Author(s): L. K. JAIN
Abstract: Growth and yield parameters, crop yields as well as oil and nutrient content were analyzed for Indian mustard (Brassica juncea Czern L.) grown in field trials as residual crop at College of Agriculture Sumerpur in Western Rajasthan of India during winter season of 2019 and 2020 using six treatments of weed management and five treatments of integrated organic nutrient management in split plot design. The application of organic mulch and application of farm yard manure (FYM) significantly affected the bio mass yield as well as quality parameters of crop. The results reveal the significant differences in growth and yield attributes, yields and oil content in mustard seed. However, weed management practices found to be non-significant in recording these parameters except oil content. The results further shows that the vermicompost and weed free check did not reflect significant differences in parameters under study.
