The study area is located in the northern city of Shiraz in Iran and in the factorial design in randomized complete block design has been done on Asgari grape varieties. The first factor was the type of plant (tree and shrub) and the second factors of cultivation (organic and chemical fertilizer) were performed in triplicate. A trait such as yield, cluster weight and berry weight was. According to the analysis of variance between all the different levels and types of cultivated plants had significantly And the interaction between the two factors apart from the rest of the berry weight traits were significant. Means comparison showed that the highest yield and cluster weight and berry as expected In terms of non-organically grown grapes plant results obtained, further investigation is Much less impact on the use of chemicals grape yield loss and other business attributes of a bush than a tree that had This can result in better economy towards a healthier product that is right after the establishment of fruit tree.
