Abstract:
A field experiment was carried out to study the phosphorus-sulphur interaction at Mahatma Gandhi Gramodaya Vishwavidyalaya Chitrakoot, Satna (M.P.) on a sandy loam soil having medium status of available phosphorous and available sulphur. The treatment consisted of three levels of P (0, 50 and 60 kg P2 O5 ha-1) and four levels of S (0, 20, 30 and 40 kg ha-1) applied from diammonium phosphate (DAP) and sulphur, respectively. On the basis of the results emanated from present investigation, it could be concluded that growth parameter i.e. plant height, no. of leaves and no. of branches and yield attributes i.e. 1000 seed weight, no. of seed per capsule and no. of capsule per plant and productivity parameter i.e. seed yield (q ha-1) were increased with increase in level of P and S individually as well as in various combinations. Sesame variety GJT-5was grown with the recommended agronomic practices. The synergistic effect of phosphorus and sulphur was reported on no. of seed per capsule and no. of capsule per plant.
