Response of Mustard to Boron Fertilization in Old Brahmaputra Floodplain Soil

H. M. Naser and M. R. Islam

Abstract

Two identical field experiments were conducted, one in Phulpur, Mymensingh and the other in Netrokona during rabi season of 1999-2000 to evaluate the effect of boron on the growth and yield of mustard and to find the suitable dose of boron fertilizer for mustard in Old Brahmaputra Floodplain soil of Bangladesh. Four treatments such as T0 – Control, T1 – recommended package, T2 – alternate package and T3 – farmers’ practice were applied Application of boron significantly influenced plant height, branches per plant, pods per plant, seeds per pot, 1000-seed weight, seed yield and stover yield of mustard. The highest seed yield was obtained with the application of 1.5 kg B ha -1 in association with site specific recommended doses of N, P, K, S and Zn fertilizers in both Phulpur and Netrokona locations.
