A field experiment was conducted at College Agronomy Farm, Anand Agricultural University, Anand, Gujarat to study the effect of irrigation and sulphur on performance of sesamum (Sesamum indicum L.) during semi-rabi season of the year 2011-12. Higher values of growth characters, yield attributes, seed and stalk yield were recorded under irrigation treatment (I3) i.e. Irrigation at branching+flowering +capsule formation+at seed filling stages. Each successive increase in the levels of sulphur from 0 to 40 kg ha-1 significantly increased the growth and yield attributes as well as seed and stalk yield. Higher net realization and BCR ha-1 were recorded under irrigation treatment I3 (Irrigation at branching+flowering +capsule formation+at seed filling stages) and 40 kg S ha-1.
