Abstract: A field experiment was conducted at Agronomy Farm, S.K.N. College of Agriculture, Jobner, (Rajasthan) during kharif, 2013 on loamy sand soil to study the effect of organic manures and mineral nutrients on soil properties and yield of clusterbean [Cyamposis tetragonoloba (L.) Taub.]. The treatments consisted of four levels of organic manures (Control, FYM @ 10 t/ha,vermicompost @ 3 t/ha and poultry manure @ 4 t/ha) and five levels of mineral nutrients (Control, elemental sulphur @ 40 kg/ha, elemental sulphur @ 40 kg/ha+ zinc sulphate @ 25 kg/ha, elemental sulphur @ 40 kg/ha + zinc sulphate @ 25 kg/ha +ferrous sulphate @ 50 kg/ha, elemental sulphur @ 40 kg/ha+ zinc sulphate @ 25 kg/ha +ferrous sulphate @ 50 kg/ha + ammonium molybdate @ 1 kg/ha) were applied to the clusterbean var. RGC-1003. The experiment was laid out in randomised block design and replicated three. The moisture retention, organic carbon, available nitrogen, phosphorus, sulphur, molybdenum, iron and zinc in soil at harvest of crop were recorded significantly maximum with the application of poultry manure @ 4 t/ha over control. Maximum available nitrogen, phosphorus, sulphur, molybdenum, iron and zinc were recorded under the application of S+Zn+Fe+Mo.
