Abstract: The study was carried out status of sulphur in mixed red and black soils of Riwa district (M.P.) having 204 surface soil samples (0-15 cm) GPS based and 50 plant samples were collected from rice based cropping zone of Rewa district using Geo Positioning System (GPS). Sample was collected from eight blocks (Rewa, Gudh, Sirmor, Raipur Karchuliyan, Teonther, Mouganj and Hanumana) of Rewa district. The district spread between latitude-24o21'59.9" N to 24o48'40.9" N and longitude-81o09'21.8" E to 82o.02'02.2" E. The mean value of pH, electrical conductivity (EC), organic carbon and CaCO3 in soil were 7.45, 021 dSm-1, 5.03 g kg-1and 2.83 g kg-1, respectively. The average of available sulphur (S) content was observed 12.38 mg kg-1. The S concentration in rice grain and straw 0.055%, and 0.096 %, respectively. Sulphur was found to be positively correlation and statistically not-significant with pH and positively and significant correlation with organic carbon. The available sulphur show negative correlation with CaCO3. The results of the study indicated that 45.10 % sulphur deficiency is the major disorder in mixed red and black soils of Rewa district of Madhya Pradesh, India.
