The response of nipping on morpho-physiological parameters and yield of twenty two genotypes of Indian mustard [Brassica juncea(L.) Czern&Coss.] was studied in a field experiment. The results revealed that nipping significantly increased plant height, dry matters accumulation, number of primary and secondary branches per plant, number of sillquae per plant, seed yield (2678.146 kg ha-1), harvest index (30.57%) over non- nipping. respectively. Among the genotypes, RH 1223 recorded highest plant height, whereas, RH 1117 recorded highest dry matter, per plant. The highest stem girth, primary and secondary branches and main shoot length at harvest were found in RH 555, RH 1215 and RH 1223, respectively. In the yield attributes, the number of siliqua on main shoot, number of seeds siliqua-1, highest seed weight siliqua-1 were found in RH 1118 and RH 1441, respectively. The RH 1118 recorded the highest biological yield (10480.470 kg ha-1) and stover yield (7520.713 kg ha-1), whereas, RH 1215 recorded the highest seed yield (3099.336 kg ha-1), RH 1215 recorded the highest oil yield (1299.41 kg ha-1), The maximum harvest index (34.87%) was recorded in RH 1215 respectively.
