Plants of four months old were planted on the lines inside plots. A siplit- plot with RCBD design was used. Results could be summarized as follows:

The addition of Salicyalic acid significantly increased all vegetative characteristics and especially at 200 mg.L-1, which gave the highest rates of traits,the hight of plant  number of leaves, leaf area,and leaf weight The fertilization by Humic acid and NPK led to a significant increasing in all traits especially the combination of 2ml. L-1 Humic acid + 2gm.plant-1 NPK (N5).

The Interaction between Salicyalic acid and fertilizer (especially S2N5 treatment) gave significant increasing reached 74.87%، 33.59%،55.26 ،37.77%،75.97% and 73.92% for traits، the hight of plant ،number of leaves leaf fresh and dry weight and the weight of gel respectively.
