Agricultural Sciences (AS) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/as.2018.96049
Abstract: In the present experiment, the effect of various house hold wastes i.e. T1 (egg shell powder), T2 (wood ash), T3 (banana peel), T4 (used tea waste), T5 (egg shell tea) and T6 (control) used as organic fertilizers on growth and yield of two important vegetables i.e. potato and pea was investigated. Among all the treatments, the minimum average number of days to germination was observed in T3 in both potato and pea. The overall growth and development of potato and pea plants increased and the average plant height after 30, 60 and 90 days was greater in plants of treatment T1 (egg shell powder). In case of potato, the highest mean plant height (14.75 cm) was observed in treatment T1, followed by T3 and T4 (10.62 cm and 9.87 cm) respectively after 90 days of the emergence. T1 treatment increases the no. of leaves, no. of nodes, no. of branches and leaf area. Regarding tuber yield, the tubers were classified as large (>30 grams), medium (15 - 30 grams) and small (0.4 - 15 grams). T1 treatment produced greater average number of large size tubers (2.25) per plant, followed by T3 (1.25); however, the medium and small tubers followed comparable trends with differences among treatments. The average tuber yield (per potato plant) in treatment T1 was higher (113.78 g). In case of pea, T4 treatment (used tea waste) showed the highest mean plant height (82.25 cm). The treatment T1 (eggshell powder), T3 (banana peel) and T4 (used tea waste) showed positive effect on average pod yield (64.82 g, 66.67 g and 114.35 g) respectively. Number of grains per pod and pod size has been found higher in case of treatment T4. It has been concluded that among the different organic treatments, eggshell powder, banana peel and used tea waste were found best as organic fertilizer source for the two vegetables i.e. potato and pea.

Abstract: Management provides formal coordination in an organization for achieving pre-determined goals. The educational manager particulary performs his duties by using different planning and management techniques. These techniques are equally important for the manager of other sectors. The present study was focused on the impact of managerial skills learnt through MA EPM programme on the performance of the heads. Following were the objectives of the study .to assess the contribution of the programme towards the learning of the heads of educational institutions. To identify the managerial skills and competencies of Educational Managers and heads trained through EPPSL Department of the Allama Iqbal Open University. (ii) To evaluate the effectiveness of the programme and its impact on the skills of the MA EPM graduates. (iii) To analyze the performance of EPM graduates working as heads in their respective institutions.A questionnaire for graduates was developed for those working as institutional heads in Rawalpindi and Islamabad. There were 58 educational institutionl heads who have their master degree in EPM .The data obtained was organized, tabulated, and analyzed by using descriptive statistics means of percentage method in numbers of tables in order to find out the impact of the skills of the MA EPM programme. The finding and conclusions of the data indicated that the impact of the skills on their performance. Majority of the heads were agreed that the programme was beneficial for them. It was recommended on the basis of the conclusions that the selection of the resource person should be on merit; quality of books might be improved; and there should be a separate course for educational budgeting. It was also recommended that this programme should be compulsory for the institutional heads. There might be upgradation of the course.

Lal Hussain Akhtar,Abdullah,Sabir Zameer Siddiqi,Manzoor Hussain
Asian Journal of Plant Sciences , 2003,
Abstract: Studies were e conducted on forty one chickpea genotypes from Spain, India, Syria and Egypt to evaluate their performance under local conditions, their subsequent use in breeding programme and to establish a selection criterion for varietal improvement in chickpea. The genotype FLIP 97-149C exhibited high physiological efficiency with maximum harvest index of 41.5% followed by FLIP 97-28C (39.1%). Maximum economic yield was found to be 165g for FLIP 97-149C followed by Sel 93TH24483 (139g). Biological yield was maximum for the genotype FLIP 97-95 C (950g) followed by FLIP 93-260C, FLIP 96-90C, FLIP 97-116C AND Sel 93TH24483 (500g each). Biological yield and harvest index showed negative correlation (r2=-0.025) while economic yield and harvest index were positively correlated (r2 = +0.698) and economic yield (r2 = +0.598) and harvest index (r2 = +0.398). The results suggested that the yield of chickpea could be improved by improving the harvest index.

