Effect of Olive Mill By-products on Mineral Status, Growth and Productivity of Faba Bean
Abdullah M. Aqeel, Khalid M. Hameed and Muhammad Alaudatt

Abstract:
Greenhouse experiments and field trials were carried out during the 1999/2000 growing season at Jordan University of Science and Technology agricultural station to investigate the effects of different levels of olive mill by-products as soil treatments on the nutritional status and growth of faba bean (Vicia faba L.). Three levels of Jift and Zebar soil treatments, a chemical fertilizer and animal manure were assigned randomly in a randomized complete block design in triplicate. The Jift:soil 1:12 treatment and 4 L m-2 Zebar treatment increased grain yield and biological yield of the faba bean crop. Chemical analyses for inorganic nutrient elements in crop foliage revealed that both Jift and Zebar application resulted in increased nitrogen, potassium, zinc and iron concentrations. There was no significant difference in phosphorus concentration between treated and untreated plants. Olive mill by-products are recommended for use as a soil amendment to improve crop productivity and improve soil chemical and physical properties.
