ISLAMABAD, March 12, 2010 (Balochistan Times): Three-day Spring Flower Show 2010 would be held at the University of Arid Agriculture Rawalpindi (UAAR
) from Wednesday, March 17 to promote positive aspects of floriculture.
Rotational field experiments were conducted during two growing seasons (2002-2003 and 2003-2004) at two locations in Pothwar, northern Punjab Province: location 1, average annual rainfall 380 mm, the Research Farm of PMAS Arid Agriculture University, Rawalpindi (UAAR) and location 2, average annual rainfall 308 mm, the farmer's field at Chakwal district.
The mean bulk densities for the two experimental years at UAAR and Chakwal fields were 1.40, 1.50, 1.60, 1.65 and 1.55, 1.60, 1.68 and 1.70 Mg m-3 for the 0-03, 30-60, 60-90 and 90-120 cm depth, respectively.
3) indicated that during summer, 2002 at UAAR site, total water contents under mung and mash bean without P were 260 mm and these crops retained 29% more water in soil profile compared with non-legume sorghum.
After summer, 2003 at UAAR site, maximum water grater than300 mm was observed under mash bean without P and on average legumes retained 12% more water than non-legume sorghum.
WUE of grain yield of legumes: Water Use Efficiency of mash bean without P application was 113 and 37% greater than that of mung bean at UAAR site during summer, 2002 and 2003, respectively (Table II).
a Calculated as sowing soil H2O used-harvest soil H2O + in-crop rainfall (UAAR 2002, 689.3 mm; UAAR 2003, 840.6 mm; Chakwal 2002, 505.6 mm; Chakwal 2003, 400.8 mm)
a Calculated as sowing soil H2O used-harvest soil H2O + in-crop rainfall (UAAR 2002-2003, 383 mm; UAAR 2003-2004, 285.7 mm; Chakwal 2002-2003, 222.5 mm; Chakwal 2003-2004, 218.2 mm)
