Abstract

A pots experiment was conducted in the winter season (2014 - 2015) in a house garden in Al-Diwaniya city/ Al-Qadisiyah province to determine the physiological and chemical characteristics ofthe comparison between celery (Apium graveolens L.) and Parsley (Petroselinum crispum Mill.)plants.Plants were planted in a pots method at one date (12/01/2014) and 10 seeds per pot. All resultsunder study were subjected for statistical analysis in order to know the significant differences betweenthe traits by using F-test at 0.05.Results showed that all indicators germination of celery plant was morally superior to germinateparsley plant indicators, and the majority of physiological characteristics of the celery plant weremorally superior to those of the parsley plant traits except number of leaves of the plant that showedits superiority in parsley plant. Leaves of celery plant content of phosphorus, total carbohydrates,moisture content, ash, sodium and iron content excellence on parsley plant was coupled with therecent leaves in the superiority of nitrogen, potassium, total protein, fat, calcium, zinc and coppercontent.
