AbstractThe study was done in an unwarmed plastic house of Department of Horticulture and Garden Engineering, Agriculture college, Baghdad University the Alternative location of Al−Anbar University to study the effect of planting dates and Agricultural media and their interactions on some properties of growth and yield of strawberry cultivar festival for the season of 2016−2017. The study included 12 treatments of interactions of three planting dates (16/10/2016, 3/11/2016 and 21/11/2016) named D1,D2,D3 respectively, and four Agricultural media 100% sandy loam soil (control medium), sandy loam soil with peatmoss and composted sheep manure, sandy loam soil with peatmoss and composted calf manure, sandy loam soil with peatmoss and composted poultry manure in the ratios of (2:1:1) respectively These named M0, M1, M2 and M3 respectively. The study according to (R.C.B.D) with three replicates means were compared using L.S.D test on 5% probability. The results showed the superiority of early planting in the first planting day since it recorded the highest means for leafes number (30.10 leaf plant ˗1), leaf area (1342.92 cm2. plant ˗1), vegetative dry weight (13.51 g. plant ˗1), harvested fruits number (10.72 fruit Plant ˗1), fruit weight and total yield of plant reached of respectively (11.25 g fruit ˗1, 124.925 g plant˗1). From the other hand, planting in mixed organic media ledge significant increases in all growth and yield parameters comparing with control medium (M0).
