Abstract

Different forms of sulphur (S) were studied in surface soil samples (0–15 cm) in rice-wheat growing areas of Haryana gnd their relationship with physico-chemical properties of the soils. The total S content was found to range from 42.0 mg to 338.0 mg/kg. The average heat soluble S and organic S content were relatively higher (36.2 and 56.3 mg/kg, respectively). Except water soluble S, all the forms of S were positively correlated with organic carbon. The organic carbon of the soil was found to have a greater impact on different S forms folowed by clay content and electrical conductivity.
