*Corresponding author

The Field experiments were conducted during the six consecutive years (kharif) from 2013-14 to 2019-20 at the Dryland Farming Research Station, Zonal Agriculture Research Station, Solapur to ascertain the effect of sulphur levels and FYM on yield, oil content and nutrient uptake of safflower under dry land agriculture. Application of NPK 50:25:00 kg ha-1 + FYM 1 t ha-1 with sulphur 40 kg ha-1 recorded significantly higher plant height (78.70 cm), number of capsules / plant (22.58), 100 grain weight (6.55gm), moisture use efficiency for grain (6.30 kg ha-1mm-1), grain and straw yield (15.83 and 38.42 q ha-1) oil yield (500.3 kg ha-1), oil content (31.60%) significantly higher uptake of N, P and K (44.76,17.37 and 100.15 kg ha-1) with higher gross monitory returns, net returns and cost benefit ratio (Rs.72249/-,Rs.47429/- and 2.91).
