Effect of different sources and levels of sulphur on nutrients uptake by mustard


Crop Research (Hisar) 5(1): 50-53
Effect of different sources and levels of sulphur on nutrients uptake by mustard
A field experiment for two consecutive years was conducted with four doses of sulphur (15, 30, 45 and 60 kg S/ha) and five sources of sulphur (ammonium sulphate, single superphosphate, gypsum, ammonium sulphate nitrate and elemental sulphur) to find out the optimum dose and source of sulphur fertilizer for mustard crop grown in alluvial soil. Ammonium sulphate was found to be the best in respect of recovery of nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and sulphur and also in respect of seed yield over single superphosphate, gypsum, ammonium sulphate nitrate and elemental sulphur. Application of sulphur significantly increased the uptake of N, P, K and sulphur. Optimum seed yield of mustard was found with the application of 60 kg S/ha. Ammonium sulphate proved to be the best among all the sources of sulphur fertilizer.
