Abstract:
An experiment was conducted to study the effect of sulphur and zinc on yield, quality and of summer mungbean for two consecutive seasons i.e. 2008-09 and 2009-10. The experiment with four levels of sulphur (0, 20, 40 and 60 kg S ha<sup>-1</sup>) and four levels of zinc (0, 5, 7.5 and 10 kg Zn ha<sup>-1</sup>) was laid down in randomized block design with three replications. The summer mungbean variety “NDM-1” was taken as test crop during both the years. The application of sulphur at 40 kg S ha<sup>-1</sup> significantly increased the seed yield, stover yield, protein content in seed and uptake of N, P, K over control, 20 kg S ha<sup>-1</sup> and 60 kg S ha<sup>-1</sup>. However the sulphur uptake significantly increased by seed and stover of summer mungbean with 60 kg S ha<sup>-1</sup> and the zinc uptake was higher at 40 kg S ha<sup>-1</sup> which was at par with 60 kg S ha<sup>-1</sup>. The application of 10 kg Zn ha<sup>-1</sup> significantly increased the seed yield, stover yield, protein content in seed and uptake of N, P, K, S and Zn by seed and stover of summer mungbean<sup> </sup>over control followed by 5.0 kg Zn ha<sup>-1</sup> and 7.5 kg Zn ha<sup>-1</sup> during both the years, respectively.
