Abstract: Continuous and sole application of artificial or inorganic fertilizer induces the soil sickness and disturbs the soil environment, to result in low productivity and unsustainability. Therefore, an experiment was conducted during Rabi season 2015-16 at Students’ Instructional Farm (SIF), C.S.A.U.A&T Kanpur. Twelve treatments were tested in three replicated Randomized Block Design. Result found that significantly better growth attributes (plant height and dry weight), yield attributes (number of siliqua plant-1 and length of siliqua) and yield (24.30 q/ha) was obtained with combined application of RDN 50% + 25% FYM + 25% vermicompost + 30 kg S + azotobacter over rest of the treatments. The minimum grain yield (20.15 q/ha) was received in treatment 100% RDN. Thus, mustard fertilized with RDN 50% + 25% FYM+25% vermicompost+30 kg S +azotobacter is to be recommended for mustard production.
