Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted on calcareous clayey soil at Junagadh (Gujarat) during rabi season, 2015-16 to study the effect of phosphorus and sulphur fertilization on yield and quality of Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). The experimental results revealed that application of 90 kg P2O5 ha-1 (P3) recorded maximum No. of tillers (89.9), No. of grain spike-1 (44.8), test weight (46.18 g), grain yield (4451 kg ha-1), straw yield (6886 kg ha-1) and protein content in grain (12.69 %) which was found at par with P2 (60 kg P2O5 ha-1). Application of 40 kg S ha-1 was found at par 20 kg S ha-1 and significantly increased No. of tillers (88.6), No. of grain spike-1 (43.1), test weight (45.78 g), grain yield (4354 kg ha-1), straw yield (6809 kg ha-1) and protein content in grain (12.08%). Combined application of 90 kg P2O5 ha-1 + 40 kg S ha-1 (P3S2) recorded significantly maximum number of grains spike-1 (47.33), test weight of (46.77 g) and grain yield (4937 kg ha-1) than the control (P0S0).
