Abstract

A field experiment was carried out at Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi during winter season of year, 2017-2018 to observe the effect of sulphur and boron levels and integrated nutrient management on growth and yield of Indian mustard [Brassica juncea (L.) Czernj. and Cosson]. The experiment comprised of three sulphur doses (0, 30 and 60 kg S ha-1), three boron levels (0, 1 and 2 kg B ha-1) and three farm yard manure levels (0, 3 and 6 t FYM ha-1) along with recommended dose fertilizers 120-60-60 kg N-P2 O5 -K2 O ha-1 assigned into split-split plot design with three replications. The results revealed that application of sulphur, boron and FYM progressively increase plants growth attributes, seed, stover yield, biological yields and harvest index of Indian mustard. The seed, stover as well as biological yields of mustard were significantly influenced with the increase in the levels of S, B and FYM from control to higher levels and was noted maximum with 60 kg S ha-1, 2 kg B ha-1 and 6 t FYM ha-1. However, higher doses of S (60 kg S ha-1) and B (2 kg B ha-1) were statistically at par with adjacent medium doses (30 kg S ha-1 and 1 kg B ha-1) during the experimentation. Thus, crop fertilized with 100% RDF + 6 t FYM ha-1 with 30 kg S ha-1 and 1 kg B ha-1 proved beneficial in improving all the growth attributes as well as economic yield of Indian mustard.
