Effect of Various Nitrogeneous Fertilizers on Yield, Quality and Leaf Nutrient Contents of Sugar Beet (Beta vulgaris L. 'Kawemaja')




The effects of various nitrogeneous fertilizers; ammonium sulphate (AS), ammonium nitrate (AN) and urea, on yield, quality and some nutrient contents of leaf blades and petioles of sugar beet were investigated in the field under Konya ecological conditions. A twenty kg N/da as AS, AN and urea increased root and refined sugar yields in the following order : ammonium nitrate (AN)> ammonium sulphate (AS)> urea. The effects of AS and urea, and AS and AN were found statistically similar. On the other hand, the root and refined sugar yield with nitrogeneous fertilizers were found higher than that of control. The differences between fertilizer treatments and control (except urea for root yield) were statistically significant (p
