A field experiment was conducted during the winter season of 1999-2000 and 2000-2001 to study the effect of limited irrigation and nitrogen levels on growth, yield attributes and yield of Indian Mustard. The yield attributes, seed yield, stover yield and harvest index were more in the variety Laxmi than the variety RH-9304. The seed yield was found highest (1582 kgha-1). With one irrigation at flowering stage over no post sowing irrigation (1269 kgha-1). Nitrogen application influenced significantly the seed yield, stover yield and yield attributes up to 100 kg Nha-1.
