Abstract

A field experiment was carried out during the Kharif season of 2000, with the object to study the effect of Different Levels and Sources of Sulphur on Growth, Yield and Grain Quality of Basmati rice (Oryza sativa L.) cv. Pusa Basmati-2. The maximum panicle length (29.69 cm), grain yield (45.86 q/ha), harvest index (35.58%) and protein content (13.17%) was obtained when sulphur was applied at the rate of 30 kg/ha. Among the different sources of sulphur single superphosphate gave the best results in yield (44.98 q/ha), no of tillers (8.77) and harvest index (33.46%).
