A field investigation was carried out during rabi seasons of 2001-02 and 2002-03 at National Research Centre on Rapeseed - Mustard (ICAR), Sewar, Bharatpur, Rajasthan to the effect of three levels of FYM (0, 2.5 & 5.0 t/ha ) with two biofertilizers (Azotobactor and Azospirillum)at the rate of 4.0 Kg/ha each and three levels of N (0, 40 & 80 kg /ha) on Indian Mustard (Brassica juncia L.), cv. RH-30. The yield attributes and seed as well as stover yield increased significantly with the application of FYM (5.0 t/ha) over control. Seed inoculation with either of the bacteria significantly increased the number of branches, pods/plant, seeds/pod and yield of seed and stover yield. Application of N showed liner increase of these characters up to 80 kg N/ha. Integrated use of bio fertilizers, FYM with 40 Kg of nitrogen gave seed yield equal to the 80 kg N/ha Alone. Maximum seed yield was obtained in the use of higher doses of N fertilizer in conjunctions with bio fertilizers and FYM in both years.
