Abstract: A field experiment was carried out at Calcareous Brown Floodplain Soil of Regional Agricultural Research Station, Jessore during the two consecutive seasons of 2000-2002. The objectives were to evaluate the effect of boron on the yield of mustard and to screen out the suitable variety (s) tested against different boron levels for maximizing yield of mustard in the study area. Four varieties of mustard viz., BARI Sharisha-6, 7, 8 and 9 and 4 levels each of boron (0, 1.0, 1.5 and 2.0 kg ha-1) along with a blanket dose of N120P35K65S20Zn5 kg ha-1 and cowdung 5 t ha-1 were taken in the study. Results revealed that BARI Sharisha-6 integrated with 1.5 kg B ha-1 was found to be superior to all other treatment combinations. The highest mean seed yield (1.96 t ha-1) was recorded with the said treatment by 25.64% yield increase. Among the 4 tested varieties of mustard, BARI Sharisha-7 showed a good performance and produced the highest mean yield (1.77 t ha-1) as compared to other varieties used. On the other hand, boron at the rate of 1.5 kg ha-1 individually increased the highest seed yield by 58.83%, over boron control (Bo). However, from regression analysis, a positive but quadratic relationship was observed between seed yield and boron levels.
