Abstract: 

Effect of two kind of mulching in which dark and transparent polyethylene were used and also the density of planting of autumnal cucumber culturing was studied in experiment that carried out in Lorestan agricultural research center in 2001. In this experiment the distant between the planting rows (1.5 and 2m) were used as the main plots and the three levels of mulching were used as the subplots. The distance of plants at the rows (20, 30 and 40cm) was used as 3 levels of sub-subplots and so the experiment was carried out as split-split plot with 4 replications. The results showed no significant differences between all the measured characteristics as the distance between the rows were decreased. But differences between all the measurements of planting characteristics affected by different mulching system were statistically significant at I% level except the effect of mulching on cucumber fruit weight that the differences were statistically significant at 5% level. Yield under transparent mulch 356% and under dark mulch 287% were increased as compared with that without mulching. Reduction of distance between the rows From 2 meter to 1.5 meter resulted no significant differences in bare ground treatment as the data obtained were statistically analysed.
