Abstract: A field experiment was conducted during rabi season of 2013-2014 on sandy loam soil of student instructional farm (SIF) of C.S. Azad University of Agriculture & Technology, Kanpur (U.P.) to study the effect of various irrigation schedule and sulphur levels on productivity and water use efficiency of Indian mustard [Brassica juncea (L.)]. The pH of soil of experiment field was 7.3 with available N2 129.0, P2O5 17.1 and K2O 187 kg ha-1. The treatment consisted of six irrigation stages IR0 (no sown irrigation), IR1 (30-35 DAS), IR2 (flowering), IR3 (30-35 DAS and flowering), IR4 (30-35 and siliqua development) and IR5 (30-35, flowering + siliqua development) in main plot and three levels of sulphur S0 (no sulphur), S1 (20 Kg ha-1) and S2 (30 kg ha-1) in sub plot were tested in slit plot design (SPD) with three replications. Results showed that the maximum profit was observed with the three irrigation levels IR5 (30-35 + F + SD) which were higher by 20.47, 25.51, 47.01, 54.65 and 123.90 percent over IR4, IR3, IR2, IR1 and IR0 respectively. In case of sulphur the maximum profit was observed in S2 treatment which was higher by 4.36 and 11.71 percent then S1 and S0 respectively.
