  A field experiment was carried out at Himalayan Agricultural Research Station (PARC),Kaghan during kharif season 2001 to study the effect of various sowing dates on maize. The crop was sown on 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd, 30th May, 6th and 13th June. Days to 50% silking, days to maturity, number of grains row-1,100 grain weight (gm) and grain yield (kg ha-1) was significantly affected by various sowing dates while the effect on number of rows ear-1 was non significant. Delay in sowing substantially reduced days to 50% silking, days to maturity, number of grains row-1, 100 grain weight (gm) and grain yield (kg ha-1).Maximum grain yield (2988.89 kg ha-1) was record in crops sown on 2nd May while minimum grain yield (780.44 kg ha-1) was observed in crops sown on 13th June. Early sowing produced highest yield as compared to delay sowing.

  The effect of gamma irradiation was studied on three wheat varieties. Various doses of gamma irradiation i.e. 10, 20, 30 and 35 Krad were applied to seed. High reduction in the mean values for survival percentage, days taken to heading and plant height were obtained in response to higher doses of gamma rays (30 and 35 Krad,) except for days taken to germination and number of ear bearing tillers. Higher doses of 30 and 35 Krad also created some abnormalities in plant types e.g a tiller having two ears attached with each other and sterile ears etc. All the three varieties namely Inqilab-91, Daman-98 and Raj responded differently to radiation doses for germination percentage, survival percentage, days taken to heading, plant height and number of tillers plant-1.

  Various doses of gamma irradiation i.e 10, 20, 30 and 35 krad were applied to the seeds of three wheat varieties namely Inqilab-91, Daman-98 and Raj. High reduction in the mean values for all the characters were obtained in response to higher doses of gamma rays (30 and 35 krad,). It was concluded from this study that the higher doses reduced mean values for majority of characters studied while lower dose of 10 krad had beneficial effect on most of the parameters. All the three varieties in this research project responded differently to radiation doses for various plant characteristics.

  Eleven wheat genotypes were evaluated during kharif season 2003 at Himalayan Agricultural Research Station Kaghan. The genotypes tested were Chakwal-86, Kohinoor-83, Pasban-90, Iqbal-2000, Chinab-2000, MH-97, Auqab-2000, Chakwal-97, Parwaz-94, Inqlab-91 and Punjab-96. Significant difference were found among genotypes for tillers/plant, number of grains/spike, thousand grain weight (g), days to maturity and grain yield (kg ha-1) where difference for spike length (cm) were found non significant. Maximum grain yield (1762 kg ha-1) was recorded by wheat genotype Chakwal-86 followed by wheat genotype Chakwal-97 (1678.99 kg ha-1) while minimum grain yield was noted in wheat genotype Kohinoor-83 (1069.900 kg ha-1).

  In developing countries like Pakistan where population is growing at faster rate, the gap in the production of food especially of animal origin is widening year after year. At present around 66% Pakistanis are deficient in protein. This food and nutrition dilemma demands a special attention to overcome the existing deficiencies in the food and nutritional needs of the population with particular reference to protein deficiency and its availability form. Out of various sources of protein meat, poultry meat seems to offer much better prospect in this respect. Therefore, this research article attempts to investigate the economic aspect of layer business. The study is based on the primary data. Problems hampering the expansion of this business have also been explored to suggest policy recommendation.

  The urban poor, residing in slum and squatter settlements place a high priority on gaining access to basic services for improving their quality of life. The study aimed to explore possibilities for providing green spaces to the people living in these areas. A survey was conducted to study potential role of green spaces in daily life of the people and ascribed health and social benefits. Sixty eight percent respondents reported health benefits, those perceived psychological benefits were 42% and social benefits entailed by 40%. Seventy eight percent pledged to participate in the development of green spaces in the form of cash, provision of labor and supervision.

  The study aims at improving social and physical environment in urban poverty line areas through planning and development of open spaces. This especially concentrated development according to public perception, demand and incorporating their resources in form of cash, physical work, providing land and supervising the developmental work for development according to their aspirations.

  Guara sown at 45 cm spaced double-row strips with two rows of intercropped Mungbean produced significantly more No. of pods, heavier grains and maximum grain yield. Mungbean sown between 45, 60 and 75 cm spaced double, triple and four row strips of Guara respectively, did not significantly effect No. of pods, thousand grain weight and grain yield per plant.

  Study on the extent of establishment of roadside plantation was carried out at Jhang Road Faisalabad during 2000. The study was aimed at finding out possible solutions to degraded conditions of Jhang Roadside plantation, through field survey (site survey) and social survey (evaluation of public perception). It was also intended to be helpful in future planning involving plantation in the cities in particular along roads. It was concluded that for sustainable roadside plantation, future planning should be carried out, taking into account, public perception and local conditions. At the same time management of the plantation should be improved by the employment of professionals as well.
