Abstract: The field experiment was conducted during Rabi season in 2016 at the Agricultural Research Farm of Department of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry, Rajiv Gandhi South Campus, Barakachha. The experiment is carried out in Factorial Randomized block design and replicated thrice. The treatments comprising three levels of sulphur (0, 20 kg ha-1 and 40 kg ha-1) in combination with zinc at three levels (0, 5 kg ha-1 and 10 kg ha-1). The present study result showed that the application of sulphur in combination with zinc in rapeseed significantly affected the growth, yield attributes and yield. Application of 40 kg S ha-1 + 10 kg Zn ha-1 was found to be best treatments regarding growth, yield attribute and yield of rapeseed. Thus, S nutrition with Zn in application of the rapeseed crop holds immense importance for obtaining better growth and productivity. However, for maximum seed yield/ha (40 Kg S/ha + 10 Kg Zn/ha) hold promise.
