Field experiment was conducted on sandy loam soil during rabi season 2007-08 at College of Agriculture, Gwalior to assess the response of cabbage cultivar to different levels of nitrogen and sulphur on growth, yield, and quality. nitrogen application 150 kg/ha and sulphur application 60 kg/ha produced significantly higher plants height, plant spread , stem diameter, width of head, higher weight of head per plant and yield of cabbage . Sulphur application 80 kg/ha contributed significantly more protein percentage over rest of the applications of sulphur. The maximum yield recorded under treatment combination 150 kg N/ha and 60 kg S/ha.
