Abstract: A field experiment was conducted during Zaid season (2021) at Crop Research Farm, Department of Agronomy, SHUATS, Allahabad (U.P.). The soil of experimental plot was sandy loam in texture. The treatment consisted of Sulphur 10 kg/ha + 20 cm x 10 cm, Sulphur 10 kg/ha + 25 cm x 10 cm, Sulphur 10 kg/ha + 30 cm x 10 cm, Sulphur 20 kg/ha + 20 cm x 10 cm, Sulphur 20 kg/ha + 25 cm x 10 cm, Sulphur 20 kg/ha + 30 cm x 10 cm, Sulphur 30 kg/ha + 20 cm x 10 cm, Sulphur 30 kg/ha + 25 cm x 10 cm, Sulphur 30 kg/ha + 30 cm x 10 cm. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design, with 9 treatments replicated thrice. Results that maximum plant height (45.40 cm), numbers of nodules per plant (6.90), plant dry weight (8.20 g/plant), numbers of branches per plant (6.17), number of pods per plant (35.90), number of seeds per pod (7.40), test weight (34.67g), grain yield (0.83 t/ha) and straw yield (1.80 t/ha) was significantly influenced with application of Sulphur 30 kg/ha + 30 cm x 10 cm. Maximum gross returns (INR 60266.66), net returns (INR 34721.26) and B:C ratio (1.35) was recorded with application of Sulphur 30 kg/ha + 30 cm x 10 cm. Therefore, that application of Sulphur 30 kg/ha + 30 cm x 10 cm was more productive and cost effective it can be concluded.
