The present study in pot experiments was conducted on “effect of different level of sulphur and phosphorus on growth and yield attributes of sesamum (Sesamum indicum L.)”. The treatments were taken in factorial completely randomized design in combination of four levels of S (0, 10, 20 and 30 mg kg-1 of soil) and three levels of P (0, 10 and 20 mg kg-1 of soil) applied through elemental sulphur and potassium dihydrogen phosphate, respectively. A recommended dose of N and K was applied with the treatments. A significant increase in seed and stalk yield of sesamum could be achieved by application of sulphur in an alluvial soil having high available phosphorus. Among the various treatments tested, maximum seed yield was obtained with combined application of 20 mg kg-1 phosphorus and sulphur which was 77.58% higher over control.

Keywords: Different level of sulphur and phosphorus, Attributes.
