Geletu Bejiga. (22/4/2008). Effect of Sowing Date on the Yield of Lentil (Lens culinaris Medik. ). journal of agronomy and crop science, 167 (2), pp. 135-140.
A sowing date experiment was conducted over 6 years (1978–1983) to determine the optimum sowing date for lentil on vertisols in Debre Zeit area, Ethiopia. The results showed that sowing between the last week of June and the second week of July maximizes lentil yield. Later planting after mid-July, reduced both yield and time to maturity.
