This experiment has been conducted at the Experimental Field /Department of Horticulture; College of Agriculture of Abu- Graib- Baghdad – Iraq during 2009-2010-Season A field study has been carried out to investigate the effect of planting date and organic fertilizers on growth, yield and storability of Elephant Garlic. Planting date treatments are 20/10, 4/11and 19/11/2009. Spray with organic fertilizers (K- Humate) using three concentration (0, 1. 5 and 3 ml. L-1), in a randomized complete block design with three replicates, the experimental results can be summarized as follow :
The second planting date (effects significantly) increased plant height (41.12 cm), number of leaves (8.82 lefl. plant-1), leaf area (34.84 cm2) and number of cloves (4.27 cloves. head -1) and total yield (20.20 ton. h-1) . Plant height, number of leaves, leaf area number of cloves and total yield increased with increasing K- Humate application. Higher K- Humate rates improved 43.89 cm, 9.27 leaf plant-1, 35.97cm 2, 4.62 cloves. head-1 and 22.55 ton. ha-1. The interaction between planting date and organic fertilizers significantly has been increased in all parameters studied. The foliar sprays with k- Humate at the rat of k2 significantly reduces the percentage of weight- loss as compared with ko and the values were 29.49 % and 38.77% respectively while there no significant influences in the percentage of decay.The first planting date D1 significantly reduces the percentage of weight Loss to 30.18% as compared D3 and the percentage is 2.27% as compared with D2 , and the percentage, is 8.51%.

A field experiment has conducted at the Wassit governorate during 2009 and 2010 growing season to study the effect of planting dates (1,15 June and 1 july ) on the Behavior characteristics four Rice cultivars (Baghdad, Menathera, Furat and Anber-33
The experiment has been conducted as a factorial experiment with R.C.BD design with three replicates to determine the best cultivar and the best date to production .
Results have showed that the second planting date (15 of june ) is significantly higher than the other dates in flag leaf area ,number panicles , number of grain in a panicle , grain yield and less infertility ratio .
Menathera cultivar is significantly earlier of flowering 50% smallest mean for flag leaf area، The Second planting date(15 of june ) give the highest grain yield (4.388 and 4.388 ton/hec ) respectively.
Furat cultivar has given the smallest mean of infertility percentage .Baghdad cultivar is superior in plant high, number of panicles, number of grain in the panicle , 1000 grain Wight ,and the grain yield (4.003 ton / hec) . The interaction of second date with Baghdad cultivar gives the highest grain yield (5.200 and 5.030tan / hec) respectively.

A field experiment has been conducted at AL-Muthanaa Governorate, during 2009 , 2010 and 2011 growing seasons to study the effect of four planting dates (1, 10, 20 June and 1 Jules) 0n growth and yield of six rice genotypes (IR-60819, RP-2235, MESHKAB-1, MESHKAB-2, YASSMEN AND ANBAR-22).Factorial arrangement in R.C.B. Design is used with three replicates .
Result have showed a significant effect of planting date on flag leaf area, infertility, number of panicle per m2, number of grain per panicle, grain weight, and grain yield that arrive 5.01, 5.28 and 4.87 ton/ ha. The genotypes significant effect in all studied characteristics except infertility, The genotype of YASSMEN and MESHKAB-2 genotypes have high mean of grain yield 3.98 and 3.65 ton/ ha at 2009. MESHKAB-1 and YASSMEN genotypes have given high grain yield 3.98 and 3.73 ton/ ha at 2010. MESHKAB-1and IR-60819 genotypes gave high grain yield 3.76 and 3.42 ton/ ha at 2011for tow genotypes respectively.
The interaction has significant effect on studied characteristics especially in 2009 and 2010.
The combinations (ANBAR-22 x 10 June) have given high grain yield 5.57 ton/ ha. (YASSAMEN x 10 June) have high grain yield arrives 5.75 ton/ ha in 2010. In 2010 the combinations (YASSAMEN x 10 June) and (MESHKAB-1 x 10 June) have given high grain yield amounts to 5.47 ton/ ha. The low means of yield for genotypes were obtained with 1 jule sowing date.

A field experiment is conducted in west area of Heseipa, AlQaem, Anbar
province in winter season of 2009. The objective of the experiment is to know
the effect of planting methods (ridges, and lines), and planting data (15 Oct, 1st
Nov., and 15 Nov.) on some growth characters and yield components for
chickpea crop ( local variety) under field conditions . R. C. B. D. design are used
with three replications.
The results have shown that the ridges planting methods show a significant
values in growth characters compared with the number of pod/plant (18.07
pods), and grain yield (0.909 ton.ha-1) while the line planting method has given a
number of pods /plant (16.52 pods) and grain yield (0.766 ton.ha-1) planting data
(1st Nov.) has given a significant result in plant height, the number of
branch/plant, the number of pods/plant, the number of grain/pod compared with
the control .This treatment has given the highest yield (1.095 ton. ha-1), while
the 15 Nov. data has gaven a highest weight of 100 grain .There is no significant
difference between the two factors in the number of grain/pod and weight of 100
grain .
The interaction treatment between planting methods and planting date have
given significant results in growth characters and grain yield . The 1st Nov. date
and ridges treatment given the highest number of pods/plant , number of
grain/pod and grain yield , while the interaction of ( 15 Oct. ,and 15 Nov. )
planting dates with line method gave low means in weight of 100 grains and
other characters respectively.
