Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during Rabi season, 2016 at the Crop Research Farm, Department of Agronomy, SHUATS, and Allahabad (U.P.) to study the Effect of Biofertilizers and Nitrogen Management on Growth and Yield of Rapeseed (Brassica campestris var. toria) in Randomized Block Design with Nine treatments replicated thrice. The results showed under treatment T9 (Azotobacter + PSB + 30 kg ha-1 N through inorganic Fertilizer + 30 kg ha-1 N through Organic manure poultry manure (PM) produced significantly higher plant height 75 Days (95.53 cm), number of branch plant-1 (8.37), dry weight (15.58 g). The significantly higher yield under treatment T9 (Azotobacter + PSB + 30 kg ha-1 N through inorganic Fertilizer + 30 kg ha-1 N through poultry manure (PM)) with No. of siliqua plant-1 (235.33), No. of seed siliqua plant-1 (20.40), Test Weight (4.17 g), seed yield (1500 kg ha-1), Stover yield (3790 kg ha-1), harvest index (28.36%) and oil content (42.03%) was recorded in treatment T9 (Azotobacter + PSB + 30 kg ha-1 N through inorganic Fertilizer + 30 kg ha-1 N through poultry manure (PM). Treatment T9 (Azotobacter + PSB + 30 kg ha-1 N through inorganic Fertilizer + 30 kg ha-1 N through poultry manure (PM) also recorded the highest gross return (67740 ha-1), net return (33265 ha-1) and benefit cost ratio (1.96).
