In order to know the response of maize (variety 5012) to organic fertilization under different irrigation periods. A split-plot arrangement R.C.B.D. design was used with three replications. Irrigation periods (4, 8 and 12 days) occupied the main plots, and the fertilization levels occupied the sub plots (F1= organic fertilizer-Pert Humus - 1000 kg.ha-1, F2= 200 kg N.ha-1 +100 kg P2O5.ha-1 and F3= without Fertilizer). The following characteristics were studied: plant height, Leaf area, number of grain. ear-1, 500 grain weight and plant yield. Results of the experiment showed the following: The F1 treatment surpassed the other F2 and F0 in all studied traits for the two seasons, the average of plant height (205.5 and 213 cm), Leaf area (6146 and 6121.3 cm2.plant-1), number of grain (593.6 and 597.3 grain.ear-1), 500 grain weight (153.4 and 148.9 gm) and plant yield (182.5 and 181.4 gm) for the two seasons respectively . While the 4 days irrigation surpassed the other in the same traits, with average (205.5 and 207.6 cm), (5769 and 5765 cm2.plant-1), (539.8 and 549.7 grain, ear-1) (147.4 and 150.8 gm) and (162.3 and 169.3 gm.plant-1) for the abovementioned traits for the two seasons respectively. As shown, a significant interaction between studies factors, where F1 treatment with 4 days irrigation outperformed in all studied traits. However, the F1 treatment with 8 days irrigation significantly outperformed of the F2 treatment with 4 days irrigation in plant yield by 181.8 and 189.2 gm for the two seasons respectively

A field experiment was conducted at the farm of Dept. of Field Crop Sciences, College of Agriculture, University of Baghdad, during 2008-2009 and 2009- 2010. That was to study performance of growth, yield and quality of bread wheat under sowing dates and irrigation intervals for IPA 99 variety. A randomized complete block design with three replicates with a split-plot arrangement was used. The sowing dates (November 20, December 5 and December 20) occupied the main plots, while irrigation intervals (2, 3, 4, and 5 weeks) occupied the sub plots. Results showed superiority of the sowing date November 20 in giving the highest averages of number of days from sowing to 100% anthesis (118.34 – 105.67 days), Chlorophyll Concentration in flag leaf (48.75 and 49.66), grain yield(5.03 and 4.82 t. ha-1), during the two seasons respectively. The treatment of 2 – weeks irrigation was superior by giving the highest averages of spike Length (11.63 and 11.38)cm, number of spikelets spike (20.13 and 19.98). Grain yield (5.20 and 4.98 t. ha-1), and minimum averages of protein 12.34% and 11.59% and moist gluten percentage 32. 50% and 31. 07 % during the two studying seasons respectively. There was a significant interaction between irrigation intervals and sowing dates. The combination of 2-weeks irrigation interval with sowing date November 20 gave the highest of number of days from sowing to 100% anthesis(119.67 – 107.33 days), Chlorophyll Concentration in flag leaf (50.38 and 51.30), grain yield(5.71 and 5.49 t. ha-1), during the two seasons respectively. The treatment of 5 – weeks irrigation intervals with sowing date December 20 gave less averages of spike Length, number of spikelets spike, grain yield and the maximum averages of protein and moist gluten percentage during the two studying seasons respectively. Can be conclude that delay of planting with increase irrigation intervals led to decreased yield and increase protein and moist gluten percentage. Therefore can be recommend to Sowing this cultivar during in 20 Nov. under 2-weeks irrigation interval to obtain higher growth and yield. To attain best quality advise to delaying sowing with increase irrigation intervals

Anbar Journal of Agricultural Sciences, Volume:12 Issue:2

Six inbred lines of maize (ART-B21,ART-B46,ART-B26,ART-B37,ART-B34 and DL.A3) were crossed with three testers DL.B3, DL.C3 and (DL.B3 x DL.C3)L3 using triple test cross system. Seeds of genotypes (lines, testers and crosses) weregrown in a randomized complete block design (RCBD) with three replicates, in autumn season 2012, Todetect of hybrid vigor, and some genetic parameters for traits plant height, ear height, ear length, number of rows per ear, 250-grain weight and grains yield per plant using triple test cross. Results of statistical analysis showed that there were found significant differences among genotypes (parents and crosses) for all studied traits. The cross (ART-B37 x DL.B3) was the superior for number of rows per ear (18.60) and grains yield per plant (181.05g.plant-1). The cross (ART-B46 x DL.B3) gave the highest hybrid vigor in grains yield per plant (69.71%). Analysis of variance for epistemic gene action test indicated non-significant lines mean square for all traits that indicated the absence of epistasis except 250- grain weight. Additive variances was significant for all traits, except grains yield per plant was non-significant, while dominance variances wasnon- significant for all traits, except number of rows per ear was significant. These results showed that the additive genetic variance was more important, and this reflects on the average degree of dominance values which were less than one in all traits, except grains yield per plant which was over dominance. The broad sense heritability was more than 90% for all traits, while the narrow sense heritability was high for all traits, except grains yield per plant was lower. The negative simple correlation coefficients showed that there is increasing of dominant genes for ear height, number of rows per ear, 250-grain weight and grains yield per plant, while the positive simple correlation coefficients for plant heightindicated the reverse. It concluded that hybrid vigor is a quantitative trait results from the polygenes action that may act with dominance or partial dominance.
