Abstract

A field experiment was conducted at Agricultural Research Station, Niphad during 2005–06 in split plot design to see the possibilities of increasing the protein content of wheat grain and wheat yield through sulphur application and split application of nitrogen. The results revealed that the wheat grain yield increased significantly due to application of nitrogen as 1/2 basal + 1/4 at tillering + 1/4 at milking stages and application of 50 kg ‘S’ through gypsum recorded significantly higher protein content.
