To study the effects of different fertilizing treatments on yield, yield component, seed quality characteristics French psyllium, a field experiment was conducted at Experiment Farm of College of Agronomy, Vali-E-Asr University of Rafsanjan.To study the effects of different fertilizing treatments on yield, yield components and seed quality parameters in French psyllium, a experimental field was conducted at Experiment FarmofVali-EAsr University of Rafsanjan.The experimental design was a randomized complete block design (RCBD) with four replications. In this research four fertilizing treatments including control (without fertilizer), chemical fertilizer, combined use of chemical fertilizer and Barvar Phosphate Biofertilizer, cattle manure and combined use of chemical fertilizer and cattle manure, were used. The experimental design was a randomized complete block design with four replications. In this research 13 fertilizing treatments including control (without fertilizer), different concentrations of kind of chemical fertilizer, combined use of chemical fertilizer and Barvar Phosphate Biofertilizer, cattlemanure and combined use of chemical fertilizer and cattle manure, were used.The results showed that fertilizing treatments had significant effect on all measured traits. The results showed that fertilizing treatments had significant effect on all measured traits. The highest seed yield and yield components and mucilage yields were obtained in combined use of chemical fertilizer and cattle manure treatment.Mucilage percentage and seed swelling factor were significantly higher in cattle manure treatment.Mucilage percentage and seed swelling factor were significantly higher in cattle manure treatment. It is also concluded that combined use of chemical fertilizer and cattle manure had significantly higher 1000 seed weight, spike per plant, seed per plant and drymatter compare to other treatments.
