Abstract:

The field experiment was conducted to study the “Effect of potassium and sulphur on nutrient uptake, yield and quality of safflower in Vertisol at Collage of Agriculture Farm, Nagpur during rabi season of 2014-2015. Twelve treatment combinations were studies in FRBD with three replication, which comprises four levels of potassium (0, 10, 20 and 30 kg ha-1) and three levels of sulphur (10, 20 and 30 kg ha-1). The significant increase in seed and straw yield of safflower (15.02 and 36.06 q ha-1, respectively) were recorded due to application of potassium at 30 kg ha-1, whereas, significantly higher seed and straw yield of safflower (14.65 and 35.16 q ha-1, respectively) were recorded due to application of sulphur at 30 kg ha-1. The content and uptake of N, P, K and S improved in seed and straw of safflower significantly due to application of potassium up to 20 kg potassium ha-1 and sulphur up to 20 kg sulphur ha-1. The improvement in fertility status in soil for major nutrients and also quality of seed in safflower was influenced due to the application of potassium and sulphur levels.
