Abstract

A field study was conducted at the Agricultural Research Station, Yellamanchili during rabi season of 2015- 16 and 2016-17 to study the effect of various sources (gypsum and sulphur Bentonite) and levels (15, 30 and 45 kg S/ha) of sulphur on seed yield of sesame. Application of sulphur at 45 kg/ha through gypsum produced significantly higher seed yield (587 kg/ha) than at 15 kg S/ha through gypsum, sulphur bentonite and recommended NPKalone.
