Studies on effect of nitrogen and sulphur on growth and yield parameters in linseed (Linum usitatissimum L.) varieties

AV Pawar, AM Misal, PR Thombre and MR Rathod
Plant nutrition is the route for increasing productivity of the crop. Production capability of any crop depends mainly on the essential nutrients supplied to the crop for their growth. This study aims to evaluate the effects of two major nutrients, nitrogen and sulphur on the growth and yield in linseed varieties. A field investigation was carried out during rabi season 2021-22 at AICRP, Safflower; VNMKV, Parbhani (M.S.). The experiment was laid out in a factorial randomized block design with eighteen treatment combinations consisting of two varieties viz. LSL-93 (V1) and NL-260 (V2), three levels of nitrogen viz. N1 @ 0 kg/ha, N2 @ 40 kg/ha and N3 @ 60 kg/ha and three levels of sulphur viz. S1 @ 0 kg/ha; S2 @ 25 kg/ha and S3 @ 50 kg/ha replicated twice. The results indicated that the growth and yield attributing characters of linseed viz. number of branches plant-1, number of capsules plant-1, number of seeds capsule-1, seed yield plant-1, test weight (g) were appreciably higher in the variety LSL-93 (V1) except for plant height which was higher in the other variety NL-260 (V2). The variety LSL-93 (V1) was also found to be significantly more effective in producing higher seed yield over the variety NL– 260 (V2). Among the different levels of nitrogen, application of N @ 60 kg/ha i.e (N3) was found to be most effective whereas, among the different sulphur levels, S @ 50 kg/ha i.e (S3) showed better results compared to other levels of sulphur in improving the growth and productivity of linseed. Among the treatment combinations, V1N3S3 (LSL-93:N60:S50) was found to be the most effective treatment compared to the rest of the treatment combinations.
