In order to investigate the effects of planting date and plant density on the yield and yield components of bean (Vicia faba L.) cultivars, the experiment was conducted at Safi Abad Agricultural and Natural Resources Research Center in 2017 and 2018. The experiment was performed as the split factorial in the randomized complete block design with three planting dates (Oct. 12, Nov. 1, Nov. 21) as the main plot and three density levels (10, 15 and 20 plants/m2) and two genotypes (Saraziri and line 62) as the subplots with three replications. The considered traits were the number of pods per plant, number of seeds per pod, 1000-seed weight, grain yield, biological yield and harvest index. The results of this study showed that the planting date, density and genotype, as well as their interactions had a significant effect at 1% and 5% probability level on the yield and yield components of bean.
