In this study the effect of bio and chemical fertilizer on Hyssop (Hyssopus officinalis L.) plant characteristics, biomass yield and essential oil was investigated during 2009 -2011. Treatments were Control, without using any fertilizes (F1), Chemical fertilizers application (F2), PSB: Phosphate solublizing Bacteria application (F3) and Nitroxin: Nitrogen fixation Bacteria (F4). The experimental design for both years was complete randomized block design with three replications. The results have shown a significant increase in some plant characteristics and properties of hyssop compare to control. Chemical fertilizers application with by 2824 kgha-1 had highest Biomass but the most essential oil yield were obtain in Chemical fertilizers application plus Nitroxin that were significantly increased yield of essential oil by 4.1 kg/ha and biomass yield by 2530 kg/ha.
