Abstract: A field experiment was carried out during rabi season in the Entisol soil with neutral reaction at the Instructional Farm, Bidhan Chandra Krishi Viswavidyalaya, Mohanpur, Nadia, West Bengal, during 1998 - 2000 under irrigated condition to evaluate the effect of potassium and sulphur on the productivity, nutrient uptake and quality improvement of chickpea. Highest seed yield of chickpea (l.38 t ha\"1) was obtained when the crop was treated with 25 kg K along with 40 kg S ha\"1 which was closely followed (1.30 t ha\"1 ) with the application of 12.5 kg Kand 40
kg S ha\"1. Increased uptake of nutrients by the crop was obtained with the treatment receiving higher dose of potassiwn (25 kg K ha\"1 ) along with higher dose of sulphur (40 kg S ha\"1). The experimental results also revealed that maximum protein content in the seeds of chickpea (23.25 %) was obtained with 25 kg Kha\"1 (K2) with 40 kg S ha\"1 (S2)
