EFFECT OF SULPHUR LEVELS ON GROWTH AND YIELD OF ONION(ALLIUM CEPA L.)Shivani Nayak, V.K. Singh, K.C. Shukla, Rudrasen Singh and V.P. Singh
A field experiment was conducted during the rabi season of 2019-2020 at research farm, J.N.K.V.V., Collegeof Agriculture, Tikamgarh (Madhya Pradesh) to study the âEffect of different levels of sulphur on growthand yield of onion (Allium cepa L.)â. The treatments consisted of four levels of sulphur, viz.(S0- 0kg S/ha, S1-20 kg S/ha, S2- 40 kg S/ha and S3 - 60 kg S/ha) were laid out in Randomized Block Design with threereplications. Result showed significant influence on growth and yield attribute for different sulphur levels.Maximum plant height (62.62 cm), number of leaves per plant (10.25), leaf length (55.45 cm), leaf diameter(0.95cm), neck thickness (1.88 cm), bulb length (5.73 cm), polar diameter (5.99cm), equatorial diameter (6.11 cm),bulb weight (91.32 g) bulb yield (20.30 kg/plot) and bulb yield (282.00 q/ha) were recorded with applicationof sulphur 60 kg/ha. Which justify its superiority over rest of the treatment while minimum Growth andYield parameters were recorded 0kg S/ha.
