Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted to find out suitable hybrid variety among 6 mustard hybrid varieties (Kesari Gold, JD 6, B 85, RW 351, RW 8559 and B9) in terms of growth characteristics, yield attributing components and yield in randomized block design (RBD) at Central Research Farm of Bidhan Chandra Krishi Viswavidyalaya, Kalyani, West Bengal, during rabi seasons of 2016-17 and 2017-18respectively. The result of the experiment revealed that among the 6 mustard hybrids evaluated, Kesari Gold recorded highest seed yield (1797 kg/ha) followed by JD 6 (1484 kg/ha) and RW 8559 (1385.50 kg/ha) respectively. According to the result, Kesari Gold produced taller plants (157.25 cm) followed by RW 351 (151.74 cm) respectively. The pooled data revealed maximum number of primary branches per plant and highest number of siliqua/ plant with the variety Kesari Gold (6.53 and 236.75) respectively. Highest no. of seeds/siliqua (23.50) as well as maximum 1000 seed weight (4.94 g) was also found in Kesari Gold hybrid. According to the pooled data of 2016-17 and 2017-18, Kesari Gold recorded highest Oil (40%) which was closely followed by JD 6 (37.50%) respectively. So, mustard hybrid Kesari Gold found superior to all other tested hybrids in the experiment in respect to growth and yield components as well as seed yield and oil content also. Kesari Gold can be recommended for the farmers of this zone.
