Effect of NPK Applications on the Seed Yield and Oil Content of Three Raya (Brassica juncea L.) Cultivars

Nasir Saleem, Muhammad Rashid, M. Anjum Ali and Tariq Mahmood    

Abstract: The investigations to ascertain the effect of varying rates of NPK per hectare (ha–1) on seed yield and oil contents of three Raya cultivars i.e. RL-18 (V1), Parkash (V2) and Peela Raya (V3) were carried out at Agronomic Research Area, University of Agriculture, Faisalabad. Among the four fertilizer levels i.e. Fo (control), F1 (75-0-0 NPK kg ha–1), F2 (175-50-0 NPK kg ha–1) and F3 (75-50-50 NPK kg ha–1) used, the level F3 (75-50-50 NPK kg ha–1) influenced significantly all the growth and yield parameters such as number of pods per plant (585.59), number of seeds per pod (13.10), 1000 grain weight (3.70 g), seed yield (1640.10 kg ha–1) and straw yield (8849.40 kg ha–1) in all the three varieties (V1, V2 and V3). But none of the fertilizer levels (F0, F1, F2 and F3) affected the oil contents in any one of the three (V1, V2 and V3) varieties.
