Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted during the winter season of 2020-21 at Agronomy Experimental Farm, Oilseed research station, Latur to study the response of sunflower (Helianthus annus L.) to soil application of zinc sulphate and ferrous sulphate. The results revealed that the growth parameters of sunflower viz., plant height, number of functional leaves, dry matter production per plant were influenced significantly with soil application of 100% NPK + FYM @ 5 t ha-1 along with ZnSO4 and FeSO4 @ 20 kg ha-1 and over the other treatments. The yield and yield components of sunflower were also found to be higher with the soil application of 100% NPK + FYM @ 5 t ha-1 along with ZnSO4 and FeSO4 @ 20 kg ha-1 and recorded significantly higher mean head diameter per plant, seed yield (kg ha-1) and oil yield (kg ha-1). The highest GMR, NMR, and B: C ratio were observed with the soil application of 100% NPK + FYM @ 5 t ha-1along with ZnSO4 and FeSO4 @ 20 kg ha-1.
