The objective of this investigation was to study the overall impact of biofertilization (control, Microbin, Rhizobacterin, Phosphorin and four combinations) and the mineral nitrogen fertilizer levels (0, 40, 80 and 120 kg N/fed.*) on yield and quality of sugar beet. This investigation was conducted during 2013/2014 and 2014/2015 seasons at the experimental at Kalabsho (31°25’ E and 23°31’ N), El-Dakhlia Governorate, Northeast Delta. A split plot design with four replications was used. Results indicated that, using only biofertilizer gave the lowest values of root length, root diameter, root fresh weight and top fresh weight/g as well as root and sugar yields. While, using bio fertilizer with mixed Microbeen + Rhizobacterin led to increase in values of mentioned rails on the other direction. Addition Phosphorin to any kind of bio fertilizers (Microbeen or Rhizobacterin) did not give any significant increase in all traits under study. Mineral nitrogen fertilizer at high levels 80 or 120 kg N/fed. have a significant increase in most characters under study. Generally, it could be concluded that application the mixture of Microbeen + Rhizobacterin + Phosphorien as biofertilizers and adding 120 kg N/fed. as a mineral fertilization for maximizing sugar beet productivity under the environmental conditions.
