Abstract: 

In order to evaluate the effects of enriched and non-enriched organic and chemical fertilizers on chemical properties of soil and some nutrient concentrations in pot marigold (Calendula officinalis L.), a pot experiment was conducted based on randomized complete block design with 11 treatments and 3 replications in 2010. Treatments were included control (without organic or chemical fertilizer), chemical fertilizer (CF) as the rate of 80 kg urea ha-1, 100 kg ha-1 super phosphate triple and 80 kg potassium sulfate ha-1, compost, pasteurized compost (bagas +perlit), sheep manure (10 ton ha-1 alone or plus 1/2 and 1/4 CF). Results showed that fertilizer treatments had significant effect on all treatments except leaf potassium. Accordingly, leaf and flower dry weight were maximum in 10 ton ha-1 pasteurized compost and farmyard manures plus 1/2 and 1/4 CF. The highest phosphorous concentration in flower and leaf (0.46 and 0.17 percent, respectively) was recorded when 10 ton ha-1 compost plus 1/4 CF was applied.
