Abstract


The field experiment was conducted on Pusa Bold variety of mustard with 10 treatments in RBD in Rabi season- 2009-10 at Crop Research Centre of, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel University of Agriculture and Technology; Meerut (U.P). Maximum primary branches (11.05), secondary branches (31.33), siliqua per plant (545.35), number of seed per siliqua (13.55), seed weight per plant 30.38 g and test weight (1000 seed weight, 6.50 g) were recorded, the biological yield was observed highest (114.80 q ha-1) and the grain yield was also (23.40 q ha-1) in T9{100 % NPK (RDF) + Zn @ 25 Kg ha-1 (B) + Fe @ 25 Kg ha-1 (B)}. The maximum stover yield noticed 91.40 q ha-1as compared to T1 (control) (40.82 q ha-1.), highest total nitrogen uptake by mustard crop, recorded 97.87 kg/ha, in case of phosphorus and potassium uptake by mustard crop was also observed 21.82 kg/ha and 152.82 kg/ha, respectively. The all over present investigation shows that the maximum yield attributes was found when zinc and iron was applied basal with recommended dose of fertilizers.
