  The field research was conducted at Student’s Experimental Farm, Sindh Agriculture University, Tandojam, Pakistan to assess the suitable nitrogen level for inoculated and un-inoculated soybean. The treatments 0, 50 and 75 kg N ha-1 were applied to the inoculated and un-inoculated soybean. The results of the experiment exhibited more pods per plant, maximum seeds per pod, heavier seed weight, seed index, highest nodule number and outstanding seed yield performances were observed in the plots treated with 50 kg N ha-1+inoculum (R.japonicum), followed by 75 kg N ha-1+inoculum. However, yield and yield components showed less response in the un-inoculated plots receiving no fertilizer application. The results further revealed that as the fertilizer levels increased or decreased from 50 kg N ha-1 in the inoculated plots all the observed plant characters significantly decreased. Thus, 50 kg N ha-1 and seed inoculation are recommended for achieving maximum seed yield and its contributing components.

  The field experiment was conducted at Students’ Experimental Farm, Sindh Agriculture University Tandojam, Pakistan to assess the maize growth and fodder yield under varying combinations of organic manure (Farm Yard Manure (FYM) at the rate of 1500, 3000 and 4500 kg ha-1) and inorganic fertilizers (0, 60, 90, 120 and 150 kg N ha-1). The results revealed that all the maize plant parameters were significantly affected with the incorporation of FYM and nitrogen levels. Among the plant characters, tall plants, maximum stem girth, more green leaves and highest maize fodder yield were observed with the application of 120 kg N ha-1 with combination of 3000 FYM. It was concluded that the inorganic nitrogen application is the common practice of the farmers, but if, farmyard manure will be supplemented there may be significant increase in maize fodder yield.

  The field experiment was conducted at Agro climatic conditions of Rawalakot, Azad Kashmir for evaluation of various canola genotypes for seed and oil potentials. The ten canola entries: Canola-1, Canola-2, Shiralle, Oscar, Dunkled, Rainbow, PR-1002, PR-1005, PR-1003 and PR-1007 were sown in rain fed conditions. The result showed the superiority of Rainbow variety for recording the higher seed and oil yields and was recommended for achieving satisfactory yield.

  The field experiment was conducted to evaluate the agronomic and economic interference between cotton and pigeon pea at Students Farm, Sindh Agriculture University Tandojam, Pakistan. The intercropping pigeon pea with cotton showed adverse effects on all the growth and yield contributing parameters of cotton. In pigeon pea, the taller plants (300 cm), greater number of branches (12.33 plant-1), remarkably higher pods (223.66 plant-1), heavy seed index (103.33 g) and maximum seed yield (2182.33 kg ha-1) were observed in sole cropping system. In cotton, maximum plant height (164.00 cm), more production of bolls plant-1 (26.33), higher number of branches plant-1 (37.33), greater bolls plant-1 (16.66) and satisfactory seed cotton yield (2271 kg ha-1) were recorded when cotton was sown as sole crop. The agronomic parameters ob both intercrops decreased as compared to sole crops. The economic analysis indicated that cotton sole crop on an average recorded cost of production Rs. 31098 ha-1 against Rs. 26000 ha-1 intercropping of cotton with pigeon pea. The physical productivity study includes the total seed cotton yield of cotton as a sole crop and the total yield of cotton from intercropping with pigeon pea. The cotton sole crop yielded 2271.00 kg ha-1 and cotton intercropping with pigeon pea yielded 1120.00 kg ha-1. According to average per hectare revenue, productivity of cotton sole Rs. 56775.00 and intercropping cotton with pigeon pea Rs. 28000 ha-1. The cotton sole crop on average recorded net returns at the rate of Rs.25677 ha-1 whereas, cotton with pigeon pea intercropping exhibited the net returns at the rate of Rs. 2000 ha-1, which was very low due to adverse affect of pigeon pea intercropping with cotton. In this study input output ratio were determined to examine economic efficiency of both cotton sole and cotton intercropping with pigeon pea. The results derived from the above analysis reveal that growing cotton sole crop earned input output ratios at the proportion of 1:87 whereas, cotton intercropping with pigeon pea had input output ratio at the proportion 1:07. It was concluded that cotton-pigeon pea intercropping has adverse effects on each other, therefore the crops should be sown as sole crops.

  An experiment was conducted at Students Farm, Sindh Agriculture University, Tandojam, Pakistan to assess the NP requirement (0-0, 50-25, 75-37.5 and 100-50 NP kg ha-1) for soybean varieties (Bossier and Pelican). The highly significant differences for varieties and fertilizer combinations for plant height, index and seed yield per hectare were observed. Whereas, non-significant differences were recorded under number of pods per plant. The variety Pelican under 100-50 kg NP ha-1 produced taller plants (66. 25 cm) and more number of pods (55.00 plant-1). However, the seed index (14.00 g) and seed yield (3007 kg ha-1) were superior in variety Bossier with the application of 75-37.5 kg NP ha-1.

  The field experiment was conducted at Sugarcane Section, Agriculture Research Institute, TandoJam, Pakistan, during the year 2001-2002 for parameters of sugarcane varieties of other province with the locally evolved commercial variety Gulabi-95. The collection sources were, NARC Islamabad, SRI Faisalabad, SCRI Mardan, PARC Thatta and A.R.I. Tandojam. Among the tested varieties (CP-88/1165, SPF-213, ML-7, FAC-81-745, Thatta-10 and Gulabi-95). The local evolved commercial Gulabi-95 recorded maximum germination percentage, lengthy canes, more internode number, millable canes and cane yield. However, the qualitative parameters i.e. Brix and C.C.S which are important for evolving variety were found higher in the ML-7 sugarcane variety. It is recommended that further research should be performed on ML-7 and Thatta-10 as both varieties seems to be better in qualitative parameters.
