Abstract:
A field experiment were conducted to “Study the effect of nitrogen and sulphur levels on yield attributes, yield and quality of Indian mustard [Brassica juncea (L.) Czern & Coss.]. during 2006-07 and 2007-08 at instructional farm of N.D. University of Agriculture & Technology, Kumarganj, Faizabad. The experiment comprised of four nitrogen levels (0, 40, 80 and 120 kg ha-1) and four sulphur levels (0, 20, 40 and 60 kg ha-1) tested in Randomized Block Design. Application of nitrogen increased all the yield attributes significantly viz; number of siliquae plant-1, length of siliqua (cm), number of seeds siliqua-1 and test weight up to 120 kg N ha-1. All the above yield attributes gave maximum response at 60 kg S ha-1. The highest protein content of 21.61% and 21.52 were obtained with 120 kg N ha-1 during 2006-07 and 2006-07. Maximum protein content was 20.94% and 20.89% were at 60 kg sulphur ha-1 during respective years. The maximum seed yield (19.20 & 18.39q ha-1) and stover yield (59.49& 57.21 q ha-1) were recorded at 120 kg N, which was at par with 80 kg N ha-1 in respective years. In case of sulphur application the maximum seed yield (18.89& 18.08 q ha-1) and stover yield (58.38& 55.16 q ha-1) were recorded at 60 kg S ha-1 in respective years which was at par with 40 kg S ha-1. The protein yield (415.16 & 395.88kg ha-1.) and oil yield (7.3 & 7.06 q ha-1) was obtained maximum at 120 kg N ha-1 in respective years, which was at par with 80 kg N ha-1 significantly superior over the control and 80 kgNha-1. The application of 60 kg sulphur gave the maximum protein yield (396.56 & 380.08 kg ha-1) and oil yield (7.66 &7.36 kg ha-1) in respective years, which was at par with 40 kg S ha-1.
