The use of recent technologies for the increase of growth indexes and the plants yields is an important aspects and till now many research works for this has been done. One of these efforts is the usage of magnetic water and zeolite for the increase of yield plants. This research work is an study on the effects of magnetic water and zeolite that has been done on frame work of pore random design and by factorial method by 6 treatment and 6 iteration and totally in 36  plot for the Lapidium sativum L. plant in the research greenhouse of agriculture college of Birjand university in Iran. The treatment of water (in the form of common and magnetic water) was selected as the original treatment and zeolite treatment (on the form of calcic, potasic and without zeolite) selected as the secondary. The results showed that the effect of type of water on the dry weight roots, dry weight of stem, the ratio of stems to roots and roots to stems and leafs the 99 percent of confidence limits are meaningful. The variety of zeolite was a meaning full effects about 0.99 percentage of confidence on the growth percentage of plants, the length of leaf, the length leafs tail, the width of leaf, the wet weight of roots, the weight of leaves, the total dry weight of plant, the dry weight of leaves, the height of plant, the ratio of root to leaf and stem, the efficiency of water used in the confidence limits of 99 percents the length of  root and the dry weight of stem within confidence limits of 99 percent and on ration of stem to root in confident limit of 95 percents are meaningful. ..the mutual effects of type of water and zeolite on the length of leaf tail, the dry weight of root and stem, the ratio of stem to root and ratio of root to stem and leaf showed the meaningful effects.
