Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted during kharif season 2013 at SKNAU, Jobner in loamy sand soil of Rajasthan to study the effect of weed control and sulphur fertilization on oil yield and yield of groundnut. Results indicated that of weed free treatment results significantly higher pod yield, kernel yield, haulms yield, seed index, total S uptake and oil yield that was closely accompanied by application of pendimethalin at 0.75 kg/ha. Result further indicated that application of sulphur @ 60 kg/ha significantly higher pod yield and haulms yield over control. Highest total S uptake and oil yield found with sulphur @ 60 Kg/ha.
