Abstract:

A field experiment was carried out during the winter season of 2013-14 at the Crop Research Farm, Department of Agronomy, Allahabad School of Agriculture, SHUATS, Allahabad (U.P.) entitled “Response of sowing methods and different levels of sulphur and boron on growth and yield of yellow sarson (Brassica compestris L.).” The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with twelve treatments and replicated thrice. The plot consisted of three levels of sulphur (15, 30 and 45 kg ha-1), two levels of boron (1 and 2 kg ha-1) with two sowing methods (line sowing and broadcasting) along with NPK each at 80:40:40 kg ha-1 respectively, the results revealed that the maximum plant height (101.28 cm), plant dry weight (19.62 g), maximum no. of branches (9.93), test weight (3.18 g), seed yield (1.74 t ha-1), oil yield (755 kg ha-1) and harvest index (41.90%) recorded in the treatment (T5) sulphur 30 kg ha-1 and boron 2 kg ha-1 with line sowing. However, maximum oil content (44.21%) recorded in the treatment T6 – sulphur 45 kg ha-1 + boron 2 kg ha-1 with line sowing. The highest benefit cost ratio (1.82) was obtained in treatment (T7) Sulphur 15 kg ha-1 and boron 1 kg ha-1 with broadcasting.
