Abstract: Thrice replicated field experiments were conducted in Rabi season of year 2009-10 and 2011-12 to evaluate the effect of three levels of NPK with and without FYM and sulphur on yield, quality and nutrients uptake by Indian mustard (Brassica juncea L.). The results revealed that treatment containing 100% RDF of NPK + FYM 5MT ha-1+ Sulphur 40kg ha-1 recorded significantly highest mustard grain yield (17.96 q ha-1), protein content (21.06%), oil yield (6.72 q ha-1) and uptakes of nitrogen (60.53 kg ha-1), phosphorus (7.6 kg ha-1), potassium (13.47 ha-1) and sulphur (21.01 ppm) by mustard seed were also significantly highest with this treatment, whereas treatment consisting 100% RDF of NPK + Sulphur 40kg appeared to be more promising to gave significantly and highest stover yield (43.7 q ha-1), oil content (37.66 q ha-1) and uptakes of nitrogen (47.42 kg ha-1), phosphorus (8.02 kg ha-1), potassium (60.09 ha-1) and sulphur (15.21 ppm) by mustard stover over other treatments.
