A field experimental was conducted at Department of Soil-Science,Sam Higginbottom Institute of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences, Allahabad during kharif-2010 in randomized complete block design with twelve treatment combinations consisting three levels of nitrogen (0, 20 and 40 kg N ha-1) and four levels of Sulphur(0, 20, 40 and 60 kg S ha-1) replicated three times .Treatment combination N40 S60 (40kg N ha-1 +60 kg S ha-1) recorded significantly higher values for plant height (65.6cm), number of leaves plant-1 (32.4), fresh weight plant-1 (48.4 g) , dry weight plant-1 (16.5 g), number of nodules plant-1(44.5),number of pods plant-1(25.1), and grain yield ha-1(14.8 q).
