I haven't found any such book which serves this purpose according to our climate and resources... all are european or american... a few those which are written in urdu are mere translations from foreign books...

Izhar sb is right. Our Agricultural institutes have useful information based on research, farmers too, and then individuals who have gone through experience of growing again and again. From books, and internet, yes one do get valuable information but that is knowledge and wisdom would be to moulding that to your local environment. I subscribe to a lahore based kissan magazine and in that too few articles are just translations, and not research based on local conditions.
