Two field experiments were conducted at Marsa Matrouh Agricultural Research Farm during summer seasons of 2013 and 2014 using drip irrigation system, to evaluate the effect of some fog water harvesting models (f.w.h.m) of, (Double mesh had 220 stitches/cm2 (model-1), Single layer mesh touching each other had 220 stitches/cm2 (model-2), Double mesh had 120 stitches/cm2 (model-3) and Single layer mesh touching each other had 120 stitches /cm2 model-4) under some farmyard manure rates (20,30,40 m3)/fad on groundnut productivity. Results indicated that, there were differences between studied factor, (f.w.h) model-1, was significant exposed its superiority on the total water amount harvested it during the two seasons led to give significant greatest values of pods, seeds yield/ Fadden, biological yield/fad., seed and harvest index, and water use efficiency. It is worthy to mention that, also led to enhance yield as compared by the other (f.w.h.m) during the two experimental seasons. Results revealed that, by increasing the amount of the added farmyard manure to improve the most values of the previous peanut traits significantly, during the two seasons. The interaction effect between f.w.h.m and farmyard manure rates showed significant effect, grow in peanut plants under the condition of f.w.h model-1 and fed by 30 or 40 m3 of that fertilizer gave best significant values for most studied peanut traits compared with other treatments.
