In the scope of this study a greenhouse experiment was built in order to determine the effects of humic acid, organic soil conditioner and organomineral fertilizer on wheat plant and certain soil properties. According to the greenhouse experiment results; the highest pH was obtained by the 15 kg da-1 DAP application by alone, increased use of mineral, organic and organomineral fertilizers have increased EC values compared to controls. In all of the applications included in the experiment, organic matter content of the soil have shown significant increase compared to controls and mineral fertilizer by alone. The highest available P amount was found in the application of organic soil conditioner together with DAP fertilizer; the highest N was determined in 10.10.10 organomineral fertilizer application. Plant heights have grown compared to controls in all applications. The highest wet weight of the wheat plant was found in the application of 10.10.10 organomineral fertilizer, and the dry weight was in 15.15.15. chemical fertilizer application. The highest N and P contents for wheat plant were found in 1 lt of humic acid applied soils. In conclusion, we have conducted content analysis for the organic material content found in significant amounts in the Afşin-Elbistan Lignite Pit and established the significance of organic soil conditioner, organomineral fertilizers, K-humate and humic acid in growing wheat.
