In order to evaluate the effect of plant density and planting formation on some quantitative characteristics of wax been named Line cos16, we generated this research in the form of fragmented patches in totally random plots and in three stages, on the agricultural and natural resource research station of Boroujerd in agricultural year 2008-2009. In this research the main 3 service patches with row distances of 25, 50 and 75 cm are illustrated with the sign A1, A2 and A3 consequently, and the side 3service density patches with 30, 40 and 50 bushes are showed with the sighs B1, B2 and B3 consequently. After analyzing the soil, the field was plowed and in the day 20 April the operations of disking, lolering, paddling and cultivations were performed, subsequently. The amount of fertilizer was determined according to the soil analysis. In order to kill weeds, we used 2liters of terfelan ca kind of herbicidal per hectare. In the growth progress we used pesticides, too. After harvesting, some characteristics such as the number of marginal branches, the length of sheathes bean number in a sheath, one hundred beans weight, biologic performance and the bean function, were evaluated. The experiment result showed that the difference between bean functions in mid-row distances in a hectare, and various densities in 5% possibility scale was very significant. And the maximal production in field scale was obtained in the farthest mid-row distances and highest density (i.e. B3)
