Abstract: The experiment on the performance of various yellow sarson varieties was carried out at Pulses and Oilseed Research Station, Berhampore during the winter season of 2010-11, 2012-13 and 2014-15 under Initial variety Trial (IVT) of AICRP (Rapeseed Mustard). Among the varieties YSWB-2011-10-1 developed at PORS, Berhampore was included in the trial. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) having three replications, with each sub plot size of 5.0 x 1.5 m2. Statistical analysis of the data showed significant differences for all the parameters except days to 50 per cent flowering, days to maturity and 1000 seed weight. It was observed that YSWB-2011-10-1(Anushka) registered 29 per cent seed yield and oil yield increase during 2010-11 and 18 per cent seed yield increase during 2012-13 over standard check variety B-9 under zone V at All India level. During 2014-15, YSWB-2011-10-1(Anushka) was tested against two toria varieties viz. Panchali (ZC) and PT-303 (NC). The entry recorded 8.7 per cent and 9.0 per cent seed yield increase 13.9 and 14.2 per cent oil yield increase over the two toria check varieties. Based on the performance of the coordinated trial over the years the varieties YSWB-2011-10- 1(Anushka) has been passed by State Variety Release Committee (SVRC) for release in West Bengal.
