Abstract

In a pot trial, sorghum cv. CSH-1 in a sandy loam soil was given all combinations of 4 levels of Se as sodium selenite and 4 levels of S as potassium sulphate in the nutrient solution. Application of Se at 1, 2 and 4 ppm stimulated growth and increased DM yield in the presence of S. S and Se decreased P uptake alone and in combination. Total uptake of Se, S and fertilizer S and P were related to DM yield
