The effects of two plant spacing (20×20 cm) and (40×40 cm), Humic acid concentration (0, 1000 and 2000 ppm) and their interaction on growth, yield and principal components of ethanol extract of Curcuma longa under sand soil conditions were studied. The results showed that plan spacing (20×20cm) increased the growth and yield of Curcuma longa, while Humic acid had no effect on yield of Curcuma longa with the plant spacing (20×20 cm). With increased Humic acid concentration up to 2000 ppm in the case of plant spacing (40×40cm), the growth, yield and curcumin percentage were increased.
