Abstract

Phosphorus and sulphur interacted significantly to enhance the yield of moongbean upto a combination of 60 mg P/kg + 40 mg S/kg. Differential application of phosphorus and sulphur, singly as well as in combination, were found to increase N, and K Contents in grain and straw of moongbean. PxS interaction had significant effect on Ca content only in straw, and it did not influence Mg content both in grain and straw. Balanced application of P and S is necessary for improving yield through better absorption and assimilation of other nutrients.
