	%X In order to evaluation the effects of natural, biological
and chemical fertilizers on grain yield and chickpea quality, field
experiments were carried out in 2007 and 2008 growing seasons. In
this research the effects of different organic, chemical and biological
fertilizers were investigated on grain yield and quality of chickpea.
Experimental units were arranged in split-split plots based on
randomized complete blocks with three replications. The highest
amounts of yield and yield components were obtained in G1√óN5
interaction. Significant increasing of N, P, K, Fe and Mg content in
leaves and grains emphasized on superiority of mentioned treatment
because each one of these nutrients has an approved role in
chlorophyll synthesis and photosynthesis ability of the crop. The
combined application of compost, farmyard manure and chemical
phosphorus (N5) had the best grain quality due to high protein, starch
and total sugar contents, low crude fiber and reduced cooking time.
