Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during Rabi season of 2016-2017 at Crop Research Farm, Department of Agronomy, Naini Agricultural Institute, SHUATS, Allahabad, (U.P.), to study the “ Effect of Biofertilizers and Levels of Sulphur on Growth and Yield of Mustard [Brassica juncea (L.) Czern. & Coss]’’. It was consisting of combination of four levels of biofertilizer viz., Azotobacter, Phosphate Solubilizing Bacteria (PSB) and Azotobacter + Phosphate-Solubilizing bacteria with a control (no seed inoculation), and two levels of sulphur 20 and 40 kg ha-1 with a control. This experiment includes 12 treatments which were laid out in Randomized Block Design with three replications. The experiment results revealed that the growth parameters such as plant height (167.50 cm), dry weight (44.40 g), number of branch plant-1 (6.80), yield attributes viz., number of siliqua plant-1 (291.20) and test weight (4.51 g) at 100 DAS, significantly recorded in treatment T12 with the application of Azotobacter + Phosphate Solubilizing bacteria + 40 kg S ha-1, as compared to control.
