Present research was conducted at Harran Plain conditions in 2009–2010 and 2010–2011 during two growing seasons. Different liquid humic acid levels were applied to CV Firat-87 red lentil variety which is grown commonly in the region. Experimental design was established as randomized block design technique with four replicates. Liquid humic acid levels were control, 2 L da-1, 4 L da-1, 6 L da-1, 8 L da-1 humic acid. Plant height, first number pod height, pod number, thousand kernel number and grain yield were evaluated in the study. According to two years average, the highest grain yield value was obtained from 8 L da-1 humic acid levels. Control plots gave the lowest plant height, pod height and number of pods.
