Agronomic practices may need to be adjusted to maximize yield and quality of sugar beet. Thus agronomic package must be always modified. Nanotechnology is one of the new technologies that entered almost all sides of our lives and were used in agriculture production. Two field experiments will be carried out in the experimental farm of the Etsa region at El- Fayoum governorate, Egypt, during the two successive seasons 2015/16 and 2016/17 to investigate the response of yield and quality of sugar beet cv. Farida to foliar application of nano- microelements mixtures and or urea (Zn, Fe, B, Mn and N). Fourteen treatments were studied. The best results were found when sugar beet plants were treated with nano-microelements 200 mg / L+ urea 1% and ranked as the first favorable treatments for root length and diameter, dry matter per plant as root, top and sugar yields in both seasons, followed by the treatment of nano-microelements 160 mg / L+ urea1% for most traits studied. From the obtained results, it could be concluded that the application of nano-microelements 200 mg/L + urea 1% treatment for producing significantly higher yields with improved quality traits of sugar beet and saving of requirements for plants form micronutrient and nitrogen fertilizer if this fertilizer has been added in the form of nanoparticles.
