Abstract: An experiment on the performance of various mustard mutants developed at Bhaba Atomic Research Centre, Mumbai was carried out at Bidhan Chandra Krishi Viswavidyalaya, West Bengal during the winter season of 2013-14, 2014-15 and 2015-16 at 13 locations across four agro climatic zones. Among the test entries, two yellow coated mustard TM-204 and TM-143 were included in the trial. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Complete Block Design having four replications, with 5 rows of 5 m length. 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. Based on three years trial TM 204 showed 10-15 per cent yield advantage and TM 143 showed 7-12 per cent yield advantage over two check varieties Kranti (National Check) and Pusa Bold (ZonalrnCheck).
