Abstract:
An experiment were conducted during the winter season of 2014-15 and 2015-16 at Bikaner, to evaluate the integrated nutrient management and weed control measures on weed, growth, yield attributes and yield of mustard (Brassica juncea L.). The highest dry matter of different weeds, growth parameters viz. plant height, dry matter accumulation and leaf chlorophyll, yield parameters like number of silique per plant and seeds per siliqua which laid to the highest seed and straw yield under the treatment 5 t FYM + 100 % RDF and 5 t FYM + 75 % RDF + biofertilizer. Among the weed management sources application of 1.0 kg ha-1 pendimethalin reduced the dry matter of different weeds and enhance the growth, yield attributes and also produced the maximum seed and straw yield. A strongly significant and negatively correlation was observed between total dry matter of weeds and yield but strongly and positively correlation was yield attributes and yield of mustard.
