This collection of plays written and introduced by actor-turned-writer Ayub Khan Din charts the development of a writer able to turn the tumultuous experience of life in modern Britain into satisfying, humane and often richly comic drama. Whether drawing on his own childhood, growing up in an Anglo-Pakistani family in Salford, or on E.R. Braithwaite's account of racial tensions in the East End in To Sir, With Love, he depicts the struggles of individuals to come to terms with their conflicting cultural legacies - - and he does so with unerring warmth and compassion. East is East (1996) is an irresistible comedy set in multiracial Salford in 1970, where the Khan children are buffeted this way and that by their Pakistani father's insistence on tradition, their English mother's laissez-faire and their own wish to be citizens of the modern world. The film adaptation that followed, with a screenplay by the author, became one of the most successful British films ever made. The version included here is the revised text first performed at the Trafalgar Studios in 2014. The short, elegiac play, Notes on Falling Leaves (2004), is an emotionally tender depiction of a young man as he loses his mother to dementia, 'overwhelming in its emotional impact' (Telegraph). In All the Way Home (2011), a quarrelsome group of siblings gathers at the family home under the shadow of impending loss. Amidst the cut and thrust of spiky Salford banter, long-harboured resentments rise to the surface and family bonds unravel and unwind. To Sir, With Love (2013), based on E.R. Braithwaite's autobiographical novel, is the uplifting story of a talented, idealistic young teacher discovering the reality of life as a black man in Britain after the Second World War as he struggles to find a way to connect with his students at a tough but progressive East End school.

Ephedra nebrodensis, a source of ephedrine used in orthodox medicine to treat bronchial asthma, high fever and as a heart stimulant. Some species are over exploited while many others are under exploited. The present study area represents unique and enormous diversity of medicinal and aromatic plants (MAP) within a relatively small geographic area due to variation in topography, altitude and climate. The MAP species have supported livelihood of many people in the area. They are being collected for export both to national and international markets. The high dependency of rural people on MAP for subsistence and unsustainable harvesting practices has resulted over exploitation of resources in different areas of the country. The study also revealed that the availability of important MAP species is decreasing and the number of rare and threatened species among the MAPs is increasing. Recommendations are, therefore, given in the spheres of training in identification, sustainable collection, value addition, trade monitoring and cooperative system of marketing.

Wheat production in Pakistan can be divided into three distinct periods: 1947-65, 1966-76 & 1976- todate. Wheat production increased by 647% from 1948 to 2006 whereas area increased by 210% in this period. Wheat worth of Rs. 220 b is produced year-1, where in one percent gain/loss in wheat production would be equal to Rs. 2.20 b. During the last 11 years (1999-2009), production varied from 18.223 to 23.40 m t with average yield of 2262 to 2585 Kg ha- 1. Wheat production is prime objective in agri. policies; contributes 13.8% to the value added products in agri.& 3.2% to the GDP.

Maize is the third important cereal crop in Pakistan after wheat and paddy. It is cultivated widely in the temperate, tropical and sub-tropical areas in the world. But, its function adversely affected by intense temperature and less humidity environments, gives rise to interfere in efficient pollination and resulted in failure in proper grain synthesis. In Pakistan the average production of maize is less than other maize growing countries of the world. The less production of maize is not because of cultivar but it was because of insufficient supply of water and nutrients, which are basic needs for getting greater production, and our soils and environmental conditions, are not supportive to provide adequate nutrients to crops especially micronutrients. The book in hand is an attempt to alleviate the menace of low production and have encompasses valuable information on various nutrient concentrations of pre and post harvest soil AB-DTPA extractable P and Zn, soil available SO4-S, leaf P concentration, plants density, maize grain yield of variety Jalal.

Insect damage in stored food grains may amount to 10%-40% in countries where modern storage technologies have not been introduced. The loss of the olive crop due to the damage inflicted mainly by Dacus oleae (Insecta, diptera), range from 10 to 70%. According to FAO the loss annually by insects and rodent pests is 10 to 25% of world harvested food. In Pakistan, fruit flies cause a loss of around Rs.7 million annually. While according to another report, in Pakistan about 2 - 6% food grain production is lost every year during storage by stored grain insect pests. Similarly the total post harvest loss of wheat is about 7.37% out of which 3.24% was due to stored grain insect pests. Therefore, the control of these flies and other insect pests is an important health concern. Flies and mosquitoes (Dipterans species) constitute two major groups of nuisance species in rural and urban environments and remains a major source of illness and death worldwide. Mosquitoes alone transmit disease to more than 700 million people annually. This can be valuable book for agriculturist, planners and allied stalk holders.

Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) is the staple food, occupies prime position in forming agricultural policies of Pakistan. Currently ha-1 yield is far below the actual potential of the existing varieties. Yield is the multiplicative end product of numerous factors including genotypes, management practices and fertility status of the soil. Soil organic matter is very important in terms of cycling plant nutrients and improving soil physical, chemical and biological properties. Pakistani soils contain less than 1 % Soil Organic Carbon contents on the average because of meager return of organic residues to the soil and climatic conditions which are conducive to rapid mineralization. Optimum levels of soil organic matter can be managed through fertility maintenance including use of inorganic fertilizers, organic manures and tillage methods. The book in hand provides first hand information to the agriculture students, researchers and planners. It should be in every agricultural library around the country.
