Next to cereal, oil seed crops play crucial role in Indian economy. Among various factors responsible for the productivity of mustard are weed control methods and planting patterns. Arrangement of plants are not only responsible for increase in crop productivity but also help to reduce infestation of weeds, saving of water when crop are planted on ridges or beds. Spacing improves the conservation of natural weapons like water, light and nutrients, etc. The different methods of planting pattern influence the yield and growth characters.
