A field experiment and laboratory experiment was conducted in Split Plot Design with three replications during 2011-12 and 2012-13 on Indian mustard variety Urvashi at New Dairy Farm, Kalyanpur, Kanpur and Seed Testing Laboratory of Department of Seed Science and Technology, respectively. Six doses of zinc and sulphur viz. 0.0, 2.5, 5.0, 7.5, 10.0, 12.5 Kg ha-1 and 0, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 Kg ha-1, respectively were applied as basal dose. Results showed that the application of zinc and sulphur affected significantly to all parameters. The dose 10 Kg Zn ha-1 and 50 Kg S ha-1 recorded highest number of primary branches plant-1 (6.74 and 7.99), number of secondary branches plant-1 (11.23 and 12.60), days to 50% flowering (61.10 and 61.18), number of seeds siliqua-1 (13.22 and 14.36), raw seed yield (2.42 and 2.53 Kg plot-1 and 2680.33 and 2816.19 Kg ha-1), graded seed yield (2.24 and 2.48 Kg plot-1 and 2482.54 and 2747.15 Kg ha-1), respectively. Like-wise, 12.5 kg Zn and 50 Kg S ha-1 had registered maximum plant height (181.34 and 183.68 cm), length of siliqua (4.89 and 5.01 cm). The application of 10.0 kg Zn ha-1 and 40 Kg S ha-1 increased days to maturity (134.64 and 135.08), respectively. Maximum number of siliquae plant-1 (272.72 and 301.13) and 1000-seed weight (5.30 and 5.72 g) was recorded in 7.5 Kg Zn ha-1 and 50 Kg S ha-1, respectively.
