Abstract:

Keeping in view the ever increasing demand of oilseed production of the country, there is a need to maintain adequate supply of nutrients through organic and inorganic sources. Therefore, the present investigation was planned to study the effect of sulphur, zinc, boron and sewage sludge application on growth and yield of mustard. It is evident from the data that significant increase in periodic plant height was recorded with the application of B, Zn, S and sludge. The maximum plant height was observed in treatment T10 (100% RDF + SS 20 t ha-1) followed by T12 (75% RDF+ SS 20 t ha-1). Highest number of leaves obtained in T10 followed by in T12 which is 14.53 and 13.97, respectively. The maximum number of primary branches i.e. 4.87 was recorded with treatment T10 followed by T12 with 4.47 at 90DAS, which was 35.75 and 24.86 % higher over T2 (control). All treatments showed significant increase in SPAD value over control (T2). The maximum SPAD value was recorded in T10 followed by T8, which showed an increase of 30.99 and 25.35%, respectively over control. The maximum seeds yield was found in treatment T10 followed by T12 with 20.90 and 19.13 g pot-1, respectively. The Stover yield ranged between 35.7–60.5 g pot-1. The maximum stover yield was found in treatment T10, followed by T12 with 60.5 and 55.8, g pot-1, respectively. The maximum oil content was found in treatment T10 followed by T12 with 40.4 and 40.1%, respectively. Therefore, it can be concluded that due to application of different level of boron, zinc, sulphur and sewage sludge in mustard crop, a significant increase in grain, stover yield and higher oil content can be obtained.
