An experiment was carried out at Al-Raed Research Station, which is located on the Baghdad-Anbar road during the winter season, in order to study the effect of the type of solar panels and irrigation system on some performance indicators of irrigation systems and germination percentage of bean crop (Vicia Faba L). A randomized complete block design (RCBD) was used with three replications. The experiment consist of two factors. 1st factor was the solar panel type with two levels : monocrystalline and polycrystalline. Second factor was the irrigation system with two levels Drip and sprinkler irrigation system the following indicators were studied : solar panel efficiency (%), Irrigation system capacity (L / H), coefficient of homogeneity, germination percentage (%). The results shows that the monocrystalline achieved the best result by achieving the highest solar panel efficiency (24.21 %), the highest irrigation capacity (1782 L/H) and highest coefficient of homogeneity (94.54 %), The best solar panel efficiency was achieved with the drip irrigation which has on average (22.50 %), The drip irrigation had the highest coefficient of homogeneity (96.14 %) and the best germination percentage (97.20 %). The interaction between solar panel type and irrigation system shows that the monocrystalline with drip irrigation achieved the best panel efficiency (25.69 %) and highest average for homogeneity (96.72 %).
