Effect of row spacing and sowing date on yield and yield components of common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.)



Effect of row spacing and sowing date on yield and yield components of common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.)



African Journal of Microbiology Research 6(20): 4340-4343



Seed legumes are extremely important crop plants, which are widely cultivated in the Middle East. The study was conducted to determine the effect of different seeding times and seed rates on the growth, yield and quality of common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.). The experiment was laid out using RCBD under split plot arrangement with three replications. Three Row space as main plot R-1 (50), R-2 (40) and R-3 (30) and tow sowing dates D-1 (2 June) and D-2 (14 June) as sub plot. Obtained result from this research showed that grain yield, 100 seed weight, number of pods and seeds per plant, stem height and harvest index of bean were affected significantly by row space and sowing date treatments. Highest amount of all of these characters was measured in 50 cm row space between bean crops and lowest amount of them was recorded in 30 cm distance between beans. Among two sowing date maximum amount of grain yield, 100 seed weight, number of pods and seeds per plant was obtained in D-1 (sowing in 2 June).
