This study was conducted at a farm in the Northern area of Safwan Belong Al -- Zabair Basrah during winter season of 2001/2002. The aim was to study the effect of plant spacing (30 and 60 cm), plants number per hill (one plant, two plants, three plants) and their interactions on growth and yield of broad bean CV. Local. Result showed that plant spacing 60 cm gave a significant increase in leaf number/plant at ratio of 41.8 %, 164.6% respectively comparing with plant spacing 30 cm. While plant spacing 30cm gave a significant increase in yield per plant, early yield and total yield at ratio of 80.2%, 71.1% and 249% respectively comparing with plant spacing 60 cm. One plant per hill gave a significant increase in stems number per plant and leaf number per plants but two plants per hill gave a significant increase in yield per plant, early yield and total yield at ratio of (86.1%, 178.7%), (493.8%, 91.6%) and (259.7, 84.7%) respectively comparing with one plant per hill and three plants per hill. The interaction between plant spacing 60 cm and one plant per hill gave a significant increase in leaf number plant spacing 30 cm and two plants per yield per plant 244.0 gm, early yield 2.321 ton/donam and total yield 7.161 ton/donam.
