Abstract:
An experiment was conducted during rabi season of the year 2013-14 at College Agronomy Farm, B. A. College of Agriculture, Anand Agricultural University, Anand (Gujarat) to study the quality of linseed (Linum usitatissimum L.) influenced by irrigation and level of nitrogen. Higher values of quality parameters like oil content, protein content, nitrogen content in seed and available nitrogen in soil after harvest were recorded under application of irrigation at 0.8 IW: CPE. Each successive increase in the level of nitrogen from 30 to 90 kg N ha-1 significantly increased protein content, nitrogen content in seed and available nitrogen in soil after harvest. The oil content was recorded higher with application of nitrogen @ 30 kg N ha-1.
