Field experiment was conducted at the alluvial zone of West Bengal, India during 2000 & 2001 to study the effect of different levels of irrigation and sources of sulphur on the productivity of soybean. Results revealed that seed yield (1.88 t/ha), Oil content (21.31%) were maximum when the crop was irrigated at 0.45 atmospheric tension and sulphur was applied @ 40 kg S/ha in the form of gypsum. But the gypsum is more costly than single super phosphate. For that reason the net return (Rs. 11,894/ha) and return per rupee investment (1.93) were showed maximum value for the application of single super phosphate along with irrigation at 0.45 atmospheric tension. Scheduling of irrigation at 0.30 atmospheric tension increased the consumptive use of water but decreased the water use efficiency.
