The objective of this study was to determine the effect of phosphorus fertilizer rates, cultivar and location on drybean yield production at three different locations of North West province, South Africa. The experimental design was a 5 x 3 x 3 factorial experiment fitted into a randomized complete block design with 4 replications. The three drybean cultivars used were PAN 123, PAN 148 and PAN 9292. Three locations of the study were Taung, Ventersdorp and Mafikeng. The Five levels (0, 1, 2, 3 and 4) of phosphorus fertilizer were applied during planting and these differed according to each location. Drybean cultivar and location had significant effect (P < 0.005) on the number of pods per plant, 100- seed mass and grain yield. Drybean cultivar PAN 9292 is recommended for production due to its higher seed yield.
