The two years experience was organized at the Didactic Facility of Banat’s University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine of Timişoara. The research objectives are determining the influence of sowing period, row distance and sowing density on the winter wheat yield, the variety used in the study being Alex, a variety representative for the Western Romania. The experimental plots were laid down after the subdivision of plots using three replications, under the climatic conditions of Timişoara. We monitored four sowing periods, three row distances and four sowing densities. In the experimental plots the technology applied was the classic one. The forecrop was corn. Wheat (Triticum aestivum ssp. vulgare L, var. erythrospermum) ensures approximately 35-45% of the world food necessity, specifically being used for producing bread and other flour products, as well as for domestic animal feeding. Thus, obtaining a high productivity is very important. The average data obtained after two years indicate that the first period of sowing, 1-15 October, registered the best results in both years by experience, followed by the variant sown during 15 - 30 October. Periods three and four resulted in significant yield losses. The row distance of the best results was the control, followed by sowing at a row distance of 25 cm with a drop by over 80 kg/ha. The variant sown by scattering registered in both years losses by approximately 1500 kg/ha. Sowing density resulted in constant increases in the yield, from the control variant with a density of 400 seeds/m2 , to 700 seeds/m2 increases were statistically significant.
