Abstract

A field experiment was conducted to study the performance of sesame (Sesamum indicum) +
groundnut (Arachis hypogaea) intercropping system under different levels of sulphur on the yield of component crops. The experiment was laid out in split plot design during Kharif season of 2005-06. The results indicated that the treatment sesame + groundnut in 3:1 ratio recorded significantly
higher yield, that was at par with sesame + groundnut in 1:2 ratio and sesame + groundnut in 1:3
ratio, whereas, the application of sulphur did not influence the yield attributes of both the crops
however, application of 30 kg S/ha registered higher grain yields of sesame, which was at par with
60 kg S/ha and significantly superior over the control
