Field experiments were conducted during 1968 and 1969 to test the effects of seeding rates and inter-row spacings yield, yield components, percentage of plump kernels and grain protein of a 2-row winter barley. The average increase in grain yields were 217 and 254 kg/ha for 108 and 162 kg/ha seeding rates. Increase in yield due to 22.9 and 30.5 cm inter-row spacing were 336 and 454 kg/ha. Number of spike per square metre and seed weight were also influenced by seeding rates in 1968. The inter-row spacings influenced all the yield components in both years. The percentage of plump kernels and grain protein were neither affected by seeding rates nor by inter-row spacings in either years.
