  Nitrogen uptake efficiency in wheat (Tritcum aestivum L.) as influenced by nitrogen level and weed-crop competition duration was determined at the Agronomic Research Area, University of Agriculture, Faisalabad during 1998-99. The data showed that yield, yield parameters of wheat, weed growth and nitrogen uptake by weeds increased with increased nitrogen application levels while weed population was not affected significantly. On the other hand yield and yield parameters in wheat decreased with an increase in the weed-crop competition durations while weed growth and nitrogen uptake by weeds increased by increasing the competition duration.

  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.

  Effect of different tillage intensities in combination with herbicide application or interculture on growth and yield of maize was investigated at Student Farm, Department of Agronomy University of Agriculture, Faisalabad during 1997. Maximum grain yield (4.92 t h–1) along with highest net benefit (Rs. 38660/=) per hectare was obtained for the crop raised with tilling the soil twice followed by herbicide application against the lowest grain yield (2.72 t ha–1) and net benefit (Rs. 20890/ =) per hectare for the crop grown at zero tillage followed by interculture.

  The interactive effect of varying levels of phosphorus viz. 75, 100 and 125 kg/ha with that of potassium viz. 50, 75 and 100 kg/ha on the growth and yield of hybrid maize "Shahensha" was studied at the agronomic research area, University of Agriculture, Faisalabad during the year 1997. The results revealed that the highest grain yield of 6.02 t/ha and thousand grain weight 405.2 g respectively were obtained from the plot fertilized at the rate of 125-75 PK kg/ha against the lowest grain yield (4.20 t/ha) and 1000 grain weight (372.4 g) were obtained from the control plots. This increase in grain yield was attributed to increased leaf area per plant, greater cob length, increased number of grains per cob and the heavier grain weight.
