Cowpea is a legume that has one of the nutrient and economic value is high enough. High nutritional value an be obtained through proper cultivation. Cultivation factor is light intensity settings and proper harvesting. The purpose of this study is to assess the effect of shading and different ages on growth and crop production in cowpea, find treatment combinations that can produce optimal growth and production in cowpea, aware of any interaction between shading and harvest age on growth and yield of cowpea. The study design was conducted using completely randomized design factorial 2x3. The data obtained were analyzed using ANOVA, namely the F test at 95% significance level. When the F test results showed a significantly different effect then followed by a further test of Duncan. The results showed that administration of shading and different harvesting periods affect growth and yield of cowpea, shade treatment combination paranet 50% and 80 days of harvesting produce optimum growth and production, providing shade and accelerate harvesting cowpea plant growth but inhibit flowering time of plants.
