Abstract: The experiment was conducted at Main Agricultural Research Station, UAS, Dharwad during rabi season of 2014-15 to study the effect of sulphur on productivity of garlic. Plant height (43.71 cm), no. of leaves per plant (7.25), bulb diameter (36.27 mm), no. of cloves/ bulb (21.75), 10 cloves weight (10.23 gm) and avg. bulb weight (11.75 gm) increased significantly with the application of 60 kg of S/ha (T5) and marketable yield (5.19 t/ha), total yield (5.79 t/ha) were also recorded numerically higher values and net returns in the same treatment. From this study it is observed that foliar application of 60 kg of S/ha improved crop growth and productivity in garlic.
