Abstract:
An experiment on “Effect of integrated nutrient management and mulching on yield and quality of Mustard (Brassica juncea L.) and soil quality in partially reclaimed Sodic Soil.’’ was carried out during Rabi session 2018-19 and 2019-20 at Agronomy Research Farm, A.N.D.U.A. & T. Kumarganj, Ayodhya (U.P.). The experiment consists of fourteen treatments were laid out in Randomized Block Design (RBD) with three replications. As per experiment the results revealed that the growth attributes and yield parameters were affected by different INM and mulching practices. The values was recorded with the treatment T13 at all growth stages. The values of plant height (cm), number of branches plant-1 and dry matter accumulation plant-1 gradually in in and up to harvest under all the treatments. While maximum rate of increase was found from 30 DAS to 60 DAS under the all treatments. The maximum growth attributes (at 60DAS) like plant height (83.63 and 83.70 cm), number of branches plant-1 (19.01 and 19.60) dry matter accumulation plant-1 (23.15 and 23.31) and maximum growth attributes (at harvest) plant height (184.67 and 191.19 cm), number of branches plant-1 (23.65 and 24.53) dry matter accumulation plant-1 (56.72 and 57.60) recorded where apply 75% NPK+ N-25% (FYM) +S @40 kg + Mulching @5 t/ha-1 (T13) respectively. Similarly highest seed yield (21.05 and 22.08 kg ha-1) and stover yield (49.42 and 49.42 kg ha-1) of mustard crop was recorded under the treatment T13 -75% NPK+ N-25% (FYM) +S @40 kg + Mulching @5 t/ha-1 during respective years 2018-19 and 2019-20. Which was significantly higher over the treatment T13 -75% NPK+ N-25% (FYM) +S @40 kg + Mulching @5 t/ha-1 while at par with treatment T14 -75% NPK+ N-25% (FYM) + ZnSO4 @25kg + Mulching @5 t/ha-1.
