Abstract

Mustard is the second most important edible oilseed crop of India. It accounts for more than 25 per cent of the
total oilseed products in the country. A field experiment of Indian mustard was conducted during rabi 2018-19 at
Oilseed Research Farm, Kalyanpur, Kanpur (U.P.) using different doses of hydrogel and salicylic acid @ 2.5 and
5.0 kg and 100 ppm, 200 ppm/ha respectively, using in Indian mustard variety Varuna. The results indicated that the doses of 5.00 kg/ha hydrogel and 200 ppm salicylic acid spray at flowering stage and siliqua formation stage was better. It gave more than 19.98 per cent higher grain yield in comparison to control.
