Abstract: Olive vegetation water is a by-product obtained after the olive processing and is rich of nutrients and minerals. The impact of varying rates of olive vegetation water (0, 5, 15, 20, 25 and 30 g kg 1) and Ca (0, 2.5 and 5.0%) doses on the soil fertility and the development of maize (cultivar Pioneer 31G98) were evaluated in present study. Statistically significant (at P ≤ 0.05) relationships were obtained in terms of the doses of olive vegetation water, olive vegetation water + lime and lime in the evaluation of the results of soil and plant analyses. After the application of olive vegetation water + lime doses increased the total salt and organic material of the tested soils. The highest positive impacts of both olive vegetation water and lime treatment on CaCO3 concentration were obtained at 15-20 g kg 1, and 2.5% lime dose. The increasing olive vegetation water rates significantly (P ≤ 0.05) increased the K uptake by the plants. In addition, application of 15 20 g kg 1 olive vegetation water caused positive effects on N, P, and K accumulation in maize.
