Abstract

The study aimed to investigate the effect of different levels of nitrogen (N) and sulphur (S) doses on growth, yield and malt quality of different barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) varieties grown on loamy sand soil. A field experiment was conducted during rabi 2015-16 and 2016-17 with three barley varieties (RD-2668, DWRUB-52 and RD-2849), three levels of N (60, 90 and 120 kg/ha) and three levels of S (0, 10 and 20 kg/ha). The experiment was laid down in a factorial randomized block design with three replications. Result indicated that the barley variety RD-2849 recorded the highest growth, yield and malt quality compared to other varieties. Among the nutrients management practices, application of 120 kg N/ha and 20 kg S/ha documented the maximum growth and yield characters as well malt quality in barley, irrespective of varieties. Cultivation of barley variety RD-2849 with the application of 120 kg N/ha and 20 kg S/ha explore the maximum varietal potential under loamy sand soils of Rajasthan.
