Abstract

 In order to investigate the effects of ZEOLITE in combination with chemical and organic fertilizers, applied in conventional and organic cropping systems, on SUNFLOWER quantitative and qualitative traits, an experiment was carried out in 2011. The experiment was conducted in the research farm of Tarbiat Modares University, Tehran, Iran, in the base of a randomized complete blocks design with eleven treatments and three replicates. The treatments were divided into different groups (chemical, organic and integrated) with and without ZEOLITE. The results indicated that different treatments had significant effect on most of the traits such as kernel yield, yield components, oil yield and nutrient content in the leaves (at the 1% level). The maximum kernel yield (2539 kg ha-1), as the most important trait, was found when 50% of required nitrogen was supplied from ZEOLITE COMPOSTED CATTLE MANURE and the rest was provided by chemical fertilizer (urea). In all nutrition methods, ZEOLITE application improved the oil yield trait. The highest oil yield (1165 kg ha-1) was obtained when 50% of required nitrogen was supplied from COMPOSTED CATTLE MANURE and the rest was provided by chemical fertilizer (urea) with9 tons per hectare of ZEOLITE. Overall, supplying required nitrogen from both chemical and organic sources along with ZEOLITE application can be considered as a great step towards reducing chemical input application to achieve SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE goals.
