AbstractThe study was conducted during 2003 and 2004 season in Esghaki to find out the response of growth and yield soybean crop to planting dates. A Randomaized Complete Block Design was used in Afactorial Experiment with three replications. The treatments included three planting dates (Mide Jun, end Jun and Mid July) and three cultivars (Lee74, TN12, DT84). The results showed significant differences among planting dates in seed yield and number of pods in plant. The planting date in the end of Jun gave (2302.52, 2001.96) Kg/ ha. And (32.56, 31.51) pods/ plant in both year of study. The cultivar Lee74 produced higher seeds yield (2265.95, 2170.43) Kg/ ha. Caltivar DT84 gave higher plant hight (61.21, 78.95) cm. The interaction between Lee74 and the planting date in the end of July gave higher seeds yield.
