 ABSTRACT

A field experiment was conducted during kharif sesson 2016 at Palanahalli village , Magadi taluk, Ramanagara distinct to study the “Effect of varied levels of sulphur and sources of organics on growth, yield and economics of soybean in Alfisols of Karnataka”. The experiment was laid out in RCBD with seventeen treatments and replicated thrice. The results revealed that application of  100 % RDF + poultry manure at 6 t ha-1 + sulphur at 40 kg ha-1 through gypsum recorded significantly higher growth and yield parameters like plant height (73.67 cm), number of leaves per plant (16.22), number of branches (10.30), dry matter content (32.33g plant-1), test weight (13.88 gm) and yield parameters like Number of pods plant-1  (123.33), Pod yield plant-1 (63.17g), pod yield (30.30q ha-1), seed yield (26.90 q ha-1) and haulm yield (44.15 q ha-1). However, higher Benefit:Cost (B:C) ratio was also observed in application of  100 % RDF + poultry manure at 6 t ha-1 + sulphur at 40 kg ha-1 through gypsum (3.41) and lower B:C ratio recorded in treatment receiving recommended dose of fertilizer (RDF) and farm yard manure (FYM) application.

Key words: Sulphur, Organic, Soybean, Growth, Yield, Alfisols, and B:C ratio
