Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out during 2015-16 at Agricultural Research Institute, PJTSAU, Rajendranagar, Hyderabad, Telangana, India. Four levels of soil applied sulphur (0, 15, 30 and 45 kg S ha-1) in combination with four levels of foliar sprayed selenium concentration (0, 25, 50 and 100 ppm) was tried on sunflower to know their effect on seed yield, selenium content and antioxidant properties. The sunflower crop showed more than 25% in response to sulphur application. Sunflower seed yield increased with selenium application only up to 50 ppm spray and subsequently, the yield decreased. The selenium content in sunflower seed ranged from 9.12 to 20.12 mg kg-1. The antioxidant properties such as phenols and flavonoids significantly increased with the increased levels of soil applied sulphur and foliar sprayed selenium in sunflower crop.
