The study showed the influence of the Salicylic Acid (SA), which used to protect Burley Tobacco from Black Stem Disease, on the physical and chemical characters of the leaves according to 4 concentrations 0.25, 0.5, 1 and 2 millimoll by two used methods: irrigation and spraying. Results showed that the treatment by the concentration 0.5 millimoll had given increased the apparent density reached to 47.52% compared by healthy control 26.37%, and chloride percentage 0.61% and 0.72 % to healthy control which considered positive quality to burning character, and good contain of protein 14.1% and 11.43% to healthy control, and low contain of non protein nitrogen (NPN) 2.09%.
