Manifestation of improved cultivars, irrigation and sulphur in mustard growth, productivity, quality and profitability: A review

Author(s):

Abstract:
Globally, oilseed with second largest area and production holds the second position after cereals. Among oilseeds, mustard is the second best edible crop after groundnut but its average productivity is substantially lower than the global average which could be ascribed to lower use of agronomic inputs such as improved cultivars, irrigation and nutrient especially sulphur. Cultivars with differential genetic potential bring significant variation in growth and yield and hence, nutrient uptake by crop. Alteration in number of irrigation and levels of sulphur also produces subsequent effect in crop production especially mustard. This review attempts to provide an overview of manipulation in the concerned inputs under varied agro-climatic conditions and their individual and interactive effect on mustard.
