Since the economical problems are the most important factors in degrading of Zagros forests in Iran, plantation of species with economical values in rural areas can be useful. In order to investigate the success of different genotypes of Almond (Prunus dulcis), this research was conducted in Kermanshah province. At first, 12 Almond genotypes which were resistant to cold and drought conditions were collected and then planted in a nursery. Six genotypes with high performance were selected for the trial. This research was conducted under Factorial Experimental design in the base of Complete Randomized Blocks design with two factors: six genotypes and three water catchments methods, including linear banquet, crescent banquet, and common method as control. Some variables including survival, pest resistance, stem base diameter and height were measured every year after the growing season. In survival point of view, results showed that there was a significant difference between water catchments methods and the planted genotypes. The linear banquets and crescent banquet had more vitality than those planted in common method (p<0.01). The stability analysis for water catchments methods at the research period showed that the seedlings planted in the crescent banquet had the most stability in survival and establishment.
