ABSTRACT In order to study the effect of different densities of planting on yield, yield components and morphological characters ofFennel, an experiment was carried out in Karaj College of agriculture at 2008. Experiment was conducted based oncompletely randomized block design with three replications and five plant densities. Five plants spaces were 10, 15, 20,25, and 30cm. Results indicated that the effect of plant density was not significant on the plant height, seed length andthousand seed weight. However, the effect of plant density on yield, number of umbel per plant and number of mainbranches was significant in 1% level. Maximum yield (2/431kg/plot), minimum number umbel per plant (67.26), andalso minimum number of main branches (3/8) were obtained with maximum plant density. While minimum yield(1/315kg/plot), maximum umbel per plant (166.86) and maximum number of main branches (7/3) were obtained withminimum plant density.

    ABSTRACT: Wider spacing produced taller fennel plants. The compound umbels per plant increased as the distance between plants increased. The yield of seed per plant was greater in wider spacing. On the other hand, the medium space (30 cm) produced higher seed and oil contant per acre. Early sown plants produced taller plants, with higher compound umbels. The oil percentage was not affected while higher yield of seed and oil were significantly obtained.
