  In a field experiment, growth and grain yield of maize cultivar golden as influenced by different NP combinations were studied. The different NP combinations significantly affected the plant height, cob bearing plant m-2, number of grains cob-1, 1000-grains weight, grain yield and harvest index. The number of cobs plant¯1 was not influenced significantly by NP application. The NP application @ 180-130 kg ha-1 produced significantly higher grain yield (4.62 t ha-1) than all other NP combinations. The increase in yield was mainly due to higher 1000-grains weight, number of grains per cob and number of cobs bearing plant per plot. The results indicated that NP fertilizers should be applied @ 180-130 Kg ha-1 to obtain higher grain yield of maize cultivar golden under Faisalabad (Pakistan) conditions.

  Response of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cultivar Inqulab-91 to nitrogen application of 120 kg ha -1 at different growth stages (full at sowing, full at tillering, half at sowing and half at tillering, half at sowing and half at flowering, half at tillering and half at flowering and 1/3 at sowing, 1/3 at tillering and 1/3 at flowering) was studied under field conditions during 1993-94. Grain yield and various yield components like plant height, total number of tillers m -2, fertile tillers m -2, number of grains per spike, 1000-grain weight and harvest index were affected significantly by nitrogen application at different growth stages. Maximum grain yield of 84.31 q ha -1 was obtained where nitrogen was applied in three equal splits (1/3 at sowing, 1/3 at tillering and 1/3 at flowering) and it was followed by full at tillering and full at sowing which yielded 80.47 q ha -1 and 80.07 q ha -1, respectively. The nitrogen in three equal splits (1/3 at sowing, 1/3 at tillering and 1/3 at flowering) should be applied for getting higher grain yield of wheat in Faisalabad conditions.

  Seed yield in green gram was increased progressively with phosphorus application up to 75 kg P2O5 ha–1. The application of P2O5 more than 75 kg ha–1 depressed the yield and yield components. Maximum increase in seed yield, recorded at 75 kg P2O5 ha–1 was about 92% of control. Higher seed yield with phosphorus application was related to the higher number of pod bearing branches, number of pods per plant, number of seeds per pod and 1000-grain weight. Protein contents were also influenced significantly by phosphorus application, being maximum (27.01%) at phosphorus level of 75 kg ha–1. Phosphorus application of 75 kg ha–1 seems to be the optimum level for harvesting higher yield in green gram.

  Two varieties of maize viz., Neelum and Akbar were compared at seed rates of 75, 100, 125 and 150 kg ha–1 in Faisalabad conditions. Varieties showed non-significant differences for all parameters studied except dry matter yield. Cultivar Akbar gave significantly more DM yield (7.18 t ha–1) than Neelum (6.09 t ha–1). Seeding densities showed significant effects growth and yield parameters. Plant height, green fodder yield, dry matter yield and crude fibre percentage was increasing with increasing seed density, whereas, the increase in crude fibre percentage could not reach to a significant level. While stem diameter, leaf area plant–1, crude protein percentage, total ash percentage and ether extractable fat percentage decreased significantly with increased seed rate. The cultivar Akbar and seed rate of 150 kg ha–1 seems to be the best for producing higher fodder yield of maize in Faisalabad conditions.

  Response of two sunflower cultivars namely Aritar-93 and suncom-110 to N levels of 0, 50, 100 and 150 kg ha–1 was studied under field conditions. Sunflower cultivar suncom-110 produced significantly higher plant height, leaf area per plant, 1000-achene weight and achene yield. Plant height, leaf per plant, stem diameter, no. of achenes per disc and achene protein contents were maximum at N level of 150 kg ha–1. Whereas, oil contents were significantly higher in control. Nitrogen application at 100 and 150 kg ha–1 gave statistically similar achene yields of 15.95 and 16.18 q ha–1 respectively. Application of nitrogen more than 100 kg ha–1 seems to be uneconomical.

  Response of three sugarcane cultivars namely BL-4, SPSG-26 and SPSG-394 to NPK levels of 0-0-0, 200-0-0, 200-150-150 and 200-200-200 kg was studied under field conditions. Variety SPSG-394 gave the highest cane yield of 107.67 tons ha–1 compared to 88.85 and 58.53 tons ha–1 for the varieties BL-4 and SPSG-26, respectively. An increase of 16.27 and 26.13 tons ha–1 over control was recorded with the application of 200 kg N ha–1 alone and 200-150-150 kg NPK ha–1, respectively, Sucrose contents and commercial cane sugar were not affected significantly by fertilizer application. However, variety SPSG-26 gave significantly higher sucrose contents (18.82%) and commercial cane sugar (12.89%) than SPSG-394 and BL-4. The fertilizer application at 200-150-150 kg NPK ha–1 was found to be optimum level for achieving maximum cane yield.

  Response of two varieties of sugarcane namely SPSG-26 and SPSG-394 to seeding densities of 75,000, 100,000, 125,000 and 150,000 sets ha–1 was studied under field conditions. SPSG-394 produced higher cane yield (64.80 t ha–1) than SPSG-26 (52.64 t ha–1) due to higher cane density, cane length and weight cane–1. However, SPSG-26 gave higher sucrose content and commercial cane sugar (C.C.S.) percentage. Seeding densities also affected significantly cane density, cane length, weight cane–1, cane yield, sucrose content and C.C.S. percentage. A significant decrease in cane yield was observed when crop was sown with seeding densities higher than 75,000 sets ha–1. Therefore, seeding density of 75,000 sets ha–1 seems to be optimum for obtaining higher yield of sugarcane. However, maximum sucrose content (17.45%) and C.C.S. (11.87%) were obtained when crop was sown at a seeding density of 100,000 sets ha–1.
