Abstract: 
Soils in arid regions are very poor in organic matter content. The application of municipal compost enhances crop yields by improving soil physical and chemical conditions. A field study was conducted in a complete randomized block design with four replicates. The factorial combination of 0, 25, 50 ton/ha municipal compost and 0, 60, 120 kg N/ha was used with sugarbeet-wheat rotation in permanent plots for two years. Compost analysis showed that the lead level was higher than the permissible level. The effect of compost treatment, especially in the second year, on the yields of sugarbeet and wheat was significant (P< 0.01). Due to high concentrations of N-NO__3 in irrigation water, the effect of nitrogen levels on the yields was not significant. However, the effect of municipal compost on the availability of P, K, Fe, Zn, Cu and Pb was statistically significant.
