Canola's main selling point has been its low level of saturated fats, making it popular as a cooking oil and for use in processed food. To determine the effects of row spacing on yield components of three cultivars of winter canola and planting them in the test treatments and variety, factorial experiment in randomized complete block design in three replicates in which the planting distance in 3 levels: 30, 40 and 50 cm in 3 levels and three varieties, including new lines (crossed two varieties of H19, goliath), Zarfam and Pahnab-e-joybar(Local varieties). This experiment was carried out in 2010-11 crop season. The results showed that effect of variety Simple has significant on the number of branches in plants (P Key words: Canola, plant densities, yield and yield components, variety
