AbstractField experiment was Conducted at Al-Rasheedia Research Station under moderate rainfall area (350-450 mm) which is located 5Km North of Mosul city, for the growing seasons 2008/2009 and 2009/2010 to study the effects of 5 seeding rates 40, 80, 120, 160, 200 Kg/ha under 4 Sowing dates. Which is extended from Mid Nov. 2011- 2nd Jan. 2012, 15 days intervals. The experiment was organized as Randomized Completely block design (RCBD) with three replications.The results showed superiority of seed yield of the first sowing date 15 Nov. which yielded 370 and 886 Kg/ha over the other dates. Number of pods/plant. Wt. 1000 Seeds and height of plant were followed a similar trend. In respect to, seeding rate of 120 Kg/ha gave highest values of seed yield 368 and 947 Kg/ha for the growing season 2008/2009 and 2009/2010 respectively. Whereas the lowest and the highest seeding rate 40 and 200 kg/ha gave 260 and 521 kg/ha for the two growing seasons in comparison with 252 and 686 Kg/ha for the growing season 2009/2010. There was a significant interaction in seed yield between sowing dates and seeding rates for the growing season 2009/2010.
