A greenhouse experiment was conducted in completely randomized design with two levels of aluminium (0 and 0.25 cmol kg-1), four levels of phosphorus (0, 13.4, 26.8 and 40.2 mg kg-1 P2O5) and three levels of sulphur (0, 13.6 and 26.8 mg kg-1 S) at SASRD, Nagaland University Medziphema in kharif season of 2017- 18 and 2018-19 to study the treatment effect on germination, yield, chemical composition and nutrient uptake of french bean and soil properties. It was observed that higher concentration of aluminium in growth medium significantly decreased seed, stover and protein yield, N, P, K, S and Ca contents and nutrient uptake by crop, while number of days to germination and aluminium content increased significantly. Application of 0.25 cmol kg-1 Al decreased the grain yield by 42.0 and 35.5%, stover yield by 25.4 and 22.5% and protein yield by 46.1 and 39.9% over control during Ist and IInd year, respectively. Phosphorus application significantly enhanced seed, stover and protein yield, nutrients content and nutrient uptake by crop and 26.8 mg kg-1 P2O5 gave significantly higher yield as well as nutrient content and uptake as compared to other levels. Application of 26.8 mg kg-1 P2O5 increased the seed yield by 22.1 and 26.5%, stover yield by 13.7 and 11.4% and protein yield by 26.6 and 33.8% during first and second year, respectively over control. Seed, stover and protein yield, N and S content and nutrients uptake by crop significantly influenced with sulphur application. Better results was obtained with 13.4 mg kg-1 S, which increased seed and protein yield by 11.4 and 13.2% during first year and 11.1 and 13.8% during second year, respectively over control. The pH, available N, P, K, S and exchangeable Ca of post crop harvest soil were decreased and exchangeable Al and total potential acidity were increased significantly with aluminium application. Available N was increased significantly with P and S application. Available P and S were enhanced significantly with application of phosphorus and sulphur, respectively. Neither P nor S application affected markedly the pH, organic carbon, potassium, exchangeable Ca, exchangeable Al and total potential acidity of post-harvest soil.
