Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted during rabi season in 2021-2022 at the Research farm, Department of Agronomy, AKS University, Satna (M.P.), to evaluate the effect of sulphur level and date of sowing on growth, yield and quality of linseed (Linum usitatissimum L.). The experiment was laid out in Factorial Randomized Block Design comprising four Sulphur levels viz. 00 kg S0 ha-1, 20 kg S1 ha-1, 30 kg S2 ha-1, 40 kg S3 ha-1 and three Date of sowing levels, 29th october D1, 5th November D2, 12th November D3 and treatments were replicated thrice. Results revealed that different levels of sulphur affected the growth parameters as well as yield attributes and yield of linseed. Incorporation of 40 kg S3 ha-1 recorded maximum plant height at 90 DAS (56.24 cm), number of branches per plant at 90 DAS (7.67), Number of capsules per plant (59.89), grain yield (17.85 q ha-1), straw yield (47.47 q ha-1), and oil content (43.39%), however, number of seeds per capsule (7.31) and harvest index (27.25%) were higher with incorporation of 30 kg S2 ha-1. Among different Date of sowing, number of branches per plant at 90 DAS (7.18), number of seeds per capsule (6.63), grain yield (16.10q ha-1), harvest index (26.33%), and oil content (42.63%) were observed when crop was sown on 29 October.
