Sulphur (S) deficiency is widespread in Indian soils and is been emerging as a major limitation for enhancing productivity. Soils of Karnataka are largely deficient in sulphur (52 %). In this context, survey work was carried out during the year 2017 to know the status of sulphur and its forms and distribution in 90 soil samples from direct seeded paddy growing areas in 15 villages in Kalaghatagi Taluk of Dharwad district. Available sulphur status in soils ranged from 6.70 to 25.3 mg kg- 1 and 42.2 per cent of the soil samples were deficient in available sulphur. The different forms of sulphur in these soils followed the order: Water soluble-sulphur < Sulphate-sulphur < Organically bound-sulphur < Total-sulphur.

Keywords: Sulphur, Sulphur forms, Direct seeded paddy soils
