Effect of Foliar Spray (Al- Nahrain) Fertilizer and Planting Dates on Yield of Two Cultivars of Green Peas (Pisum sativum L.)
AbstractAn experiment was conducted at the experimental field of Horticulture Department, College of Agriculture, University of Baghdad, Abu-Ghraib, during the winter season of 2000-2001, to study the effect of Nahrain liquid fertilizer and planting dates on the yield of green peas (Pisum sativum L.). Two cultivars of peas (Local and Jof) were included in this study with two seeding dates (1/ 1 and 1/ 11/ 2000) and four sprays from fertilizer were used (zero, one, two, and three) foliar application, using afactorial within split plot design was with three replications. The results showed that local cultivar gave higher results than Jof cultivar in relation to the number of pods/ plant (30.36 and 26.67 pods/ plant), yield/ plant (0.243 and 0.198 kg), early yield (6.96 and 5.80 Ton/ h), total yield (10.80 and 8.80 Ton/ h) and pods weight (9.24 and 8.25 gm). Also the first seeding data (1 October) was superior in early and total yield (9.0 and 10.88 Ton/ h) for two seasons respectively compared to second seeding date (1 november) whic was gaves (3.76 and 8.72 Ton/ h). the response of all foliar application from Nahrain fertilizer was positive and significant ejectively with twice of spray. the double and third interaction the tween factors were significant in all characters study.
