Fertilization has a dominant influence in sugar beet production technology. Results of these investigations are achieved at stationary trial on Rimski Šančevi (Novi Sad, Serbia), which was conducted at 1982 on chernozem soil type, subtype on les, and carbonate variety, middle deep form. Organic and mineral fertilizers, with the increased nitrogen doses (from 50-200 kgNha -1 ) and its effect on the yield and quality of sugar beet were investigated in this trial. At variants where organic fertilizers were used, root yield was higher from 2.4 to 4.6 t/ha -1 , but sugar percentage was lower for 0.39%, or it was at the control level. Percentage of sugar utilization was also at the control level or even lower for 0.24 and 1.19%. Sugar beet yield at variants with organic fertilizers was higher for 160, 360 and 510 kg/ha -1 in relation to variants were only mineral fertilizers used.
