The field experiment entitled “Effect of different levels of fly ash and nitrogen on growth and yield in Indian mustard (Brassica juncea L.)” was conducted at the experimental farm of the University College of Agriculture, Guru Kashi University, Talwandi Sabo during rabi season 2018. The experiment was conducted in split plot design with combination of two levels of fly ash (control, fly ash @ 10 t/ha) in main plots and four levels of nitrogen (0, 75, 100 and 125 kg N/ha) in sub plots, replicated three times. Application of nitrogen@ 125 kg N/ha significantly increased the plant height (227cm), leaf area index (4.72), no. of seed/siliqua (604) as compared to other levels of nitrogen. Significant interaction effect between fly ash and nitrogen was observed for number of siliquae per plant. Application of fly ash @ 10t/ha with 125 kg N/ha recorded higher seed yield. The results showed that application of 10 t/ha fly ash gave significantly higher seed yield (20.8 q/ha) and increase was 11.8% over control. The application on nitrogen @ 125 Kg/ha increased the seed yield with 20.8, 11.7 and 5.9 % increase over control, 75 and 100 kg N/ha, respectively.
