The research aims to study the effect of weather and soil on the multiplication of pomegranate fruits in the city of Sabya, because it is grown there for a limited period and with very small, non-productive fruits. We began to suggest the following: research question: • Is there a correlation or relationship between weather factors and the multiplication of pomegranate fruits? • Is there a relationship between soil pH and the growth of pomegranate fruits? Hypothesis: - There is a relationship between weather factors and the multiplication of pomegranate fruits. - There is a relationship between soil pH and the growth of pomegranate fruits. Actions: Using the (Mixed Methods Approach) the Experimental Approach and the Interview: - A pomegranate seedling was taken and planted in al-mattan - Sabya, and we planted its seeds and followed the continuation of the growth of the seedlings and seeds. Experimentation was carried out on several seeds and in different types of soil, then the soil was described in terms of acidity, color and structure. And we took measurements at different times for the length of the tree and its leaves. - Conducting an interview with farmers, one of them from the city of Al-Baha, and the other with a farmer in the city of Sabya. Results: There is a relationship between weather factors and soil pH on the multiplication of pomegranate fruits. Choosing the right time to plant it, and the soil of Sabya is suitable for cultivation. When planting pomegranates, you need to fertilize, in addition to using methods that help increase its abundance and increase production. Conclusions: Weather and soil are among the factors affecting pomegranate cultivation, in addition to the appropriate time and methods used. Recommendations: 1-Uses that help the production of pomegranate in abundance, such as choosing the appropriate time and season for planting and using sticks instead of sowing. 2-Continuous fertilization of the soil and its treatment with advanced machines.
