Abstract:

A field experiment was carried out at Agronomy Instructional Farm, C.P. College of Agriculture, Sardarkrushinagar Dantiwada Agricultural University, Sardarkrushinagar, Gujarat during rabi season of the year 2018-19 to study the effect of different fertility levels on yield, nutrient uptake and soil fertility after harvest of mustard. The experiment comprising of twelve treatment combinations viz., three levels of nitrogen (50, 75 and 100kg N /ha), two levels of phosphorus (50 and 75 kg P2O5/ha) and two levels of sulphur (40 and 60 kg S/ha) were evaluated in randomized block design with factorial concept and three replications. The soil of the experimental field was loamy sand in texture, low in organic carbon (0.18 %) and available nitrogen (171 kg/ha), medium in available P2O5 (37.2 kg/ha) and low in available sulphur (6.8 kg/ha) with soil pH of 7.3. Results revealed that higher yield, nutrient content and uptake of nutrient of mustard and higher available nutrient status in soil can be secured by the application of 75 kg N/ha along with 50 kg P2O5/ha and 40 kg S/ha in loamy sand soil of North Gujarat Agro-climatic conditions.
