Abstract: The field experiment was carried out at Department of Soil Science, Sam Higginbottom Institute of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences, Allahabad, India during kharif season of 2015-16. The experiment was laid out in 3×3 factorial randomized block design with 9 treatments in three replications. It indicates that application of NPK, Zinc, FYM and Azotobacter increased the total cost of cultivation of yellow mustard markedly. The maximum total cost of cultivation (` 39290.92 ha−1) and the maximum net return (` 56259.08 ha−1) was computed in T8 (N:P:K:Zn 120:60:60:20 kg ha-1 + FYM 10 t ha-1: Azotobacter 200 gm/10kg seed). while the maximum net return `−1 invested (2.85) was recorded inT6 (N:P:K:Zn 120:60:60:20 kg ha-1 + FYM 0 t ha-1: Azotobacter 0 gm/10kg seed).There should be a chance of better yield and net income, suggested all operations will be performing timely for this crop, because time is a very important factor and play great role for greater yield and its quality, before time or after time any operations in the field of agriculture production and quality will goes down.
