This study was conducted in the Tel Kaif area, north of Mosul in 2019-2020. First, five cultivars of bread wheat viz. Aba 99, Tammuz 2, Adnaniya, Abu Ghraib 3, Sham 6 were obtained from the Salah al-Din Seed Examination and Certification Department and then three seeding average (200, 250, 300 seeds/m2), were planted on lines with a length of 2.5m and a distance of 30cm using the Randomized Complete Block Design with three replicas to study changes on the plant growth traits. The results showed significant differences between all cultivars for all traits as well all the studied traits except for plant height. The interaction between cultivars and seeding rates showed significant differences for the traits (P<0.01). The spike length (cm), the number of spikes/m2, the biological yield (g/m2), and the harvest index % were significant (P<0.05) for the two trait of plant height (cm). The trait of grain yield also showed a positive and significant phenotypic correlation (P<0.01) with all the studied traits except for the trait of plant height.
