Abstract

This study was aimed at evaluating the effect of different planting intervals (density) and germination on the performance and all morphological properties in Khuzestan conditions as factorial in the form of random blocks with three repetitions for one year. Results indicated that the effects of density and germination in addition to the interaction of both factors on all properties is significant at %1 level, which, in the recent case, the interaction of both factors on the number of tubers per plant and number of stem per plant was not significant. Maximum performance and plant height were resulted in the 25cm planting intervals and other properties were resulted in the 30cm planting intervals. In addition, all properties have gained their maximum quantity at the gemmiparous tuber planting condition in the shortest time. Tuber performance has its maximum positive and significant cooperation with plant height (0/929**)
