In order to evaluate the effects of priming on the performance of the Coriander, an experiment under field conditions, was conducted randomized block design with 4 replications and 10 levels of treatments in 2016 in Agriculture and Natural Resources Research and Education Center of West Azerbaijan. The purpose of this research was to improve and modify the uniformity in germination, growth rate and subsequently high performance and production of qualified product. In this research Coriander

Analysis of variance showed that the effect of priming on the agronomic performance measurements including fresh weight of plant, plant height, distance of the first branch from ground, number of umbels, number of compound leaves, leaf surface area, total dry weight and seed weight were significant. The variance analysis of field tests all traits studied had meaningful statistical difference in probability level of 1%.
