Author(s): Mahipat Singh Yadav and CS Dhanai
Abstract: An experiment was conducted during rabi season 2016-17 at the research farm of Institute of Agricultural Science, Bundel khand University, Jhansi (U. P.) to find out the effect of different doses of nitrogen and sulphur on seed yield and other characters on ‘Varuna’ variety of Indian mustard. Different doses, 40, 80 and 120 kg/ha nitrogen and 15, 30, and 45 kg / ha sulphur significantly out yielded the 0 kg/ha nitrogen and sulphur in seed and biological yield. Almost similar results were obtained in case of plant height, branching, siliquae/plant, siliquae length, number of seed/siliquae, harvest index, oil and protein content in seed. The application of 120 kg N/ha and 45 Kg S/ha was the best combination for getting higher seed yield with its better quality.
