Abstract:

A field experiment was carried out at Zonal Agricultural and Horticultural Research Station, Hiriyur, Karnataka to during Kharif 2016-17 to assess the performance and suitability of different Castor hybrids (Ricinus communis L.) and to identify good castor hybrid in Central Dry Zone of Karnataka. The treatment comprised of 3 different hybrids and 3 sources of sulphur fertilizers (Single superphosphate, Gypsum and Elemental sulphur) in Randomized Block Design with 3 replications. The results showed that the castor hybrid DCH- 177 with the application of 20 kg sulphur per hectare through gypsum recorded significantly higher seed yield (1388.8 kg/ha) compared to YRCH-1 (1250.9 kg/ha) and HCH-6 (1200.2 kg/ha).


Keywords: Elemental sulphur, Single superphosphate, DCH-177, YRCH-1, HCH-6
