RESPONSE OF NITROGEN AND SULPHUR FOR MAXIMIZING THE PRODUCTION OF MUSTARD (BRASSICA JUNCEA) IN RAINFED CONDITION OF SUB AGRO CLIMATIC ZONE – VIS.S. Kumar, K.K. Binjha, A. C. Pandey, P. Prasad and Nazrussalam
The field experiment was conducted during rabi season of 2018-19 and 2019-20 at Zonal Research Station, Darisai, East Singhbhum, Jharkhand to study the Response of nitrogen and Sulphur for maximizing the production of mustard (Brassica juncea) in medium land underrainfed condition of sub agro climatic zone â VI to find out the maximum production of mustard in response of nitrogen and sulphur. All the treatments were tested in randomized bock design with ten treatments i.e., N0 S0 (Control) (T1), 20 kg N/ha +10 S/ha (T2), 20kg N/ha+20 S/ha (T3), 20 kg N/ha+30 S/ha (T4), 40 kg N/ha+10 S/ha (T5), 40 kg N/ha+20 S/ha (T6), 40 kg N/ha+30 S/ha (T7), 60 kg N/ha+10 S/ha (T8), 60 kg N/ha+20 S/ha (T9), 60 kg N/ha+30 S/ha (T10). The treatments were replicated thrice resulted that the combination of 60 kg N/ha+30 S/ha (T10) recorded highest plant height (165.8cm), yield attributes, viz. silique/plant (181.3), seed/silique (11.9), 1000 seed weight (5.1 g) owing to highest Seed yield (10.35q/ha). Also highest net returns (`29152/ha) and benefit :cost ratio (1.84) was recorded by 60 kg N/ha+30 S/ha (T10).
