively.

  The performance of eight tomato hybrids was studied under plastic tunnel for number of days to flowering and maturity, number and weight of fruit per plant, single fruit weight and yield. The sequential pickings in tomato hybrids started in second week of December 1991 and finished in the last week of March 1992. The cultivars parana and turquesa matured earlier taking 95.25 and 98.75 days, respectively. The cultivar turquesa with maximum fruit weight plant-1 exhibited the highest yield of 20.45 kg m-2 followed by fortara, royesta and jacinto yielding 19.55, 18.92 and 18.30 kg m-2, respectively.

  Eight pea cultivars namely, lincoln, napolitano, piccolo, P. alberto, caravella, rondo, S. gennaro and climax were evaluated for their performance with regard to seed yield. Cultivar rando produced the maximum number of pods (18.8), while caravella produced the minimum number of pods (8.8) per plant. The maximum 1000-seed weight was recorded in S. gennaro (319.0 g) followed by caravella (286.3 g), piccolo (274.3 g) and napolitano (271.7 g). The seed yield in various cultivars ranged from 1.43 to 1.91.

  The effects of seedling/set size and planting times on bulb yield and quality in onion cultivar Phulkara were studied during autumn season 2000. The bulbs of seedlings and sets were graded in three sizes of 2.5, 3.5 and 4.5 mm diameter and 7.5, 12.5 and 17.5 mm diameter, respectively and were sown on 15th August and Ist September, 2000. Highest mean marketable bulb yield (21.2 tha-1) was obtained using 17.5 mm diameter size sets and seedling with 4.5 mm diameter bulbs. However, the crop sown with 17.5 mm diameter sets on 1st September, produced significantly highest marketable bulb yield of 24.6 tha-1 and also gave highest percentage of doubles (17.9 %). Sets with 17.5 mm diameter though produced highest percentage of doubles but also gave highest marketable bulb yield and are therefore recommended for planting autumn season crop in first week of September.
