Effect of potassium application on seed yield of mustard in Agra

Rohit, Jitendra Singh

Field experiments were conducted at Dry land research farm, Bichpuri, Agra for three consecutive years to find out the response of mustard to potassium application against RDF in terms of seed yield. In Agra, farmers, in general, apply recommended dose of N and P fertilizers omitting potassium (K) from their fertilization schedule. This lack of K may be responsible for low yields and poor crop quality apart from other major physiological and biochemical requirements in plant growth. Seed yield and productivity of mustard still can be further improved in Agra by use of balanced fertilization. Application of 40 and 60 kg k/ha along with RDF increased the seed yield of mustard by 22.77 and 23.15% respectively over RDF (Only N and P were applied). Seed yield obtained with 40 and 60 kg K/ha were statistically at par during all three years, implying the application of 40 kg K/ha along with 100% RDF was good enough to meet the K requirement of mustard grown on low to medium status soils of Agra district.
