Abstract

A field experiment was conducted during rabi 2023-2024 at Department of Agronomy, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology And Sciences SHUATS, Prayagraj on effect of sulphur and micronutrient on growth and yield of Mustard (Brassica juncea L.) with ten treatments combination such as Sulphur 10ppm + Mg 30 kg/ha, Sulphur 10ppm + B 5 kg/ha, Sulphur 10ppm + Ca 5 kg/ha, Sulphur 15ppm + Mg 30 kg/ha, Sulphur 15ppm + B 5 kg/ha, Sulphur 15ppm + Ca 5 kg/ha, Sulphur 20ppm + Mg 30 kg/ha, Sulphur 20ppm + B 5 kg/ha, Sulphur 20ppm + Ca 5 kg/ha and Control (RDF) 80:40:40 kg/ha (NPK)in randomized block design with three replications. Application of Sulphur 20ppm + B 5 kg/ha (Treatment 8) recorded maximum plant height (214.20), dry weight (g) per plant (31.61), Seed yield (t/ ha) (2.69) and stover yield (t/ha) (4.33).
