This work reports the effect of potassium (K) fertilizer rates and water stress levels on the growth and seed yield of lupine (Lupinus termis, L.), cv. Giza1 and cv. Giza2 grown in pots under greenhouse conditions. Growth characters (plant height, fresh and dry weights and pods yield/plant) were significantly decreased with the rise in water stress levels in the two cultivars; while Lupinus termis cv.Giza2 was the higher tolerant to water stress treatments than Lupinus termis cv.Giza1. Application of K fertilizer rates counteracted the above adverse effects of water stress. The maximum growth characters and pods yield were obtained from plants irrigated with 80% available soil moisture (ASM) with K fertilizers rates (0.8 and 0.6 g K pot-1), respectively. Increasing the dosage of K fertilization significantly increased the tolerant of two cultivars to water stress. Maximum yield of seed was achieved with Giza2 cultivar while the minimum one was obtained with Giza1cultivar.
