ABSTRACT
Two field experiments were carried out during two successive seasons of 2009/2010 and 2010/2011 in the organic experimental farm of Agriculture research center, Faculty of Agriculture, Qena, South Valley University. The aim of this study to evaluate the effect of improving locally organic material (filter cake mud byproduct of sugar factory) which incorporated with biofertilizer on exportable organic onion bulbs production under Egyptian condition. Four different composted Filter mud cake rates supplemented with 125 kg rock phosphate and with or without addition of nitrogen fixers and phosphate dissolving bacteria. The important obtained results are as that using Filter cake mud compost for growing onion plant gained the vigor growth and yield especially when associated with the biofertilizer. The results show that application biofertilizers plus filter mud cake improved its power for supplying Onion plants with nutrients and produced good quality exportable organic onion through enhancement vegetative plant growth. The application of biofertilizer plus 10 ton/fed induced highly significant increase in most growth parameters and resulted in a significant increase in total and exportable bulb yield under newly cultivated land at south valley area.
