AbstractThe research included study the effect of foliar spray of three concentrations (0, 30 and 60 mg.l-1) of Iron element as Iron cheleat (Fe – EDDHA) and three concentrations (0, 2, 4 and 6 cm3 ) of Acta Agro fertilizer on growth and some vegetative characteristics of pistacia vera L. seedlings which grown in black poly ethylene backs filled with lomy soil, each treatment was applied three times at 25/4, 10/5, 25/5 /2011. A complete randomized block design (R.C.B.D) with three replicates each consisted of 4 seedlings was used to carry out this research. Data collected at the end of September 2011 indicted that, foliar spray of Iron element at 60 mg,l-1 resulted in a significant increase in both parameters, seedlings high and percentage chlorophyll pigment as compared with control treatment. Mean while spray of Iron element at 30 mg.l-1. led to the most significant increase in seedlings high. At the same time, application of Acta Agro fertilizer at 6 cm3.l-1 gave the highest increase in total number of leaves per plant, single leaf area and leaf area per seedling. None of treatments had a significant effect on the fresh and dry weight and percentage of dry matter of leaves as compared with control.
