  Thirteen genotypes developed for rainfed areas of Pakistan viz., NR-155, 97C027, SN-6, PR-72, BWL-9736, NR-149, 96R37, DN-14, V-97005, 95C004, NR-178, CHAKWAL-97, SN-16, were evaluated for stability of grain yield under twelve diverse environments. The interaction between the genotypes and environments (G X E interaction) was used as an index to determine the yield stability of genotypes under all the environments. Both predictable (linear) and unpredictable (non-linear) portions of variation were found to be significant indicating equal importance in determining the stability of grain yield. The genotypes "96R37" and SN-16" were the most adapted showing considerable good performance in the entire set of environments under study.

  Various techniques are applied to control the pest damage to (pome) crops in different countries of the world. Among the integrated pest management programmes (IPCP), mating disruption (MD) approach has its own advantages over pesticide techniques being less hazardous to environment. An exhaustive systematic field trial surveys were conducted to explore the seasonal activities of Codling Moth (CM) Cydia pomonella under natural conditions and the (MD) method was applied to Control Maling Disruption (CM) damage to apple (pome) crops in area of Azad Jammu and Kashmir, (Pakistan). Mating Disruption (MD) technique offers several advantages over pesticide sprays methods and, MD reduces CM damage. The present study describes the assessment of time of pest infestation, peak flight temporal and spatial variation of CM (Cydia pomonella) in two different experimented habitats by the use of pheromone trap approach. For experimental data, two distinct flight periods of CM were recorded, suggesting two generations per year. The pest population density was observed to be the highest in the first weeks of May and July. It was concluded that by application of the MD technique a better growth of pome crops can be obtained. Hence, for sustainable and comprehensive fruit farming, a more widespread use of pheromones technique (Mating Disruption- MD) may be useful step to enhance the agricultural yield of apple (pome) crops

  Colletotrichum gloeosporioides Penz. produced excellent mycelial growth with maximum acervuli and spores on PDA with least on water agar. The best temperature was 25±2°C and pH between 7 to 8 under continuous light. Growth and acervuli production of pathogen was excellent when basal medium was supplemented with glucose as carbon source. Te 60 showed the maximum inhibition on mycelial growth and acervuli production at all concentrations.

  A set of twenty elite bread wheat lines including one standard variety were evaluated in order to determine the selection criteria for identification of high yielding lines in bread wheat. The results showed that all varieties having highly significant variation for days to heading, days to maturity, plant height, 1000-kernel weight, test weight and grain yield. Grain yield was positively correlated with 1000-kernel weight and test weight while the other traits i.e, days to heading, days to maturity and plant height showed negative correlation. The results indicated that 1000 kernel weight had positive direct effect on grain yield. It was concluded that selection be made considering 1000-kernel weight and test weight.

  Nine genotypes of wheat developed for rainfed areas of Pakistan viz., DN-18, NRL-9822, NR-200, V-99166, 98C013, V-3, PR-72, NR-181 and SN-7 were evaluated for stability of grain yield under seventeen diverse rainfed environments. The interaction between the genotypes and environments (G X E interaction) was used as an index to determine the yield stability of genotypes under all the environments during 2001-02. Both predictable (linear) and unpredictable (non-linear) portions of variation were found to be significant indicating equal importance in determining the stability of grain yield. The genotype V-99166 was the most adapted showing considerable good performance in the entire set of environments under study.

  Present research work was conducted to study the clinical efficacy of coded herbal medicine Arthritin in comparison with Methotrexate for treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. One hundred patients with rheumatoid arthritis were randomly assigned into two groups, 50 in each group. Test group was treated with Arthritin and control group was treated with Methotrexate. The effect of both drugs for treatment of rheumatoid arthritis was observed before and after treatment. Comparison of data recorded by physician relating to these variables showed significant differences between test and control groups (p<0.05). The efficacy of the test treated medication (Arthritin) was superior as p = 0.03. Arthritin is more effective than the Methotrexate in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis.

  Ginger has been used for centuries to support many various digestive imbalances including heartburn, indigestion, nausea, diarrhea and motion sickness. Zingiber officinale is commonly prescribed to treat nausea, but it is also used as an anti-inflammatory agent and cholesterol-lowering herb. Ginger is considered safe for supplemental use. It has anticoagulant affects also. This drug is prescribed in gout, rheumatoid arthritis and other inflammatory conditions.
