An optimal planning system for managing the range and maintaining it’s vegetation is highly influenced by the humidity and rainfall of the range. In this research, the reactions of the seidlitzia rosmarinous species to the fluctuation of precipitation and under ground water were studied at Chah-Afzal in Ardakan-Yazd. Regarding the amount of collecting data after five years, by applying Minitab software, using linear regression, an equation between the amount of the production and precipitation was obtained with a high correlation coefficient (r=0.93). The results showed that the variation of the plant production was due to the fluctuation of the annual precipitation. Moreover, result of another analysis was demonstrated a lack of agreement between the cover and density of the se.rosmarinous species with the amount of precipitation. In addition, the results state that the downward trend in the percentage of canopy cover and the density of the se.rosmarinous species in the region are highly influenced (r=0.94 and r=0.99 respectively) by the discharge of ground water table. Thus, the gradual decrease of this source in the coming years might bring out negative effects on the cover, density and finally on the condition of the range in Chah-Afzal. Also, Interaction between the effect of ground water table changes on the amount of forage production was not significant.
