  Maize, the leading world cereal is the third most important cereal in Pakistan following Wheat and Rice. Although, its direct utilization as human food (25%) is declining, its industrial (29%) and feed (35%) use is increasing. The normal maize lacks two of six essential amino acids, that is, lysine and tryptophan. The Quality Protein Maize (QPM) with higher protein and much higher tryptophan and lysine content has been shown to improve animal and human health. Keeping these facts in mind, a number of QPM hybrids have been constituted at National Agricultural Research Centre (NARC), Islamabad from the temperate and subtropical originated lines from CIMMYT. The data presented in this study indicate that 4 selected QPM hybrids performed well in comparison to commercial maize hybrids. The results on yield and other agronomic characteristics along with lysine content of QPM hybrids are presented and discussed. With high yield and better quality, the new QPM hybrids can lead to food, feed and nutritional security and help to alleviate poverty among resource-poor farmers of the country.

  Cotton germplasm representing twenty two mutants against one positive control S-12 was screened for resistance to CLCuV. BLOT inoculation was found useful in identifying CLCuV resistance. None of the mutant screened through grafting respond immune or highly resistant, while M-811, M-115, PIM-76-8, M-388 and M-564 behaved resistant. Moreover, PIM-76-1 and PIM-76-1a, were as highly susceptible as S-12. In contrast, screening under natural conditions was most useful for identifying insect resistant germplasm. Most of the mutants that were resistant or moderately resistant under BLGT inoculation were found immune or highly resistant under natural conditions. None of the test mutants was found susceptible or highly susceptible under field conditions.

  Two herbicides namely Logran and Tolkan were evaluated at three different rates i.e., low, medium and high on Inqulab and Pasban varieties of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). The results showed that herbicide activity index value was maximum with high rates and minimum with low rates of herbicides. Significant improvement was recorded in various morphological and yield components of wheat by low and medium rates while high rates caused detrimental effect. Recommended rates of both Logran and Tolkan produced about 37% greater grain yield than weedy check which was almost equal to hand weeding. Two varieties exhibited non-significant difference for various parameters.
