SUSTAINABLE USES OF COMPOST AND WATER ON SOIL AND YIELD OF BEANS (PHASEOLUS VULGARIS L.)
This study evaluated two watering regimes (343.2 and 686.4 mm) and three levels of compost fertilizer (10, 30 and 5 t ha-1) on bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) in the Jordan Valley during (2007). Seasonal watering of either 343.2 or 686.4 mm was applied. Leaf area was significantly the largest under lower water regime with the highest compost level which was similar to those of higher water regime with highest two compost levels. Bean yields (16 t ha-1) under highest compost level (50 t ha-1) of lower water regime (343.2 mm) were the highest and significantly similar to those obtained under higher water regime (686.4 mm) of highest two compost levels (30 and 50 t ha-1) which yielded 16 and 17 t ha-1, respectively.
