Effect of farm yard manure and Sulphur on production of Indian mustard: A review
Vishal Kumar, RK Singh, Dharminder and Manjeet Kumar
The continuous mining of nutrients from soils coupled with inadequate and imbalanced fertilizer use has resulted in emergence of multi nutrient deficiencies. Mainly of six nutrients (N, P, K, S, Zn and B) were observed deficient in Indian soils. For maintaining the soil fertility, application of balance dose fertilizer along with organic manure is necessary. The long-term application of farmyard manure (FYM) has been reported to make nutrients available gradually, in synchrony with plant needs. Farm Yard Manure helps in increasing microbes’ population and their activities, which play an important role in easily availability of complex nutrients to the plants. Sulphur is involved directly or indirectly in different metabolic pathways of plants and play important role in biosynthesis of oil, carbohydrates, proteins and fats. Thus now-a-days sulphur is being considered as the fourth major nutrient element after NPK. Application of sulphur and farm yard manure has been reported to have a favorable impact on oil content as well as enhancing productivity of mustard at the same time it maintained the soil fertility status and also helps in keeping soil in good condition.
