A field experiment was conducted at Division of Vegetable Science SKUAST-Kashmir Shalimar during rabi 2009-2010 and 2010-2011 in randomized complete block design with sixteen treatment combinations consisting four levels of sulphur (0, 15, 30 and 45 kg S ha-1) and boron (0, 1, 2 and 3 kg B ha-1) replicated thrice . The study revealed that  combined application of   30  kg S and  2 kg B ha-1  recorded significantly higher values for number of seeded pods per plant (7.00), number of seeds per  pod (5.95), seed yield per plant (7.20 g), seed yield per ha (24.0 q), 100- seed weight (17.32 g) , Stover yield per ha (25.54 q) and maximum net returns of RS. 141243.0 with returns per Re invested of 2.43.
