This study was carried out to investigate the physical and mechanical properties of mortar cement produced from Carrot Powder (CP) . To do this, 4 mortar cement specimens were formed by changing the weight of CP and cement. Increasing ratio of CP weight ratio affected the compressive strength, impact, hardness. As for the bending ,water absorption and fracture toughness decreased and were affected positively. It was concluded that CP might be used in mortar cement production to replace the cement in certain ratio to make them profitable and lessen their adverse effects on the environment.
