ABSTRACT. This study was conducted in order to evaluate the response of sesame seeds (Sesamum indicum L.) to organic or mineral fertilization. The effects of two fertilizers, which were calcium nitrate and humic acids were studied separately at germination and early seedlings growth. Different concentrations of humic acids (HA 0 : 0, HA 1 : 500, HA 2 : 1000 and HA 3 : 2000 mg L -1 ) or calcium nitrate (CaN 0 : 0, CaN 1 : 50, CaN 2 : 100 and CaN 3 : 200 mg L -1 ) were applied distinctly to the growth media.
