A simple experiment was conducted at 2012-2013 growth season to study the addition effect of chicken and cattle manure, granular humus alone or with foliar application of humic acid or seaweed extraction as well as control and chemical treatments on yield of broad bean. The results were summarized as follow: Most of treatments caused a significant increase on all parameters studied. Chicken manure + humic acid was superior to most of other transactions in pods number.plant-1, seeds number.pod-1 and seed yield, and it gave an increase percentage of 62.3%, 49.5% and 150% respectively, compared to control. Cattle manure + seaweed extraction caused higher proportion of protein in the seeds and it gave an increase percentage of 92.2% compared to control treatment.
