  A field experiment was undertaken for evaluating the performance of three lentil genotypes with phosphorus (P) fertilization at four rates: 0, 40, 60, and 80 kg P2O5 ha-1 under rain-fed conditions. Genotypes of lentil were: Masoor-93, Markaz-2001, and NARC-02/2. Masoor-93 showed the highest seed yield, crop-growth rate, net assimilation rate, and seed protein contents among all the tested cultivars. P applied at the highest rate (80 kg ha-1) caused the best positive response with respect to physiological traits, growth attributes, and yield components. Furthermore, the application of P-fertilizer was found to be feasible in economic terms, as the net return, value-to-cost ratio, and relative increase in income were enhanced successively at higher phosphorus rates. It was concluded that for maximum potential yield of lentil, genotype Masoor-93 is the best suited under rain-fed conditions provided that its P nutrition is enhanced. The pronounced genetic variability in lentil-yield traits suggests that nutrient-efficient germplasm can be screened through breeding programmes to promote lentil production.

  A factorial experiment comprised of two varieties viz. B-385 (V2) and KS-282 (V1) along with four fertilizer treatments, was conducted at University of Agriculture, Faisalabad. The treatments for nitrogen application techniques used were T1 (control), T2 (½ N + total P + total K applied at transplanting). T3 (1/3 N at transplanting, 1/3 N at tillering and 1/3 N at flowering stage) and T4 (total NPK applied at transplanting). V1 produced more panicles bearing tillers (7.76), 1000-grain weight (22.97 gm), paddy yield (2.92 kg), No. of tillers (8.16), No. of spikelets (122.4), 1000-grain weight (23.64), yield (2.85 kg) and harvest index (30.275). The treatment T2 followed the T3 in the above mentioned parameters which were statistically at par. PK-NK% were non-significant whereas to NK% are also behave similarly under different treatments. Tillering, panicle formation and seed setting are the critical stages contributing maximum to yield. The application of fertilizer in three split dose with a little more stress at panicle initiation stage is best technique to increase paddy yield.
