Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out during rabi season of 2016-17 at ICAR-Directorate of Rapeseed-Mustard Research, Bharatpur, Rajasthan to evaluate the effect of different stage of transplanting on growth, yield attributes, seed yield and economics of Indian mustard. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with seven replications and three transplanting dates, viz.,13 October (D1), 22 October (D2) and 01 November (D3).The maximum values of plant height (197 cm), leaf area index (5.87) and SPAD-chlorophyll content (54.8) were recorded at 13 October date of transplanting (D1) compared to other transplanting dates. Yield attributes and seed yields were significantly affected by the date of transplanting. Results showed that length of silique (6.23 cm), number of seeds/silique (22.2), test weight (7.91 g) were also recorded highest at 13 October date of transplanting. Oil content (41.65 %) was also more in D1 followed by D2 and D3. The higher B:C ratio was calculated in D1(3.95) followed by D2 and D3. In nutshell, transplanting of mustard (variety, RH 406) at 13 October improved the productivity and profitability of Indian mustard. This also could open the new avenues for early establishment of crop where sowing of mustard is get delayed due to late harvesting of kharif crops.
