An experiment was conducted at Hydroponics laboratory_Department of field crops sciences, college of Agriculture – university of Basrah in 1/12/2013 to study theeffect of nutrition solution levels, rate of seeding and their interaction of growth, wet and dry weight of sprouting barley (Hordeum vulgare L.).
The experiment was carried out by using three types of nutrient solution: TE “trace element” + 1.67%K +2%P+ 5%N(L1),TE + 3.33%K + 4%P + 10% N (L2), and TE +5% K + 6%P + 15% N(L3). and three rates of sprouting seeds (125,150 and 175) gram/dish Which a coded by D1, D2 and D3) respectively. The dimentions of dish were (17*27) cm . The factorial experiment was designed by completely randomized design (C. R. D.) in four replicates. Results showed that the sprouting(D3)Product the highest values of studied traits,Also The level(3) of nutrient solution gave the same effect on these studied traits. Interaction between D3 and L3 gave the highest values of studied traits while the Interaction between D2 and L3 gave the highest plant height(23cm).
