Abstract: This study characterized the influence of Gypsum (CaSO42H20) a chemical fertilizer on Tulsi (Ocimum basilicum) plant. The experiment was conducted with five different methods of treatments Viz. Control,Incineration,Broadcasting,Lines and spots and constant 1 ton /hec gypsum applied to the field for observing morphological variability through a randomized completely block design with four replications. Data was recorded on plant height, Plant weight, Stem weight, Leaf weight and Number of leaves. There was a great significance observed in Plant height, Plant weight and Stem weight. Interesting high morphological variability was seen constantly in the Spots treatment. Hence, the results suggest that Spots treatments works best to achieve better growth at 1 ton /hec application of gypsum.
