A field experiment was carried out during summer seasons of 2011-12, 2012-13 and 2013-14 at the Main Oilseeds Research Satiation, Junagadh Agriculture University, Junagadh to determine the optimum nutrient requirement for confectionery on medium clay soil under irrigated condition. The experiment consisted of nine treatments viz., two nitrogen levels, two potassium levels, two levels of sulphur and control. Experiment was laid out in randomized block design with four replications. N @ 50 kg/ha, K @ 50 kg/ha and S @ 40 kg/ha (T8) with  recommended dose of  phosphorus (50 kg/ha) recorded the higher pod yield of 2770 kg/ha and haulm yield of 4557 kg/ha with net realization (   85112/ha) and B:C ratio (3.34)  which was closely followed by N @ 50 kg/ha, K @ 25 kg/ha and S @ 40 kg/ha (T6).
