A field experiment was designed in two successive seasons of 2017 and 2018 at the Experimental Farm, El-Khatara, Faculty of Agriculture, Zagazig University, Egypt. Plants were foliar sprayed with moringa leaves extract (MLE), garlic extract (GE) and their combination in addition to control treatment (plants were sprayed with tap water) to examine its effects on growth and yield of bean plants grown under sandy soil conditions. Results revealed that spraying plants with MLE, GE and their

The most favorable treatments reflected the highest values of the above-mentioned traits was foliar spray of bean plants with 4% MLE + 2% GE followed by 2% MLE + 4% GE.
