Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during pre-kharif 2017 at the Agricultural Farm, Palli Siksha Bhavana, Visva-Bharati, Sriniketan, Birbhum, West Bengal to study the effect of different levels of sulphur and boron on nutrient uptake and yield of summer sesame under red lateritic soil of West Bengal. The experiment was laid out in factorial randomized block design comprising of two factors (sulphur and boron) and eight treatment combinations replicated thrice. Sulphur was soil applied one month before sowing and foliar spray of boron was done at 45 days after sowing. The experimental findings revealed that the uptake of nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and sulphur was significantly higher with the application of sulphur @ 45 kg/ha and foliar application of 0.15 % of boron. The grain and stover yield were also statistically higher in the treatment sulphur @ 45 kg/ha among the sulphur treatments and with the foliar spray of 0.15 % boron. Thus, from the results of the present experiment it can be concluded that sulphur and boron play an important role in enhancing the yield as well as uptake of different nutrients.
