Abstract

A field experiment was conducted during rabi season of 2004- 05 as well as 2005-06 to assess the effect of nutrient management practices on yield and quality of Indian mustard [Brassica juncea (L.) czern coss] under late sown conditions. Integrated use of 100% recommended fertilizer dose along with organic sources of nutrients resulted in significantly higher number of branches/plant, siliqua/ branch, seeds/siliquae and seed yield of mustard in comparison to application of 100% recommended dose of NPK alone. The protein content and protein yield were showed considerable improvement in response to the combined application of organic and inorganic sources of nutrients. Integrated nutrient management practices lead to higher content of Palmitic acid, Oleic acid, Linoleic acid, Linolenic acid Eicosenoic acid and Erucic acid and lower content of Glucosinolate in comparison to the application of chemical fertilizer alone
