Abstract:

The field experiment was carried out at Research field of Department of Soil Science, Allahabad school of Agriculture, during rabi season of 2014-15. The experiment was laid out in 3×3 factorial randomized block design with 9 treatments in three replications. It was observed that the best yield attributes characters in treatment T8-(@120:60:40 kg NPK ha-1 + 40 kg Sulphur ha-1) in respect to different days intervals i.e. 30, 60, 90 and 120 days after sowing (DAS). Plant height was 20.61, 122.45, 169.67 and 171.91 cm found to be significant at 120 DAS but non-significant at 30, 60 and 90 DAS. Number of leaves plant-1 were 8.00, 14.22, 17.56 and 8.30 found to be non-significant at 60 and 90 DAS but significant at 30 and 120 DAS. Number of branches plant-1 was 9.33, 11.44 and 11.94 found to be significant at 120 but non-significant at 60 and 90 DAS. Highest number of siliqua plant-1, Number of seeds siliqua-1, fresh weight plant-1 (g), dry weight plant-1 (g), test weight (g), seed yield (t ha-1), straw yield (t ha-1) and oil content(%) was found in T8-(@120:60:40 kg NPK ha-1 + 40 kg Sulphur ha-1) which was 301.00, 16.20, 104.44, 37.45, 3.96, 22.00, 45.12 and 37.67 was found to be significant. Highest B: C ratio (1:2.36) was recorded in T3-(@ 60:30:20 kg NPK ha-1 + 0 kg Sulphur ha-1). However, since these findings are based on one year experiment and therefore, further research may be conducted to substantiate it under Allahabad agro climatic conditions.
