  A study was conducted in Kahuta to enlist the medicinal plants. The inhabitants of the area have to use the medicinal plants for various purposes and have for a long time been dependent on surrounding plant resources for their food, shelter, fodder`s, health, care and other cultural purposes. However changes in their life styles are responsible for the decrease of practice in the local use of herbs for medicine. It is, therefore, felt worth while to record the native uses of these plants before the information is to be lost. In total 25 species of herbs belonging to 18 families were recorded, used medicinally by inhabitants of the area . Some of the most interesting and representative plants of the area are : Cyperus rotundas L. which is mainly used for cholera ,dyspepsia and fevers. Saussuoria heteromala D. Don is used as a tonic for animals . The oil of Pongamia pinnata (L.) Merrill is externally applied to cure herpes and eczema .Leaves of Euphorbia helioscopia L. are given to cure mad dogs . Boerhavia diffusa useful for jaundice and liver complaints .

  A study was conducted to investigate the soil fertility status of Quaid -I- Azam University Campus Islamabad for the provision of guidelines to researchers and farmers for better crop production. A total of thirty composite soil samples were collected, analyzed and classified for texture, soil pH, electrical conductivity (EC), organic matter, available phosphorus and potassium. Texture of the soil varied, sandy loam (10%), loam (47%), and clay loam (43%). The pH values ranged between 6.9-8.5.Out of total all soil samples were normal with no hazard of salinity. Organic matter was deficient or poor in 93% samples and satisfactory in 7% samples. Available phosphorus was poor in 77% samples, satisfactory in 3% samples and adequate in 20% samples. In available potassium 60% soils in Quaid -I- Azam University have satisfactory level and 40% samples fall in adequate level.
