Indian Journal of Agricultural Research. 56(4): 439-441. doi: 10.18805/IJARe.A-5771.
Background: Sulphur is an important component of plant amino acids, proteins, vitamins as well as enzyme structures which influence the productivity, quality of oil seed and its total oil content. The current study was undertaken to evaluate the role of sulphur and its proper fertilization for better growth, yield and quality of sesamum crop.
Methods: The field experiment was laid out in randomized block design (RBD) with three replications and ten treatments viz; T1 (control), T2 (10 kg gypsum ha-1), T3 (20 kg gypsum ha-1), T4 (30 kg gypsum ha-1), T5 (40 kg gypsum ha-1), T6 (control), T7 (10 kg elemental sulphur ha-1), T8 (20 kg elemental sulphur ha-1), T9 (30 kg elemental sulphur ha-1) and T10 (40 kg elemental sulphur ha-1).
Result: From all the treatments, T10 (40 kg elemental sulphur ha-1) recorded the highest plant height (cm), plant dry weight (g plant-1), crop growth rate (g m-2 day-1), number of capsule plant-1, length of capsule (cm), number of seed capsule-1, stover yield (kg ha-1), seed yield (kg ha-1) and harvest index (%).
