A field experiment is conducted during winter season 2015-2016 at Al-Bender zone dependent to farmer (3 km province center) to study effect of foliar of different treatment (Auxin, Boron, Proline and control) on growth and yield of four faba bean varieties(Aquadulce, Filo Semilles, Grano violetto and local). The experiment is Split-plot arrangement with Randomize Complete Block Design (R.C.B.D) with three replicates. Varieties have occupied the main plots while the treatment occupied the sub-plot.
The result of the experiment shows the treatment spry of Auxin get high mean of the height of plant (cm), No. of fertility branches, percentage contract(47%), total grain yield(3215 kg h-1) and content seed protein without significance of Boron spry treatment, also the harvest index was non-significant with treatment of with spraying of Boron and Proline. treatment of spry of proline is significant in branches vegetative and content seed proline.
The results show that the Aquadulec variety reaches the highest plant height , seed100 weight (178.2 gm) and total grain yield(3342 kg h-1). Variety Grano violetto reaches the highest leaf chlorophyll content, No. Pods per plant(33.06 Pods plant-1) No. vegetative branches, No. of seed per Pods(4.26 seed Pods-1) and seed proline content.
The combination of (Aquadulce-Auxin) reaches the highest means of plant height, fresh weight plant, While the combination (Aquadulce-Boron) give the highest No. of Pods (43.85 pod plant-1) and total grain yield(4084 kg h-1).-1).
