This study was carried out to determine the effects of wheat straw (WS), hazelnut husk (HH), humic acid (HA) and polyacrylamide (PAM) treatments on consistency limits (liquid limit (LL), plastic limit (PL), plasticity index (PI)) in two soils with sandy loam and clayey loam in texture. Soil samples used in the study were taken from two different areas of land (0-20 cm) from Samsun province's Bafra district. WS (0, 2%, 4%), HH (0, 2%, 4%), HA (0, 200 and 1000 ppm) and PAM (0, 30 and 90 ppm) were used in this study that was conducted in a split plots experimental design with three replications. According to the results; it was determined that the liquid limit, plastic limit and plasticity index values increased with the application of organic and synthetic conditioners in both soil texture, and the effect was realized as WS>HH>HA>PAM. It was observed that the highest dose application was the more effective in both soil texture, except for PAM.
