Abstract:
The present investigation was conducted in order to evaluate the nutrition potential of mustard seeds influenced by integrated plant nutrient management practices. This field experiment was conducted at Regional Agriculture Testing and Demonstration Station Bilwa, Bareilly district of Uttar Pradesh. Fifteen treatments consisting of 100, 75 and 50 % of the recommended dose of fertilizers (RDF) either alone or with successive addition of farmyard manure (FYM 10 t/ ha, sulphur @ 40 kg S/ha, zinc @25 kg ZnSO4/ha, boron@1kg/ B/ha) were tested. Successive decrease in fertility (100, 75 and 50 % recommended fertility) significantly decreased the most undesired erucic acid content and increased palmitic (saturated fatty acid), oleic and linoleic acid. The highest protein content (21.37%) was recorded with treatment T5. Average minimum total carbohydrate content was recorded in 75 % recommended fertility than in 50% and 100%. In the present study, it was found that the application of recommended dose of sulphur, zinc, boron along with farm yard manure increased the maximum nutrients and reduced antinutritional properties.
