A field experiment was conducted on calcareous clayey soil at Junagadh (Gujarat) during rabi season of 2016-17 to study the effect of phosphate and sulphur fertilization on growth and yield of Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). The experimental results revealed that application of 90 kg P2O5 ha-1 (P3) recorded significant maximum plant height (85.2 cm) at harvest, effective tillers (85.7) and grain yield (4451 kg ha-1 ) and straw yield (6886 kg ha-1), which was found at par with P2 (i.e. 60 kg P2O5 ha-1). Application of 40 kg S ha-1 and it was found at par 20 kg S ha-1 and significantly increased grain yield by 28.13 and 15.95% and straw yield by 11.13 and 03.37% over the control (S0). Significantly the maximum grain yield 4937 kg ha-1 was produced when wheat crop was fertilized with 90 kg P2O5 ha-1 + 40 kg S ha-1 (P3S2) which was remained statistically at par with treatment combinations of P3S1, P2S1, P1S2, and P0S2.
Key words: Yield, Phosphorus, Sulphur, Interaction effect.
