Abstract

This study was carried out during two successive seasons (2020 and 2021) on the 5 -year- old of Keitt mango cultivar grown in a private orchard located at El-Farafrah Oasis in the New Valley Governorate, Egypt. The aim of this research was to study the effects of Four rates of sugar beet compost (control, 20%, 40% and 60%) of the trees actual nitrogen needs then we complete the actual tests of nitrogen for the tree from mineral fertilization, and Three concentration of Microorganisms (EM) (control, 75 and 100 ml/tree/year) on vegetative growth, yield and fruit quality of Keitt mango trees. The best results were recorded with Compost 40 % + 60 % mineral fertilizer level combined with 100 ml/tree microorganisms (EM) which improved vegetative growth parameters, yield and fruit quality of Keitt mango trees under heat stress conditions.
