Two experiments were conducted to assess the effect of different salt
levels and irrigation periods on some reproductive characters and chemical
properties of seeds of two peas ( Pisum sativum L.) cultivars; Alderman (tall
cultivar) & Little marvel (short cultivar).The experiment included the use
of drainage water at three salt levels: 2 , 4 , and 6 dsm-1 in addition to Al-
Diwaniya river water (1.4 dsm-1) as a control treatment and three
irrigation periods; 2 , 4 , or 6 days and the combination of the two factors.
The measurements included: number of pods per plant, pod length, number
of seeds per pod, fresh & dry weight of pods. Also some chemical properties
of seeds such as percentage of carbohydrate, proteins and fibers were
The results showed that salt levels of 4 and 6 dsm-1 levels and the prolong
of irrigation periods decreased significantly pods number and length in the
two cultivars. Seeds number per pod also decreased significantly by using
the 4 and 6 dsm-1 salt levels in Alderman while in Little Marvel cultivar all
salt levels caused such a decrease. Irrigation periods had no effect. All salt
treatments caused a pronounced reduction in fresh and dry weight of pods.
The protein and carbohydrates percentage in seeds were decreased also due
to the effect of all salt treatments in both cultivars while fiber percentage
increased only in Alderman cultivar. Irrigation periods had no significant
effect on the percentage of fibers, but lengthen the periods caused
significant reduction in proteins and carbohydrates content. The
combination of salts at 6 dsm-1 and irrigation every six days wasthe most
negatively effective treatment in all parameters studied.

Afield study has been conducted at Al-Mishkhab rice research station(Najaf Governorate) in 2011 rice season to study the morphological relationship and distribution of eight rice varieties(Anber33, Jasmine, Furat1, Barnamaj4, Mishkhab1, Mishkhab2, Anber Abbasiya, Anber Al-baraka). Transplanting method has been used for planting in rows(30×20)cm distance between seedlings into plots (5×5)m size. The study has been designed using RCBD in three replications. The recommended fertilizer has been added. At rice cycle, the weeds are removed by hand for three time. The UPOV description of 27 morphological characters has been used. The results obtained show that seven out of the twenty seven studied characters could be distinguish between the eight varieties.
The rest of the characters, show less variability among the eight varieties. Genetic similarity based on morphological characters showed that genetic similarity degree ranged from (0.81 to o.98). The genetic similarity between Anber abasiya, Barnamaj4, Mishkhab2, and Furat1 varieties were (0.93). There is a variability between Anber33 and Jasmine with other varieties which appear similarity at the distant is(0.91), these varieties are different as separate branches than the other. The Mishkhab1 and Anber Al- baraka appear similarity as a separate group at distant (0.98).
