Abstract:

An experiment was conducted during rabi-2010-11, 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 at Faculty of Agriculture and Regional Research Station, wadura Sopore, SKUAST-Kashmir. The treatment consists two sources of sulphur (Gypsum and elemental sulphur) and four levels of sulphur (0,15,30,45 kg ha-1). The experiment was laid in a randomised block design with three replications. It was observed that application of sulphur as gypsum recorded maximum growth, yield and quality parameters besides enhancing quality and storage life of bulbs as compared to elemental sulphur. Further it was proved that application of sulphur @45 kg ha-1 resulted in significant improvement in most of growth, yield and quality parameters besides enhancing nutrient uptake by crop as well as improving storage life of onion bulbs.
