Abstract

This review explore the impact of various nutrient management on mustard cultivation. Integrating organic and inorganic fertilizers significantly enhances plant height, branch number, siliquae per plant, seeds per siliqua, seed yield, and oil content. Treatments combining farmyard manure (FYM), vermicompost, and biofertilizers such as Azotobacter and phosphorus-solubilizing bacteria (PSB) with recommended doses of NPK fertilizers showed superior results compared to inorganic fertilizers alone. The application of vermicompost and FYM not only improved nutrient uptake and soil properties but also increased the synthesis of beneficial phenolic compounds, enhancing plant health and pest resistance. This integrated nutrient management approach demonstrates a sustainable method to optimize mustard crop production, ensuring higher yields and better-quality seeds.

Keywords: FYM, growth attribute, integrated nutrient management, mustard and yield
