Abstract
A field experiment was conducted for two consecutive seasons during January - May 2005 and December205-May 2006, in the Demonstration Farm of the Faculty of Agriculture, University of Khartoum. The objective of the experiment was to investigate the effects of two irrigation intervals on growth and yield of three indigenous pulse crops namely V. unguiculata (lubia hillo), V. unguiculata (lubia kordafani) and Lablab purureus (lubia afin). The irrigation intervals were seven and fourteen days. It was found that extended irrigation intervals reduced both vegetative and reproductive attributes of growth and final seed and dry fodder yield. There were also differences between the three crops in their responses to the longer irrigation intervals.
