  85 new wheat selections were assessed and compared with the three standard local checks based on the combined analysis in five preliminary wheat yield trials. The combined analysis has the advantage by improving the selection efficiency of the new genotypes tested in different yield trials conducted in the same year and location. Seven out of the total selections tested out yielded the standard check varieties after making the adjustments in the treatment means. This analysis gave an equal chance to the new selections tested in the different trials which otherwise may have been overlooked.

  The current zoning system appears unduly complicated and of little relevance to wheat breeding, as there is no evidence of distinct target areas. A broad but sparser sampling than the present system is recommended. Overall adaptation should be routinely assessed, by ranking and AMMI analyses, from the resultant smaller data sets each year. There is strong evidence of a flow of germplasm far superior than Pak-81, with respect to both yield and adaptation. It is suggested that same genotypes should be tested at least for two years on the same locations to get better results.

  Response of various population densities towards yield was tested in Pajnad-88, Pirsabak-85 and Chakwal-86 under natural rainfed conditions. Harvest index, spike length, number of spikelets/spike, grains/spike tend to decrease significantly with increase in seed rate. Plant height and grain weight was not significantly affected by seed rate. Maximum yield was obtained with seed rate of 60 kg ha–1.
