  Cenchrus ciliaris a palatable and nutritious grass is a warm season grass. Arid and semi-arid rangeland are reseeded with Cenchrus ciliaris to enhance productivity, prolong grazing season and increase carrying capacity. A two ha land area was reseeded with Cenchrus ciliarisat target area Jamrud in June 1980, under barani conditions. Generally shoot biomass is determined at the end of growing season after seed maturity stage. Root shoot and root biomass of Cenchrus ciliarishas not estimated/determined at the end of spring season. The different growing season (spring summer) is lacking. Estimation of shoot and root biomass of Cenchrus ciliaris plant in two growing different seasons is essential in grazing management studies. At the beginnings of spring season reserve carbohydrates are used for the production of new shoots. The shoot biomass at the end of spring season is generally less compared to the end of summer season. The shoot and root biomass estimating of Cenchrus ciliaris plant at the end of two different growing season is required to devise the grazing management programme. This study is proposed to quantify the shoot and root biomass of Cenchrus ciliaris plant at the end of spring and summer growing seasons.

  Studies to see the comparative productive efficiency and feasibility of different sunflower based intercropping systems were conducted at Agronomic Research area, University of Agriculture, Faisalabad. Intercropping systems included sunflower alone, sunflower + mash and sunflower + mung. Sunflower was sown in 90 cm apart single rows as well as 90 cm apart double row strips. The results of studies indicated that when sunflower grown alone gave the maximum yield of 2.89 t ha‾1 followed by 2.75 t ha‾1 in 90 cm apart single row and 90 cm apart double row strips respectively as against when sunflower sown in combination with mung and mash, gave the yield of 2.41 and 2.24 t ha‾1. It is disserted that intercropping is more beneficial than sole cropping, although it has adverse effect on the main crop but this loss is compensated by additional harvest of intercrops in the term monetary returns. Among the various intercropping treatments sunflower-mashbean was appeared to be highly profitable and gave the highest income of Rs. 37995.51 with the highest BCR value of 3.72 was recorded in case of sunflower + mashbean as against minimum income of Rs. 27618.75 with BCR of 3.02 for sunflower alone in 90 cm apart double rows strips. Therefore intercropping can be practiced to maximize the crop production from the unit area under pertaining condition.
