Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during Rabi, 2014 at college farm, college of agriculture, Rajendranagar, Hyderabad to realize the optimal dose of nitrogen and sulphur in safflower and to evaluate the effect of levels of nitrogen and sulphur on yield and quality parameters of safflower. The experiment was carried out with three nitrogen levels 0, 40 and 60 kg N ha-1 and three sulphur levels 0, 25 and 45 kg S ha-1 were laid out in randomized block design with factorial concept and replicated thrice. With respect to nitrogen levels, Viz. number of capitula plant-1 (26.7), number of seeds capitulum-1 (24.0), weight of capitulum plant-1 (37.5 g), 100 seed weight (4.4 g), oil content (29.3 %) oil yield (427 kg ha-1) and protein content (16.0 %) were recorded highest with 60 kg N ha-1 and it was significantly superior than 40 kg N ha-1 and 0 kg N ha-1. Among sulphur levels, significantly highest yield parameters viz. number of capitula plant-1 (25.7), number of seeds capitulum-1 (22.6), weight of capitulum (35.1 g plant-1), 100 seed weight (4.1 g), oil content (31.1 %) oil yield (448 kg ha-1) and protein content (15.0 %) were recorded with 45 kg S ha-1 over 25kg S ha-1 and 0 kg S ha-1.


Keywords: Yield parameters, Quality, Nitrogen levels, Sulphur levels.