Virology Journal , 2008, DOI: 10.1186/1743-422x-5-53
Abstract: Each month from April 2006 to April 2007 we collected mouth-swabs from apparently healthy buffaloes and cattle, applying a convenient sampling based on a two-stage random sampling scheme, in conjunction with participatory information from each selected farm. Furthermore, we also collected epithelium samples from animals with clinical disease, as well as mouth-swabs samples from those farms. In addition, we analysed a total of 180 serum samples randomly collecting 30 samples each month at the local slaughterhouse, from October 2006 to March 2007.Samples have been screened for FMDV by real-time RT-PCR and the partial or full 1D coding region of selected isolates has been sequenced. Serum samples have been analysed by applying serotype-specific antibody ELISA and non-structural proteins (NSP) antibody ELISA.FMDV infection prevalence at aggregate level shows an endemic occurrence of FMDV in the colony, with peaks in August 2006, December 2006 and February 2007 to March 2007. A significant association of prevalence peaks to the rainy seasons, which includes the coldest time of the year and the muslimic Eid-festival, has been demonstrated.Participatory information indicated that 88% of all questioned farmers vaccinate their animals.Analysis of the serum samples showed high levels of antibodies for serotypes O, A, Asia 1 and C. The median endpoint-titre for all tested serotypes, except serotype C, in VNT titration is at a serum dilution of equal or above 1/100.All 180 serum samples collected have been tested for antibodies against the non-structural proteins and all but four have been found positive.Out of the 106 swab-samples from apparently healthy and affected animals positive in real-time RT-PCR, we sequenced the partial or full 1D coding region from 58 samples. In addition we sequenced the full 1D coding region of 17 epithelium samples from animals with clinical signs of FMD. From all sequenced samples, swabs and epithelium, 19 belong to the regional PanAsia II lineag

Journal of Engineering and Applied Sciences , 2008,
Abstract: From many decades reverse engineering (RE) has been used to make duplicate parts and part drawing prints in military and defence sectors. Scientific literature presents many different approaches for implementation of reverse engineering. Most of the studies are based on the analysis of point clouds acquired through coordinate measuring devices, such as, Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMMs), Optical Scanners or Interferometric Systems. In recent years, the development of computer technology resulted in the integration of design and manufacturing systems and automated inspection/gauging systems in manufacturing engineering applications. Geometrical information of a product is obtained directly from a physical shape by a digitizing device, from this complete 5-axis tool-path is obtained. Duplicating the part is done with the help of CMM and CAD/CAM software like Mastercam, ProEngineer etc. CMM is used to digitize the mechanical object. Taking coordinates (scan data) of the various points on the surface of the object and converting it into IGES file and using the same in the CAD/CAM software with required interfacing creates a surface or solid model of the object. Finally this solid model is used to generate CNC part program to manufacture the part on CNC Machining center.
Sodic Water Management with Gypsum Application for Sustainable Crop Production
Nazir Hussain,Manzoor Ahmad,M. Salim,A. Ali
Pakistan Journal of Biological Sciences , 2000,
Abstract: The experiment was conducted in the field on a normal soil. Brackish tube well water was used for irrigating wheat and rice crops without any amendment and with gypsum (equal to sodium contents of irrigation water; and two times its sodium contents). Wheat and rice crops were grown from Rabi 1995-96 to Rabi 1998-99. Grain and paddy yield along with Electrical Conductivity (EC), Sodium Adsorption Ratio (SAR) and pH of the soils were recorded. Use of brackish water without any amendment resulted in an increase in EC and SAR of the soil and caused a decrease in crop yield. Use of the same water in combination with two times its sodium contents resulted in normal yield of both the crops without any harmful effect on the soil. Gypsum equal to sodium contents of the irrigation water proved comparatively less effective.

Virology Journal , 2012, DOI: 10.1186/1743-422x-9-320
Abstract: Background Torque Teno Virus (TTV) was the first single stranded circular DNA virus to be discovered that infects humans. Although there have been numerous reports regarding the prevalence of TTV from other countries of South Asia, there is severe lack of information regarding its prevalence in Pakistan. Thus the present study compiles the first indigenous report to comprehensively illustrate the incidence of the virus in uninfected and hepatitis infected population from Pakistan. Another aim of the study was to present the sequence of full length TTV genome from a local isolate and compare it with the already reported genome sequences from other parts of the world. Methods TTV DNA was screened in the serum of 116, 100 and 40 HBV infected, HCV infected and uninfected individuals respectively. Nearly full length genome of TTV was cloned from a HBV patient. The genome sequence was subjected to in-silico analysis using CLC Workbench, ClustalW, ClustalX and TreeView. Statistical analysis was carried out in SPSS v17.0. Results Our results report that 89.7%, 90.0% and 92.5% of HBV, HCV patients and healthy control population were positive for TTV infection. TTV genome of 3603 bp was also cloned from a local isolate and given the identity of TPK01. The TTV genome sequence mentioned in this paper is submitted in the GenBank/EMBL/DDBJ under the accession number JN980171. Phylogenetic analysis of TPK01 revealed that the Pakistani isolate has sequence similarities with genotype 23 and 22 (Genogroup 2). Conclusion The results of the current study indicate that the high frequency of TTV viremia in Pakistan conforms to the reports from other areas of the world, wherever screening of TTV DNA was performed against 5′-UTR of the genome. The high sequence diversity among TTV genome sequences and the high frequency of prevalence makes it harder to study this virus in cellular systems.
