A study was conducted in El Minia Governorate, Egypt during 2002-03 and 2003-04 to investigate the effect of N at different rates (70, 90 and 110 kg/fed) and different sowing dates (15 September, 15 October and 15 November) on the performance of sugarbeet cv. Gloria. The highest returns, water use efficiency and productivity were obtained with the following treatments: sowing at 15 September and 15 October and application of 90 kg N/fed; and sowing at 15 November and application of 70 kg N/fed. These treatments increased the crop quality and yield.
