Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during 2013-14 rabi season, at the Instructional Farm, College of Agriculture, Junagadh Agricultural University, Junagadh to asses response of popcorn (Zea mays L. everta Sturt) to four levels each of potassium viz., 0, 30, 60 and 90 kg K2O ha-1 and sulphur viz., 0, 20, 40, 60 kg S ha-1 The results of different potassium and sulphur levels depicted that application of potassium @ 60 kg K2O ha-1 as well as sulphur @ 40 kg S ha-1 significantly increased the dry weight of leaves, shoot, root and total plant, at 30, 60 DAS and at harvest, cob girth, cob length, number of cobs per plant, number of grains per cob, grain rows per cob, 100 seed weight, seed weight per cob, dry weight of cob, seed yield & fodder yield.


Keywords: Rabi popcorn, Potassium levels, Sulphur levels, Dry matter yield, Yield and yield attributes.
