A field experiment was conducted at CCS Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar to study the effect of date of sowing and nitrogen levels on growth and yield of Indian mustard during 2013-14 and 2014-15. The experiment consisted of 4 dates of sowing and (October 15, October 25, November 5 and November 15) in main plots and five nitrogen levels (0, 40, 60, 80 and 100 kg N/ha) in sub plots was laid out in split plot design with three replications. Plant height and dry matter accumulation decreased significantly with successive delay in sowing. The increase in nitrogen dose increased the plant height and dry matter accumulation upto 100 kg N/ha at 120 days after sowing (DAS) and at maturity. Similarly, increase in dose of nitrogen increased the seed yield and biological yield significantly upto 100 kg N/ha during both the years. However, the biological yield of Indian mustard was statistically at par with highest dose of 100 kg N/ha with 80 kg N/ha. The growth parameters namely plant height and dry weight have significant positive relationship with seed yield during both the years.

Keywords: Date of sowing, Nitrogen doses, Growth, Yield, Indian mustard.
