Sulphur and Boron Fertilization on Yield Quality and Nutrient Uptake by Bangladesh Soybean-4
S.K. Sarker , M.A.H. Chowdhury and H.M. Zakir

Abstract:
Effect of S and B fertilization on yield, quality and nutrient uptake by soybean was investigated. Experiment comprised five levels of both sulphur and boron viz. 0, 10, 20, 30 and 50 kg S ha-1 and 0, 0.5, 1.0, 2.0 and 4.0 kg B ha-1. Yield and yield attributes were significant when S and B were applied individually but their interaction were not significant. The highest biological yield and most of the yield attributes were obtained for the treatment combination of 30 kg S and 1.0 kg B ha-1. Grain yield was found to be significantly and positively correlated with effective pod and seed per plant. Grain yield was directly proportional to harvest index. Grain S and B uptake was significant by both S and B application individually but their content was not significant. Protein and oil contents of soybean grain were increased with increasing levels of both S and B though their effects were not significant. A positive and significant correlation was observed between protein and oil contents of Bangladesh soybean-4. The overall results suggested that S and B @ 30 and 1.0 kg ha-1 alone or in combination proved to be the best in respect of the parameters studied.
