Abstract


A field experiment was conducted during summer season of 2010 at the Instructional Farm, Department of Agronomy, College of Agriculture, Junagadh Agricultural University, Junagadh to Effect of phosphorus and sulphur on growth and yield of summer soybean. Result of the experiment revealed that an application of phosphours @ 60 kg ha-1 recorded significantly higher plant height (49.56 cm), branch/plant (5.83), plant spread (36.78 cm), pods/plant (58.78), seed/pod (3.04), test weight (149.22 g), seed yield (2675 kg ha-1), and stover yield (2980 kg ha-1) over control. Similarly sulphur levels also recorded significant effect in increasing all these growth and yield attributes. The highest seed yield (2882 kg ha-1) stover (2940 kg ha-1) was obtained under the application @ 30kg ha-1 followed by application of sulphur 15 kg ha-1. The interaction effect between phosphorus and sulphur were observed significant in respects seed yield and stover yield Significantly highest seed yield (3104 kg ha-1) and stover yield (3408 kg ha-1) was observed with combined application of 75 kg P2O5 ha-1 + 30 kg S ha-1 (P3S2).
