Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during the kharif season of 2012 and 2013 at BHU, Varansi, Utter Pradesh to study the effect of sulphur on castor mungbean intercropping system and to find out suitable dose of sulphure. The soil of the experimental field was agricultural research farm Banaras Hindu University having Ph7.35, organic carbon (0.44), available nitrogen (205.1 kg/ha), phosphorus (25.2 /ha) and potash (216.20 kg/ha). The treatments consisted of four intercropping system [castor + mungbean (1:1), castor + mungbean (1:2), castor + mungbean (2: 2 paired row) and castor + mungbean (2:3 paired row)] and four levels of sulphure (0, 20, 40 and 60 kg S/ha) were taken in split plot design with three replication. Castor+ mungbean (1:1) gave significantly higher seed and straw yields of castor as compared to other treatment of intercropping of castor + mungbean. The number of pods per plant and number of seeds per pod of mungbean were significantly higher under castor + mungbean (1 : 1) intercropping system as compared to other treatments of intercropping of castor with mungbean i.e. 1 : 2, 2 : 2 PR and 2 : 3 PR row ratios. Castor + mungbean (1:1) intercropping system recorded significantly higher seed and straw yield of mungbean as compared to all other intercropping systems. Castor + mungbean (1:1) also recorded significantly higher castor equivalent yield (2893 q/ha) as compared to all other systems of intercropping. Significantly higher castor equivalent yield (2764 q/ha) was also recorded upto 60 kg S/ha over preceding levels.
