A field trial was conducted to study mungbean crop performance and production potential under sulphur fertilization with recommended dose of NPK whereby, seventeen treatments were replicated thrice. Results showed that treatment T15:100% RD of NPK+S was found significantly superior to other treatments and recorded maximum grain yield. This was significantly superior to all treatments except treatment T16:125% RD of NPK+S and recorded maximum stover yield. Seed yield of mung bean exhibited significant variation under different combinations of nutrients and declined significantly with successive decreasing sulphur application. Nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium uptake by seed and stover increased significantly to the higher value (40.20 to 36.20 kg ha-1) with highest in treatment T15:100% RD of NPK+S and lowest in treatment T17: Control in both seed and stover. Nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium removal by seed and stover (total uptake) increased significantly with recommended dose of sulphur fertilization.
