A field experiment was conducted on sandy loam soil having sodic in nature with poor quality of irrigation water at Kothara (North-West Agro-climatic zone of Gujarat) during rabi season of 2002-03 to study the critical growth stages of irrigation with and without sulphur on mustard. The results revealed that the growth, yield attributes and seed yield were significantly higher with irrigation schedule A (32, 49,62, 77 and 93 DAS) excluding number of seeds siliqua1. The highest significant WUE was recorded under the irrigation schedule I (49 and 62 DAS). However, in case of both sulphur levels excluding plant height and length of main branch, all the other growth and yield attributes, yield and WUE were positively influenced on application of sulphur in the form of gypsum @ 2.5 t ha-1. Interaction effect of irrigation schedule A and sulphur was significant on oil content.
