  The present study was undertaken to determine a suitable growth stage of maize crop for the application of nitrogen fertilizer for maximising yield and yield components of maize under agro-climatic conditions of Faisalabad. Maximum grain yield (5.27 t ha–1) alongwith highest harvest index (37.00%) per hectare was obtained for the crop raised by split N fertilization i.e. 1/3 at sowing + 1/3 at lst irrigation + 1/3 at flowering and lowest grain yield (2.93 t ha–1) and harvest index (23.50%) in control.

  Fertilizer levels were kept at 0, 100, 150, 200, 250 and 300 kg N/ha with a constant dose of 100 kg/ha of phosphorus and potash. Maize variety Sunehri was used as a source of trial. Treatment (200-100-100 kg NPK ha–1) seems to be most appropriate to get increased grain yield under the Faisalabad conditions. More precise studies of this nature however, are recommended to be carried out for further confirmation.

  The investigation was conducted to determine the effect of different levels of phosphorus fertilizer on growth and yield performance of Lentil (Lens culinaris medic) CV. Masoor-85. Flowering and maturity of the crop was significantly affected by different rates of phosphorus. Maximum 1000-grain weight (19.38 g) was recorded with the application of 75 kg P2O5 ha–1. Application of 75 kg P2O5 resulted in higher yield of 1250 kg ha-1.

  The various levels of ZnS04 included in the experiment were 0, 5, 10, 15 and 20 kg ha–1 applied at the time of pudding. The results showed that T3 (15 kg ZnSO4 ha–1) treatment produced maximum paddy yield (3.80 t ha–1) than all other treatments. This higher yield was attributed to increase number of fertile tillers m–2 and greater harvest index in this treatment as compared to other treatments. It was concluded that application of ZnS04 at 15 kg ha–1 at the time of puddling is the most economical to obtain higher yield under Faisalabad conditions.

  Different irrigation levels had significant effect on plant height, number of fruit-bearing branches per plant, number of grains per plant, 1000-grain weight, total plant biomass, grain yield and harvest index. Cultivar NM-92 gave significantly higher grain yield (1059 kg per ha.) and harvest index (21.42%) than NM-54 which gave grain yield and harvest index values of 992.3 kg per ha. And 20.27% respectively. Crop grown with three irrigations (I3) gave significant higher grain yield of 1248.8 kg per ha. Compared to the grain yield of 785.8 kg per ha. Obtained from the crop grown without irrigation (I0) throughout the growing period. NM-92 raised with three irrigations (V2 I3) produced maximum grain yield (1295.1 kg per ha.) while NM-54 gave minimum grain yield of 754.8 kg per ha. When grown without irrigation throughout the growing period (V, I0).
