Application of Sulphur Levels and Different Micronutrients on Yield and its Attributing Traits of Garlic (Allium sativum L.)
International Journal of Plant & Soil Science,
The field experiment was conducted at the Horticulture Farm, Sri Karan Narendra College of Agriculture, Jobner (Rajasthan) during 2019-20 and 2020-21. The experiment consisted of 20 treatment combinations with four soil application of sulphur (S0-control, S1-sulphur 20 kg/ha, S2-sulphur 40 kg/ha and S3-sulphur 60 kg/ha) and five levels of foliar application of micronutrients (M0-Control, M1-zinc sulphate @ 0.6%, M2-ferrous sulphate @ 0.2%, M3-borax @ 0.5 and M4-Ammonium molybdate @ 0.5%) in factorial randomized block design with three replications. The results of the study have clearly indicated that among sulphur levels, application of sulphur 60 kg/ha significantly improved growth parameters viz., neck thickness, number of cloves per plant, clove length, clove girth, polar diameter, equatorial diameter, enhanced significantly by application of sulphur 60 kg/ha (S3) in both the years as well as in pooled analysis. Similarly, among micronutrients foliar application of zinc sulphate @ 0.6% significantly influenced all the growth, yield attributes viz., neck thickness, number of cloves per plant, clove length, clove girth, polar diameter, equatorial diameter of garlic in both the years as well as in pooled analysis.
