Abstract

Field experiments were carried out for three consecutive years ((2001 to 2004) at farmer’s field of Ranchi district to study the response of graded levels of sulphur on bulb yields and S uptake by onion and garlic crops applied through sulfer’ 95 and gypsum. An increase of 37.8 q ha-1 in bulb yield of onion and 18.8 q ha-1 bulb yield of garlic were obtained with S application up to 40 kg ha-1 over the recommended dose of fertilizers (NPK). Sulfer’ 95 was identified superior over gypsum to meet the S requirement of onion and garlic in S deficient soils of Ranchi. S use efficiency was found to be higher by these two crops with sulfer’ 95 than that of gypsum application
