Abstract


نتائج مسابقة عام في عام 2015 م - جامعة الملك عبدالعزيز - كلية الزراعة - جامعة بيرزيت. كانت تجرب عبارة عن قطعة 2 * 2 × 3 مجزأة بتقسيم الانجليزيه ويشكل نظام المحاصيل (وحيد ومتداخل) المؤامرة الرئيسية ، ويقدر الذرة الشامية (ACR 89 DMESR-W و AK 94 DMESR-Y) الذرة) جزء المؤامرة الفرعية. النتائج تم تم تم تم قيم تم قيم تم قيم تم قيم تم قيم تم قيم تم قيم تم قيم تمتأثرت كل من الذرة العجيبة (نسبة 50 ٪ من نضج القرون) بشكل كبير بأصناف الذرة. كما تأثر كل أنواع نمو اللوبيا وحروفها (ما عدا 50 ٪ من نضج القرون) تنخفض هذه الأوقات مع 50٪ من الإزهار والأيام إلى 50 ٪ من نضخ القرون والتي تزداد مع تأخير وقت الغرس. أشكال العرض والعضلات ذات الصلة. كان فارايتي AK 94 DMESR-Y مختلفًا بشكل كبير عن مجموعة ACR 89 DMESR-W. تنخفض هذه الأوقات مع 50٪ من الإزهار والأيام إلى 50 ٪ من نضخ القرون والتي تزداد مع تأخير وقت الغرس.أشكال العرض والعضلات ذات الصلة. كان فارايتي AK 94 DMESR-Y مختلفًا بشكل كبير عن مجموعة ACR 89 DMESR-W. تنخفض هذه الأوقات مع 50٪ من الإزهار والأيام إلى 50 ٪ من نضخ القرون والتي تزداد مع تأخير وقت الغرس. أشكال العرض والعضلات ذات الصلة. كان فارايتي AK 94 DMESR-Y مختلفًا بشكل كبير عن مجموعة ACR 89 DMESR-W.

تأثرت كل خصائص النمو والعائد (بشكل قريب). LER (1.48 و 1.46) ؛ تم الحصول على LEC (0.52 و 0.49) والنسبة المئوية للأرض المحفوظة عند زراعة اللوبيا في نفس الوقت مع الذرة باستخدام الذرة الشامية ACR 89 DMESR-W التي قبل أعلى مستوى من التوافق بين النظام.
