Abstract:

An experiment was conducted at College Agronomy Farm, B. A. College of Agriculture, Anand Agricultural University, Anand (Gujarat) during summer season of the year 2016 to study the effect of irrigation, vermicompost and sulphur on sesamum (Sesamum indicum L.). There were four irrigation schedules (IW: CPE ratios 0.4, 0.6 and 0.8 and irrigation at critical growth stages flowering, branching, capsule formation and seed filling stages), two vermicompost levels (0 and 2 t ha-1) and two sulphur levels (0 and 20 kg ha-1). Higher value of growth characters, yield attributes, seed and straw yield were recorded under treatment I3 (0.8 IW: CPE ratio) which was at par with I2 (0.6 IW: CPE ratio). Application of 2 t vermicompost ha-1 and 20 kg sulphur ha-1 significantly increase growth characters, yield attributes, seed and straw yield. The interaction of 0.8 IW: CPE ratio in combination with 2 t vermicompost ha-1 resulted in better seed yield.
