Abstract:

A field Experiment was conducted during kharif 2019 at Crop Research Farm, Department of Agronomy, SHUATS, Prayagraj (U.P.). The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design, comprising of two factors and 9 treatments, each replicated thrice viz., Sulphur (30 kg/ha & 50 kg/ha) and two application methods of Boron as soil application (1 kg/ha) and as foliar application (0.2% boron spray) at ray floret stage and the effect was observed on growth and yield of sunflower. Application of Sulphur and Boron significantly influenced the growth parameters, Yield attributing characters, Yield and Oil content over control. Addition of (50 kg/ha Sulphur + 1 kg/ha Boron recorded highest Plant height (145.69 cm), Number of leaves per plant (23.20) Maximum stem girth (3.06 cm) at 60 DAS, whereas, maximum values of Capitulum diameter (15.5 cm), Seed yield (1476.71 kg/ha), Oil content (45.70 %) were recorded with application of (50 kg/ha Sulphur + 0.2% spray Boron) in Sunflower.
