Abstract Effect of varying levels of sulphur (0, 20, 40, 80 kg ha$^{−1}$) and two sources of sulphur was studied on sugarcane plant in a field experiment conducted for three consecutive years in Entisol soil. Application of sulphur upto 80 kg ha$^{−1}$ to the crop from both the sources increased the cane yield significantly. The cane yield increased from 3.7 to 13.47 t ha$^{−1}$ and 5.03 to 13.32 t ha$^{−1}$ due to application of elemental sulphur and fertisulf, respectively over the control. Application of sulphur @ 80 kg ha$^{−1}$ increased the average yield of sugar 8.47 t ha$^{−1}$ in comparison to control (6.58 t ha$^{−1}$). Sucrose content in cane juice increased from 14.66 to 15.68 and 16.04 to 16.86 at 10$^{th}$ and 12$^{th}$ month crop age in both the sources and levels of sulphur. Increasing levels of applied sulphur increased the residual effect in the soil. Both the sources of sulphur i.e. elemental sulphur and fertisulf were at par with respect to cane yield and juice quality.
