Abstract

This study was conducted at farmers’ field with three disperse replicas in three different places viz. Satkhira (AEZ-11), Koyra (AEZ-13), and Bagerhat (AEZ-11) of Khulna division in the Rabi season of 2019-2020 to determine salt tolerant varieties for maximizing mustard yield, as well as farmers’ income. Characterization was done with six varieties namely BARI Sarisha-11, BARI Sarisha-14, BARI Sarisha-16, BARI Sarisha-17, and BARI Sarisha-18 (Canola) and a control variety Tori-7 under saline stress condition in coastal area of Bangladesh. Seed Tori-7, BARI Sarisha-11, BARI Sarisha-16, and BARI Sarisha-18 (Canola) were pingol in color while BARI Sarisha-14 and BARI Sarisha-17 were yellow. The yields range of the varieties was 1.13 to 2.09 t ha-1 and oil was 41.37 to 43.40%. Variety BARI Sarisha-18 (Canola) produced the maximum yield (2.09 t ha-1) followed by BARI Sarisha-16 (1.98 t ha-1) and BARI Sarisha-11 (1.84 t ha-1). Because BARI Sarisha-18 (Canola) and BARI Sarisha-16 are suitable for coastal areas, combining this variety with a coastal area cropping pattern will increase cropping intensity, which will benefit farmers both economically and nutritionally.

Key word: Mustard variety, soil salinity, tolerance, growth, yields performance.
