Abstract: 

This study was conducted to investigate planting date and seed rate on blond psyllium (Plantago ovate Forsk.) in dry land condition. This experiment was designed in a split plot arrangement using complete randomized block design with three replications in Maraveh-tapeh station in Golestan province. The treatments comprised two planting dates and three seed rates: 2, 4 and 6 Kg/ha. Planting date had no significant effect on spike length, number of spikes per plant and number of seed per spike but seed rates effect was significant p<0.05, p<0.01, p<0.01 respectively. Results indicated that seed rates had significant difference (p<0.05) on seed yield so that the highest yield obtained at the highest seed rate (6 Kg/ha) while planting date had no significant effect on seed yield.
