Influence of varying Sulphur and zinc levels were studied on storage proteins and protein quality of Lentil (Lens culinaris). Application of 30 kg S/ha enhanced the soluble proteins, tryptophan, methionine, albumin and globulin. Similarly zinc application @ 30 kg/ha had positive impact on the soluble proteins (albumin and globulins) and amino acids (lysine and tryptophan). The positive interaction between variety, zinc and Sulphur was observed on the tryptophan and albumin content. Lentil variety K – 75 had the maximum tryptophan and albumin content on application of 30 kg zinc and Sulphur fertilizers per hectare.

Keywords: Albumin, Globulin, Storage proteins, Tryptophan
