Effects of Zinc and Boron on Yield, Nutrient Uptake and Economics of MUSTARD (BRASSICA JUNCEA L.) IN MUSTARD-MAIZE CROPPING SEQUENCE



Effects of Zinc and Boron on Yield, Nutrient Uptake and Economics of MUSTARD (BRASSICA JUNCEA L.) IN MUSTARD-MAIZE CROPPING SEQUENCE



Bangladesh Journal of Botany 46(2): 817-821



Field experiments were carried out to evaluate the effects of Zn and B on yield, nutrient uptake and economics of mustard (Brassica juncea L.) in mustard - maize (Zea mays L.) cropping sequence in subtropical soils of Jammu region. Twelve treatments consisting of recommended dose. of fertilizers (RDF) i.e., 60 : 30 : 15 : 20 kg/ha N : P : K : S either alone or with addition of different doses of zinc and boron were tested. The application of RDF + 10 kg Zn + 2 kg B/ha though at par with application of RDF + 5 kg Zn/ha resulted in significant increase in yield attributes viz. siliquae/plant, seeds/siliquae, test weight, seed and stover yields of mustard crop than recommended dose of fertilizers. However there was no significant residual effect of application of boron and zinc on the grain and stover yield of succeeding maize crop. Maximum B : C ratio for mustard crop was recorded with application of RDF + 5 kg Zn/ha which was higher than other treatments in comparison.
