  In order to study the effect of planting depth and summer temperature control on growth and yield of saffron (Crocus sativus L.), an experiment was conducted at Agricultural Research Station in Zabol University (Iran) during 2004-2005 growing seasons. The experiment was laid out in a split plot within a Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with four replications. The main plots consisted of three planting depths (10, 15 and 20 cm) and three different methods for summer temperature control (check, mulching and irrigation) were arranged in subplots. The results revealed that by increasing the planting depth, corm propagation, contractile roots number, flowering time, leafing time and leaf number were decreased significantly, but leaf length and stigma were increased. Flowers number and corm weight were increased significantly by increasing planting depths from 10-15 cm, but both of them were decreased in 20 cm depth. In response to summer temperatures control treatments, flowering, leafing, leaf and stigma lengths were increased but corm propagation decreased significantly, due to decreasing temperature treatments. Leaves and contractile roots number were not affected by summer treatments. In response to temperature control and planting depth interaction, the most corm propagation and leaf number ware obtained at 10 cm planting depth and control treatments, also minimum corm propagation and leave number was obtained at 20 cm planting depth with mulching treatments. Minimum flower number was obtained at 10 cm planting depth with irrigation and its maximum number was obtained at 15 cm planting depth with mulching.

  In order to study the effect of planting depth and summer temperature control on tunic (corm fibers) production and leaf desiccating in end of growing season in Saffron (Crocus sativus L.) an experiment was conducted at Agricultural Research Station in Zabol University (Iran) during 2004-2005 growing seasons. The experiment was laid out in a split plot within a Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with four replications. The main plots consisted of three planting depths (10, 15 and 20 cm) and three different methods for summer temperature control (control, mulching and irrigation) were arranged in subplots. The results showed leaf desiccating, corm fibers (tunic) and number of daughter corms (corms propagated) significantly decreased by increasing planting depth (p<0.05). In response to summer temperatures control treatments, leaf desiccating and number of daughter corms was decreased significantly (p<0.05), also summer temperatures control treatments had not a significant effect on tunic weight, however tunic weight decreased by mulching. Leaf desiccating, corm propagation and tunic weight significantly affected by temperature control and planting depth interaction, maximum and minimum corm propagation and leaf desiccation time were obtained at 10 cm planting depth + control and 20 cm planting depth + mulching treatment, respectively. Maximum tunic weight was obtained at 10 cm planting depth and irrigation interaction. Tunic weight decreased by increasing planting depth and summer temperatures control treatments.

  This study was carried out to investigate the effect of treated wastewater on yield quantitative and qualitative properties in fresh forage of sorghum. The experiment was conducted at the University of Zabol in Iran during 2007 growing season by using a randomized complete block design and four replications. The treatments were managed for irrigation; with well water during entire period of growing season as control (T1); well water during entire period of growing season along with NPK (T2); wastewater during the first half of growing season (T3); wastewater during the second half of growing season (T4); wastewater and well water alternately (T5) and wastewater during entire period of growing season (T6). Results showed irrigation with wastewater lead to significant increase (p≤0.01) on total yield, leaf fresh and dry weight, stem fresh and dry weight, stem diameter and leaf number in plant based on Duncan test for comparing, maximum yield (13 ton ha-1) was obtained by irrigation with wastewater and well water alternately, also significant increase in forage qualitative indexes such as WSC, CP, ASH and significant decrease in NDF and ADF. Irrigation with wastewater and well water alternately has shown lower NDF, ADF and favorite CP in comparison with usage of wastewater during the whole growth period.
