A field experiment was carried out during Rabi season of 2021-22 at Agronomy Farm, B. A. College of Agriculture, and Anand Agricultural University, Anand (Gujarat) to study the effect of sulphur and iron on growth, yield and quality of chickpea. The experiment was carried out using twelve treatment combinations consisted of four levels of sulphur (0, 10, 20 and 30 kg/ha) and three levels of iron (0, 5 and 10 kg/ha) which were tested under randomized block design (factorial). Results of the experiment revealed that the treatment receiving 30 kg S/ha significantly increased the plant height, number of branches/plant, number of pods/plant, seed and haulm yield of chickpea as well as crude protein in seed. Among different levels of iron, significantly maximum plant height, number of branches/plant, number of pods/plant, seed and haulm yield of chickpea were found with the application of 10 kg Fe/ha.
