The lack of information about the cultivation of coriander plants in Syria increased the importance of this study, which examined the effect of some sources of organic fertilization (cow muck, compost and poultry fertilizer) at a rate of 15 tons/ha of each fertilizer. This study was conducted in Tartous  at Banias region during 2018 season. A complete randomized block design arranged according to split split plot was used with three replicates. The results showed that there were significant differences between most of the studied traits. Compost manure exceeded cow muck and poultry manure in most traits (plant height, number of branches/plant, number of leaves and number of shoots/plants) )58.40 cm, 7.33, 5.70 and 17.00) respectively, while poultry fertilizer gave the highest values ​​(9.38 g/plant, 10.78 g) of weight of seeds/plant and weight of 1000 seeds, respectively.

Key words: Coriander, Organic fertilizer, Compost, Cattle, Poultry.
