A field experiment was conducted to study the effect of zinc and boron levels on yield, quality and nutrient uptake in mustard under Northern transition zone of Karnataka during rabi, 2017 at MARS, UAS, Dharwad with 10 treatments. The treatment comprised of two levels of zinc (10 kg ha-1 and 20 kg ha-1) and two levels of boron (1 kg ha-1 and 2 kg ha-1) and their combinations. These treatments were compared with RDF + FYM @ 5 t ha-1 and RDF (60:50:40 N: P2O5: K2O) alone. The treatments were replicated thrice in a randomized block design. The experimental soil being deficient in zinc and boron, good response of crop to the applied zinc and boron was noticed. Application of ZnSO4 @ 20 kg ha-1 along with borax @ 2 kg ha-1 recorded higher seed yield (1973 kg ha-1), oil content (37.08 %), oil yield (731 kg ha-1), uptake of zinc (242 g ha-1) and boron (76 g ha-1) were noticed over RDF + FYM alone. However which was on par with application of RDF + ZnSO4 @ 20 kg ha-1 + Borax @ 1 kg ha-1 and RDF + ZnSO4 @ 10 kg ha-1 + Borax @ 2 kg ha-1
