Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted during Rabi 2021 at Crop Research Farm, Department of Agronomy, SHUATS, Prayagraj (U.P). The soil of experimental plot was sandy loam in texture, nearly neutral in soil reaction (pH 7.1), low in organic carbon (0.36 %), available N (171.48 kg/ha), available P (15.2 kg/ha) and available K (232.5 kg/ha). The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with nine treatments each replicated thrice on the basis of one year experimentation. The treatments which are T1: Phosphorus 40 kg/ha + Sulphur 20 kg/ha, T2: Phosphorus 40 kg/ha + Sulphur 30 kg/ha, T3: Phosphorus 40 kg/ha + Sulphur 40 kg/ha, T4: Phosphorus 60 kg/ha + Sulphur 20 kg/ha, T5: Phosphorus 60 kg/ha + Sulphur 30 kg/ha, T6: Phosphorus 60 kg/ha + Sulphur 40 kg/ha, T7: Phosphorus 80 kg/ha + Sulphur 20 kg/ha, T8: Phosphorus 80 kg/ha + Sulphur 30 kg/ha, T9: Phosphorus 80 kg/ha + Sulphur 40 kg/ha are used. The results showed that application of Phosphorus 80 kg/ha + Sulphur 40 kg/ha was recorded significantly higher plant height (96.47 cm), No, of Tillers/hill (10.47), Plant dry weight (18.54 g/plant), Grains/spike (47.36), Test weight (38.59 g), Grain yield (6.25 t/ha), Straw yield (9.54 t/ha), and Harvest index (39.58 %), Higher gross returns (Rs.99,187.50/ha), net return (Rs.67,049.40/ha), and benefit cost ratio (2.08), was obtained in the treatment of Phosphorus 80 kg/ha + Sulphur 40 kg/ha as compared to other treatments.
