Abstract: Most Agricultural leftovers are secondary products which should be made useful by conversion to organic fertilizers, save energy sources, anti-pollution protection. Cotton wood sticks are among the most important leftovers, reaching in volume for Sharkia governorate to almost 121 thousands m.t./year, representing nearly 10.4% of the estimation of both economic and environmental (returns of cotton wood sticks) suggested variant uses, at both farm and regional levels, results should that farm returns may increase by nearly L.E. 296/feddan through conversion to organic matter for fertilization. Conversion to compressed wood (MDF) would realize revenue of about L.E. 6951/feddan and L.E. 4931/feddan for anti-fire untreated and treated wood, respectively. Moreover, production as source of energy, were the total value may reach L.E. 32.7 million/year, as equivalent to almost 43.6 thousands m.t. of petrol. According, the study recommends projects, especially in Northern rural areas of Egypt, through provision of low interest–rate loans and application of rural environment protection research recommendations, besides establishing a T.V. channel specialized in area of scientific research utilization development.
