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.
