Abstract:

An field experiment was conducted at Instructional Farm, College of Agriculture, Junagadh Agricultural University, Junagadh during rabi season of 2014-15 to evaluate soil application of potassium and sulphur on nutrient content, uptake, quality and yield parameter of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) under south Saurashtra region of Gujarat. The experiment comprising of four levels of potassium viz., 0, 40, 60 and 80 kg K2O ha-1 and sulphur viz., 0, 20, 40, 60 kg S ha-1 and experiment was laid out in Factorial Randomized Block Design and replicated thrice. The results revealed that the content and uptake nutrient, yield of chickpea were significantly influenced by the various levels of potassium and sulphur. The application of potassium 60 and 80 kg K2O ha-1 and sulphur 40 and 60 kg S ha-1 significantly increased the content, uptake, quality and yield of chickpea.
