  Planting pattern and density effects on various agronomic traits of the fourth ratoon of sugarcane genotype SPSG-394 were determined during 1998-99 at the University of Agriculture, Faisalabad (Pakistan). Plant crop was raised during 1993-94 in three planting patterns, i.e. 100-cm spaced 100×100 squarish pits, 100-cm spaced circular pits with a diameter of 1 m and 90-cm spaced 2-row strips (30/90 cm) flat sowing at seeding densities of 10, 15, 20 and 25 buds m–2, using randomized complete block design. Ratoon of the crop planted in 90-cm spaced double-row strips (30/90 cm) gave significantly higher cane yield ha–1 than pit plantation while the converse was true for the sucrose content. Planting densities used for the plant crop had little effect on stripped cane yield but had significant effect on sucrose content. Ratoon of the crop planted at the lowest seeding density (10 buds m–2) produced juice with the maximum sucrose content against the minimum with a seeding density of 25 buds m–2. Interactive effect of planting pattern and seeding density on stripped cane yield, sucrose content and purity of juice was non-significant. The results suggest that sugarcane should be planted in 90-cm spaced double row strips at a seeding density of 25 buds m–2 in order to maximize can yield ha–1 of the ratoon crop while pit plantation be preferred for improving sucrose content and purity of cane juice.

  The intercropping proportions comprised 100 cm spaced 4-row strips of linseed intercropped with one, two , three and four rows of methra along with sole cropping of the component crops. Intercrop was sown between the strips of linseed at the time of planting linseed. Different yield components of linseed were invariably influenced significantly by the associated methra crop in different proportions. The yield of linseed intercropped with one, two, three and four rows of methra was reduced by 6.94 6.92 8.46 and 18.36 per cent respectively. However , at the cost of this much reduction in linseed yield an additional harvest of 156, 220, 326 and 379 kg ha-1 of methra was obtained from the respective intercropping patterns which compensated more than the losses caused in the yield of linseed. The highest total grain yield of 1223 kg ha-1 was recorded for linseed + three rows of methra intercropping system against the minimum of 980 kg ha-1 in case of linseed + one row of methra intercropping pattern. By contrast, the highest net income (Rs.7665 ha-1 ) was obtained from an intercropping pattern of linseed + four rows of methra against the minimum (Rs.3683 ha-1 ) in case of sole cropping of linseed. On the whole linseed-methra intercropping in different proportions gave 17 to 38 per cent yield advantage over mono cropping of the component crops with the maximum (38 %) in linseed + three rows of methra intercropping pattern.

  Crop irrigated at 25 and 50 percent ASMD gave 21.53 and 17.10 percent greater grain yield ha–1 than that irrigated at 75 percent ASMD. Application of P2O5 at 200, 150 and 100 kg ha–1 increased grain yield by 24.50, 20.31 and 13.64 percent, respectively over control. In general, maize irrigated at 25 percent ASMD gave significantly higher grain starch and ail content, than that irrigated of 75 percent ASMD, but it significantly decreased grain protein content. Similarly application of K2O significantly increased grain starch and oil content. However, K2O application had non-significant effect on grain protein content in 1992 but caused significant increase in 1993.
