Sugar Beet as a sources of human nourishment contains about 30% of sugar consumption in the word. On the other hand, problems encountered in providing human food as well as environmental pollution caused by unbridled human interference in the normal process of nature have created serious anxiety among scholars and concerned organizations. Therefore, efforts to increase production along with improving the quality of strategic products, provided that the environment is protected and not polluted, is the only fundamental solution to this global problem. In conservative agriculture, using fertilizer for increasing sugar beet production must be planned on the bases of economic beneficiary and environmental conservation. Considering the robust growth of sugar beet in saline soils and low-quality land, it is imperative to conduct studies in this respect. Unaware of the fact that compliance with the principles of operation and maintenance of fertilizing soil quality can be significantly raised the yield of sugar beet. Since Fasa region is one of the leading sugar beet production regions in Iran, it was chosen as the statistical population example. The purpose of this study is to provide guidelines for optimal use of fertilizers to sugar beet using MINITAB software and quality control charts. For this purpose, 80 samples were recorded from the fields of excavation and their OC, K, and P were tested. Results were quantified. The paper is concluded with some practical strategy suggestions.
