Good timing of application is essential for the successful production of many crops and this is through on the application of controls and depends on knowing how to coordinate spraying with the stages of plant growth. Thus, this study conducted to evaluate the effects of Fish Amino Acid (FAA) at a different frequency of application under field condition, specifically to determine the best time of application of FAA on pechay, and its effects on the agronomic growth and yield performance of the test crop. The experiment was laid out in RCBD with five treatments replicated three times. The treatments evaluated were follows; No application (T1); Every 5 days (T2); Every 7 days (T3); Every 10 days (T4); and Every 14 days (T5). Effectiveness of such treatments was based on the Average Plant Height at Harvest, Average Number of Marketable Leaves per plant at harvest, Average Leaf Area of Plants per harvest (cm2), Average fresh weight of RS Plants at Harvest (kg), Weight of plants per sampling area (SA) in kg, and Computed yield per hectare. Result revealed that T2 obtained the highest mean on plant height, Longer leaf area, average fresh weight, and obtained the highest yield per hectare, compared to other treatments. A non-significant result was obtained on the marketable leaves that range from 6.07 to 7.01. Based on the study every after five days of application is recommended for pechay production until harvest.
