  Six maize genotypes viz. EV-1089, EV-1098, EV-5089, EV-5098, EV-6089 and EV-6098 were tested for their yield performance under four different locations of Barani tract. A number of statistics such as genotype mean performance, genotypic variance, genotypic coefficient of variation, ecovalence and regression coefficients were estimated to evaluate the environments effect on the grain yield. Keeping in view the mean yield performance of the genotypes over locations and estimates of different statistics, genotype EV-5098 and EV-5089 may be considered relatively less sensitive to change in environments and can successfully be grown over varied soil and climatic conditions.

  A study was conducted to determine the effect of phosphorus and potassium application on growth and yield of mungbean on a sandy clay loam soil under irrigated conditions of Faisalabad. Plant height and number of branches per plant were significantly increased by phosphorus and potassium application. Number of pods per plant, number of seeds per pod, 1000-seed weight and grain yields were also increased significantly by application of phosphorus and potassium along with nitrogen. Application of P2O5 and K2O each at 70 kg ha -1 along with N application at 30 kg ha -1 produced highest grain yield of 876.32 kg ha -1.

The objective of the present study was to develop an effective protocol for optimum callus induction and complete plant regeneration for four varieties of rice (Oryza sativa L.) i.e., Super Basmati, Basmati-370, Basmati-371 and Fakhre Malakand. Calli were induced from mature seed scutelum. The Murashige and Skoog (MS) and Chu`s N6 media containing hormone 2, 4-D (2, 4-Dichlorophenoxy acetic acid) in different concentrations were used for callus induction. Fakhre Malakand produced maximum calli on N6 media containing 3 mg L-1 2,4-D. while other three varieties showed maximum callus induction on N6 media containing 2.5 mg L-1 2,4-D. N6 media was found better than MS media for callus induction. For complete plant regeneration the calli of two varieties i.e., Basmati-370 and Basmati-371 were plated on N6 media containing different concentrations of NAA (1-Naphthalene acetic acid) and BAP (6-benzyl aminopurine). The maximum regeneration frequency (%) was observed on N6 media containing NAA 1 mg L-1 and BAP 2.5 mg L-1. It took 27-30 days for the callus to regenerate into a complete plant. Basmati-370 produced 4-7 plantlets per callus whereas Basmati-371 produced 4-8 plantlets per callus with regeneration frequencies of 61 and 69%, respectively.

  The efficacy of Azodrin and Pirate (insecticides), Cascade (insect growth regulator) and Pressurized water spray (M.Y. strategy) was evaluated against insect pests of okra. Cascade was found to be the best efficient against Helicoverpe emigrate and Earias spp. Pirate showed maximum efficacy against Amrasca biguttuia biguttula, whereas, against Bemisia tabaci, the most effective treatment was Azodrin followed by M.Y. strategy.
