Abstract

Field experiments were conducted with green gram as test crop at two locations in Thondamuthur
block of Coimbatore district to evaluate the residual effect of S application to maize on crop growth, nutrient uptake, yield and S use efficiency of subsequent green gram. The main crop was treated with 4 levels of S (0, 15, 30 and 45 kg ha-1) while the residual crop green gram received no S. In both locations Maximum increase in yield parameters and yield were observed in S 45 kg ha-1 however it was on par with S30 kg ha-1. S uptake recorded maximum at S30 kg ha-1 than S 45 kg ha-1 while a phenomenal increase in N,P, K uptake were recorded in both the locations. Application of 30 kg S ha-1 in the form of SSP was found to be optimum dose for maize and to get better residual effect on green gram.
