  Find rice candidate variety PB-95 was evaluated for its quality traits in comparison with shaheen Basmati and Super Basmati. The newly evolved cultivar PB-95 possesses extra long slender shape grain with higher degree of grain elongation, intermediate amylase content and gelatinization temperature. The candidate variety leads Super Basmati Shaheen Basmati for Kernal length, Kernal width, Kernal thickness and cooked grain length and elongation ratio with strong aroma.

  An experiment involving 8 x 8 diallel crossing was conducted with rice to investigate the nature of gene action in governing the various traits studied and to explore the combining ability behavior of various genotypes used in the studies. Twelve agro-physiological characters were included in the study in F1 generation. High additive effects were recorded for plant height, panicle length, productive tillers/plant and primary branches/panicle. The non-additive effects were more pronounced for panicle fertility, days to maturity, shoot dry weight, paddy yield; Na, Ca and K contents of the shoot and K/Na ratio of the shoot. Out of the height parental lines/varieties studied Jhona-349 and Bas-385, respectively, proved to be the best general and specific combiners in the experiment under salinized soil conditions.

  Potassium deficiency symptoms were observed on rice 1999 in a number of fields throughout the Hafizabad district. Soil and plant samples from 98 rice fields showing K deficiency symptoms were collected. These soil and plant sample were analyzed for K contents. All the 98 plant samples had low K contents according to critical limits while soil samples were tested medium in ammonium acetate (CH -CO-O-NH ) extractable K. In the same year K was applied to 3 4 rice crop @ 62.5 Kg haG showing K deficiency symptoms at 11 sites. The paddy and straw yields improved from 4.17 1 to 36.20 % and 2.94 to 40.0 % over control by the application of K, respectively. Similarly K concentration also increased in both paddy and straw over control, by applying K, from 18.75 to 36.59 % and 6.70 to 14. 46 % respectively. Potassium uptake by paddy and straw yields and total K uptake also increased by applying K over control.

  Performance of newly evolved fine rice cultivars Shaheen Basmati and Bas. PB.95 were compared with the approved varieties; Bas.385 and Super Basmati in saline (EC=1,3,5&7 dSm-1) and saline sodic soils (EC 5.1--5.7 dSm-1, SAR 19--24 and pH 8.8-9.3) in pot and field experiments respectively. Shaheen Basmati & Bas PB-95 indicated significantly more plant height; 1000-grain weight and grain yield plant-1 in the pot experiment. Field study was conducted for three consecutive years. Shaheen Basmati & Bas PB--95 gave higher yields than the standard varieties Bas-385 and Super Bas. at five sites in Hafizabad (Pindi Bhattian and Karyala), Sheikhupura (Mirza Virkan and Shahkot) and Gujranwala (Eminabad) districts.
