Author(s): Adarsh Kumar Srivastava, Rajeev Kumar and RS Kureel
Abstract: Mustard (Brassica species) is the major Rabi oilseed crop of India. Mustard seed is the second most important oil seed crop in India after soyabean accounting for nearly 20-22% of the total oilseeds produced in the country. This crop accounts for nearly one-third of the oil produced in India, making it the country’s key edible oilseed crop. Since these crops are cultivated mainly in the rain-fed and resource scarce regions of the country, their contribution to livelihood security of the small and marginal farmers in these regions is also very important. A On Farm trials were conducted in 2018-19 during rabi season in ten location in the Dhanbad district. Results of the experiment revealed that yield attributes like number of branches per plant, no. of siliqua /plant, test weight of 1000 grains, cost of cultivation, net return and benefit cost ratio were recorded significantly higher with application of recommended dose of fertilizer (NPK -80 :40:40) with 20 kg sulphur/ha followed by RDF (80 :40:40) + 10 kg sulphur/ha. The net return and benefit cost ratio is also significantly higher than farmers practice ((30:20:0:0).
