  Bioeconomic efficiency of different rice-based intercropping systems under different patterns of strip plantation was determined at Faisalabad during the year 1997. Strip plantation of rice comprised 45-cm spaced 2-row strips, 75-cm spaced 4-row strips and 105-cm spaced 6-row strips while intercrops were maize, cowpea, sesbania and ricebean. All intercrops were utilized as green fodder crops. Although all intercrops caused substantial reduction in both plant biomass and paddy yield ha -1 of the associated rice yet additional fodder yield from each intercrop not only compensated the reduction in plant biomass and paddy yield of rice but also increased farm net income by 19.69 to 125.33 per cent. Thus both legume (cowpea, sesbania, ricebean) and non-legume (maize) fodder crops can be intercropped in the upland rice seeded on a well prepared seedbed in 75-cm spaced 4-row strips in order to increase farm income per unit area. Maize intercropping gives the maximum net income. Besides neither planting pattern nor intercropping affect the qualitative traits such as proportion of normal, fertile, sterile, abortive and opaque spikelets in a panicle of rice.

  Effect of water stress on growth and yield performance of four wheat cultivars viz. Pasban-90, Barani-83, Punjab-85 and Rohtas-90 was studied at University of Agriculture, Faisalabad, Water stress during reproductive development decreased grain yield ha of wheat compared with control through reduction in number of fertile tillers m–2 and grains per spike and 1000-grain weight but did not differ significantly from water stress during the vegetative development. Rohtas-90 produced higher grain yield than Barani-83 both under normal and water stress conditions but was statistically at par with Pasban-90 and Punjab-85. The result suggested that water stress during vegetative and reproductive development is equally injurious to wheat and adequate water supply throughout crop development is essential to harvest its maximum biological potential.
