Abstract: A field experiment was conducted during rabi 2006 at Main Agricultural Research Station, University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad to study the response of mustard varieties to date of sowing and row spacing. The soil texture of the experimental site was clay with medium available nitrogen (209 kg/ha), phosphorus (30 kg/ha) and potassium (338 kg/ha). There were 12 treatment combinations consisting of three varieties (Pusa Agram, Pusa Mahak and EJ-15), two sowing dates (II fortnight of September and I fortnight of October) and two row spacings (30 cm and 45 cm) and the experiment was laid out in Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with factorial concept with three replications. The mustard variety Pusa Agram recorded significantly higher seed yield (1028 kg/ha) and oil yield (447.11 kg/ha). Early sowing during II fortnight of September recorded significantly higher seed yield (888 kg/ha) and oil yield (387.74 kg/ha). Row spacing of 30 cm recorded significantly higher seed yield (874 kg/ha) and oil yield (383.56 kg/ha). The performance of mustard with respect to growth and yield parameters was significantly superior with variety Pusa Agram, II fortnight of September sowing and 30 cm row spacing. Significantly higher net returns and B:C ratio were recorded with variety Pusa Agram (16081 Rs./ha and 2.14), early sowing during II fortnight of September ((13079 Rs./ha and 1.78) and 30 cm row spacing (12600 Rs./ha and 1.68). It can be concluded that mustard seed yield (1326 kg/ha), oil yield (570.03 kg/ha), net returns (23107 Rs./ha) and B:C ratio (3.12) were higher with variety Pusa Agram sown during II fortnight of September at 30 cm row spacing.
