Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted in Akola, Maharashtra, India during the rabi season of 2001-02 to determine the effects of irrigation (during pre-sowing, and at the vegetative, branching, siliquae setting, 50% flowering and grain filling stages) and source of sulfur (bensulf, gypsum, single superphosphate) on the yield, water use efficiency, consumptive water use and absolute and relative water use of Indian mustard. Irrigation at pre-sowing and at the vegetative, 50% flowering and grain filling stages increased the values of yield, consumptive water use and absolute and relative water use, and decreased the water use efficiency of the crop. Application of 30 kg gypsum/ha resulted in the highest values for the yield components measured, seed yield and water use efficiency. Consumptive water use was highest with the application of 30 kg bensulf/ha. The sources of sulfur had no significant effects on the absolute and relative water use of the crop. Dry matter per plant, test weight and seed yield were highest with irrigation at pre-sowing and at the vegetative, 50% flowering and grain filling stage and with the application of 30 kg gypsum/ha.
