A field experiment was carried out in the Research and production station of National Research Centre at El- Nobaria during the season, 2008 to evaluate the vegetative growth yield quantity and quality of tomatoes as affected by different organic fertilizers and sulphur addition. Obtained results proved that tested treatments could be arranged in decreasing order as follows: chicken manure> farmyard manure> mineral NPK > agriculture compost. Chicken manure and farmyard manure had a synergistic effect on both fresh and dry weights of tomato shoots and roots, yield quantity and quality as well as mineral composition of tomato fruits compared to control (mineral NPK)). Sulphur element application enhanced tomato growth; yield quantity and quality along with the nutrients content in tomato fruits especially with organic manures. Agricultural compost gave the lowest values of tomato growth, yield parameters, chemical constituents and mineral nutritional contents of tomatoes.
