Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted during rabi season in 2021-2022 at the Research farm, Department of Agronomy, AKS University, Satna (M.P.), to evaluate the response of different source of sulphur and biofertilizer on growth yield and quality of mustard (Brassica juncea L.) The experiment was laid out in Factorial Randomized Block Design comprising four Biofertilizer levels viz. PSB @ 10 ml/kg seed B1, KSB @ 10 ml/kg seed B2, ZSB @ 10 ml/kg seed B3, Azotobacter @ 10 ml/kg seed B4 and three Sulphur levels, Bentonite sulphur S1, Zinc sulphate S2, Ammonium sulphate and treatments were replicated thrice. Results revealed that different levels of biofertilizer affected the growth parameters as well as yield attributes and yield of mustard. Incorporation of ZSB @ 10 ml/kg B3 recorded maximum plant height at 90 DAS (150.14 cm), number of branches per plant at 90 DAS (21.97), Number of leaves per plant (35.31), seed yield (16.80 q ha-1), straw yield (55.26 q ha-1), and oil content (38.14%), however, number of seeds per siliqua (11.58) and harvest index (23.28%) were higher with incorporation of 10ml/kg B2. Among different source of Sulphur, number of branches per plant at 90 DAS (22.69), number of seeds per siliqua (12.37), grain yield (17.73q ha-1), harvest index (23.71%) and oil content (39.07%) were observed when crop was sown on 6 November.
