The utilization of Zeolite minerals has recognized as new technology of recent few years, which decreases negative effect of chemical and nitrogen fertilizer with causes chemical, biological, physical and hydrological recovery of soil. Additionally, Zeolite decreases soil and underground water pollution, as well as it's a good amendment of soil and water. The goal of the study is, the effect of natural zeolite on part of soil traits on chemical properties. In this research three treatments (Zeolite 20% plus 80% soil, Zeolite 10% plus 90% soil, and Soil (control) in three replications were used. Soil into pots treated and remains for ten days, then some parameters soil reaction (pH), Electric Conductivity (EC), organic matter (OM), lime, Cation Exchange Capacity (CEC) and exchangeable sodium) was measured. Result revealed different amount of zeolites effect on soil, pH, EC, OM, lime, CEC, exchangeable sodium, showed significant difference (P≥0.05) in each of them.
