PERFORMANCE OF PROMISING MUSTARD (Brassica juncea L.) CULTIVARS UNDER WEST BENGAL CONDITION
Two high yielding mustard (Brassica juncea L.) cultivars TM-204 and TM-143 developed at Bhaba Atomic Research Centre (BARC), Trombay, Mumbai were used as initial material. The cultivars were tested in different agro climatic zones of West Bengal for 4 years at 16 locations. Among them TM-204, a yellow seed coat mustard produced seed yield of 1336 kg/ha and TM-143 another yellow seed coat mustard produced seed yield of 1316 kg/ha. TM-204 also demonstrated in farmers’ field trial and it surpassed the yield of local check varieties (B-85 and B-9) by 4.2 to 24.3 %. Both the entries were found superior for seed and oil yield over national (Kranti) and zonal check (Pusa Bold) varieties.
