Abstract:

The field experiment was conducted at ICAR- National Institute on Abiotech Stress Management, Baramati to study the effect of different sources and levels of sulphur on soil nutrient availability, yield, quality and nutrient uptake of bellary onion. The experiment consists of 14 treatments replicated thrice in randomized block design. The treatment combinations of sources of sulphur viz: elemental sulphur, potassium schoenite ammonium sulphate and three levels of sulphur @ 30, 45 and 60 kg ha-1 applied as soil application and nutripellet pack in presence of Thiobacillus thiooxidans with recommended dose of fertilizer (100:40:60 kg ha-1 N,P2O5 & K2O + 15t ha-1 FYM). The source of phosphorus was used as diaammonium phosphate. The onion bulb was stored after harvesting in ambient condition, the storage study was carried out at 30, 60, 90 and 120 days after harvest. The periodical physical loss in weight was significantly lower in treatment RDF + S @ 45 kg ha-1 as elemental sulphur + Thiobacillus thiooxidans nutripellet pack at 30, 60, 90 and 120 days after harvest (2.32, 6.98, 8.99 and 14.99 percent respectively) and RDF + S@ 60 kg ha-1 as potassium schoenite nutripellet pack at 60, 90 and 120 days after harvest (7.22, 9.42 and 15.64 percent respectively). The sulphur sources of potassium schoenite @ 45 and 60 kg ha-1 nutripellet pack are beneficial for storability of onion.
