|Abstract:||A field experiment was conducted at farm Department of Agronomy, College of Agriculture, Pune-5 during Kharif , 2000 with a view to study the effects of different levels and sources of sulphur on dry matter yield, uptake of nutrients at flowering stage and pod yield, quality, uptake of nutrients and fertility status of the soil after harvest of the crop. The dry matter yield and uptake of nutrients viz , nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium and sulphur were increased significantly with increasing levels of sulphur at flowering stage of the groundnut crop The dry pod yield, dry matter yield, oil and protein content were significantly enhanced due to the application of 90 kg sulphur ha-1 and which was superior to rest of all the levels of sulphur tested. The uptake of nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium And sulphur was also significantly increased at 90 kg S ha"1 With increasing the doses of sulphur, increased the availability of N, P, K Ca, Mg, Fe, Mn and Cu of the soil was enhanced. The higher values of available sulphur were observed due to the application of different oses of sulphur. The optimum, maximum economic dose of sulphur for pod, oil and protein yields were 73.88, 74.83 and 77.83 kg ha"1 , respectively. Amongst the sources of sulphur tasted, the gypsum gave the better response in respect of dry matter yield, dry pod yield as well as quality of the crop|
