A field experiment was conducted during Rabi season of 2013-14 at the Students Instructional Farm of Chandra Shekhar Azad University of Agriculture and Technology, Kanpur. The main objectives of this field study was to evaluate the effect of Sulphur, Zinc and FYM on growth attributes, yield attributes, yields and economics of french bean in Central Plain Zone of Uttar Pradesh. The treatment comprised 12 combinations of three sulphur level viz., control, 15 and 30 kg/ha, two zinc levels viz., 0 and 10 kg/ha and two FYM levels viz., 0 and 10 t/ha which was laidout in split plot design with three replications. The soil of the experimental field was alluvial in texture with pH of 7.3 and EC of 0.26 mm has/ cm at 25. French bean of PDR-14 variety was used in the study. Results showed that the growth attributes viz., Plant height of number of branches per plant, Fresh weight by 30kg/ha sulphur doses over control and 15 kg/ha sulphur, respectively. Individual application of Z@10 kg/ha was found significantly superior over control dose to increased all growth attributes except dry weight per plant of study field tail. The number of branches/ plant and fresh weight/plant was significantly increased in respect 10 t/ha FYM compared to without FYM. Individually application of S@30 kg/ha, Z@10 kg/ha and FYM@10 t/ha were found significantly superior in all yield attributes over next doses, respectively except dry weight/plant in respect to FYM only. The highest grain yield (24.52 q/ha), straw yield (29.68 q/ha) harvest index (45.10%), gross income (Rs. 138192/ ha), net income (Rs. 102847/ha) and return per rupee (2.90) were recorded significant upto 30 kg/ha sulphur over 0 and 15 kg/ha sulphur, doses, respectively. The increment evaluated in grain yield (41.08%) and (14.10%) and net return (57.76%) and (18.26%) compared to control and 15 kg/ha sulphur, respectively. Individual used of Z@10kg/ha and FYM @10t/ha were found significantly more produced than without Zinc and FYM in respect to yields and economics parameters, respectively expect return per rupee by FYM only. The increment percentage in grain yield (21.49% and 16.83%) and net return (29.02% and 15.81%) compared to without Zinc and without FYM doses, respectively.
