Planting methods and nutrient management are the most important factors in increasing the productivity of crop plants. Broadcasting and line sowing are common planting methods for rapeseed-mustard. Among nutrients, nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) are vital nutrients along with sulphur (S) and boron (B) that play key roles in plants. In present research the effect of planting methods and nutrient management in mustard (Brassica rapa L.) was studied. A field experiment was conducted in the Research Field of the Department of Agriculture at Maharishi Markandeshwar University, Sadopur (Haryana) during the Rabi season 2020-21. A treatment combination of line sowing + T5 gave results with maximum benefits in most of the parameters. At the same time it was also observed that boron and sulphur can also influence most of the traits if applied in an optimum dose. On the basis of the experimental findings, it may be concluded that the application of RDF along with boron and sulphur in deficient areas is recommended to increase the growth and productivity of mustard along with line sowing as an appropriate method of sowing.
