Echinacea, commonly known as coneflower, is a member of the Asteraceae family. The plant is one of the most commonly medicinal plant, is herbaceous perennials with large daisy-like flowers. The roots and aerial parts of Echinacea purpurea is used commercially as herbal plant for enhancing the immune system and treating common cold. This research was conducted to determine the effects of different nitrogen forms on some agronomical characteristics on purple coneflower. In terms of agronomical parameters, plant height, number of branches, stem diameter, number of head, fresh root weight, fresh flower weight, whole plant fresh weight, dry root weight, dry flower weight, whole plant dry weight per plant were examined. According to the results, the nitrogen forms had no statistically significant effects on yield parameters except fresh & dry root weight. Dry root, dry flower weight and dry whole plant weight were determined as 24.6-31.3 g/plant, 9.3-15.4 g/plant and 76.2-106.6 g/plant, respectively.
