Abstract: Brown sarson (Brassica rapa L.) is the most predominant species among the oilseeds cultivated in Kashmir valley as it fits well in rice based cropping system due to its early maturity.Field experiment was conducted during rabi 2013-14 and 2014-15 to evaluate the impact of integrating organic and inorganic nutrients on growth and seed yield of brown sarson at Mountain Research Centre For Field Crops, Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology of Kashmir, Khudwani on silty clay loam soil neutral in reaction and with medium fertility. Eight treatments (T1 Control, T2 Recommended fertilizer dose (RFD), T3 RFD + 20 kg S, T4 RFD + 10 t FYM, T5 RFD + 2 t Vermicompost, T6 RFD + 4 t Vermicompost T7 RFD + 20 kg S + 1.0 kg Boron and T8 RFD + 20 kg S + 1.0 kg Boron + 2 t Vermicompost) were tested in a randomised block design with four replications. The results indicated that RFD + 20 kg S + 1.0 kg Boron + 2 t Vermicompost recorded highest seed yield (12.33 q ha-1) followed by RFD + 20 kg S+ 1.0 kg boron and the yield superiority exhibited by integrating 2 tonnes vermicompost, one kg boron and 20 kg sulphur with RFD was 66.84 % and 27.11 % over control and RFD, respectively.
