Abstract

The response of the apricot tree to combinations of fertilization with Qrop Complex and foliar spraying with seaweed extract (Alge-Zone) and their interactions in some chemical and yield traits are discussed. This includes the content of leaves Of chlorophyll and nutrients, Fruit weight (g), yield per tree kg. tree -1, percentage of total soluble solids (T.S.S). The randomized complete block design (R.C.B.D) was used with three replicates including the least significant difference (LSD) to compare the means at the 0.05 probability level. The results showed that the ground fertilizer with Qrop Complex gave an increase in the studied characteristics, and the foliar spraying with seaweed extract (Alge-Zone) had a positive effect on each of the leaves’ content of chlorophyll and nutrients (nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium, boron and iron). Fruit Weight (g), The yield of one tree kg. tree -1, the percentage of total soluble solids (T.S.S).
