The objective of this study is to investigate the influence of compost, nitrogen and micronutrient compounds fertilization on N-uptake, yield and yield components of wheat. A field experiment was carried out at Met-Dafer; Dekernes, Dakahliagovernerate, Egypt during the two successive winter seasons of 2008/2009 and 2009/2010. The experiment was conducted in a split split plot design; which consisted of three compost treatments (0, 5 and 10 ton fed -1 ) as main plots, nitrogen fertilization

The obtained results indicated that compost and micronutrient compounds fertilization with nitrogen fertilization increased N-uptake, yield and yield components of wheat and 10 ton fed -1 compost treatment was the superior and the micronutrient compounds treatments excelled control and the sitrin + kotingin treatment was top treatment. The combination of compost and micronutrients along with nitrogen application improved yield, yield components and N-uptake. The best treatment was sitrin + kotingin at 50 kg N fed -1 with adding compost10 ton fed -1 .
