A field experiment was conducted during zaid season of 2021 at Crop Research Farm, Department of Agronomy, Naini Agriculture Institute, SHUATS, Prayagraj, Uttar Pradesh to evaluate the effect of different levels of sulphur and boron on growth and yield of greengram. The treatment consists of three different levels of Sulphur (10, 20, 30 kg/ha) and Boron (0.5, 1.0, 2.0 kg/ha). The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with Nine treatments replicated thrice. Results revealed that significantly higher plant height (39.7cm), plant dry weight (13.27g/plant), number of branches per plant (6.20), Number of pods per plant (22.60), Number of seeds per pod (7.07), test weight (33.01 g), Grain yield (1.58 t/ha) and Stover yield (2.67t/ha), were obtained by the application of sulphur at the rate 30 kg/ha along with boron 2 kg/ha. The successive increase in fertilizer levels of sulphur and boron increased the growth parameters, yield attributes and yield of greengram.
