Abstract

Oilseeds, particularly rapeseed-mustard, play a vital role in India's agricultural landscape, contributing significantly to the economy. Toria, a winter oilseed crop, is of particular importance, cultivated in both irrigated and rainfed conditions. Fertilizers, especially nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and sulfur (S), play a crucial role in enhancing toria yield. Integrated nutrient management (INM), which includes the use of farmyard manure (FYM), is a sustainable approach to maintain soil health and improve crop productivity. The study evaluates the impact of nutrient management practices on toria growth and yield. Additionally, it compares the performance of the newly released toria variety 'Tapeswari' with traditional varieties ('T9' and 'T36'). The results indicate that 'Tapeswari' fertilized with 100% RDF + 25% N through FYM outperforms traditional varieties in terms of growth, yield attributes, and overall yield. The study underscores the importance of effective varietal selection and nutrient management for enhancing rapeseed-mustard production, profitability, and soil fertility.

Keywords: FYM, oilseed, Tapeswari, T9, T36
