Abstract: A field experiment was conducted during rabi season of 2013-2014 on sandy loam soil of student instructional farm (SIF) of C.S. Azad University of Agriculture & Technology, Kanpur (U.P.) to study the effect of various irrigation schedule and sulphur levels on productivity and water use efficiency of Indian mustard [Brassica juncea (L.)]. The pH of soil of experiment field was 7.3 with available N2 129.0, P2O5 17.1 and K2O 187 kg ha-1. The treatment consisted of six irrigation stages IR0 (no sown irrigation), IR1 (30-35 DAS), IR2 (flowering), IR3 (30-35 DAS and flowering), IR4 (30-35 and siliqua development) and IR5 (30-35, flowering + siliqua development) in main plot. And three levels of Sulphur S0 (no sulphur), S1 (20 Kg ha-1) and S2 (30 kg ha-1) in sub plot were tested in split plot design (SPD) with three replications. Results showed that the maximum seed yield was observed with the three irrigation levels IR5 (30-35 + F + SD) which were higher by 20.47, 25.51, 47.01, 54.65 and 123.90 percent over IR4, IR3, IR2, IR1 and IR0 respectively.
