A field experiment was conducted during the winter seasons of 2021-22 at the Research farm of the college of forestry Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture Technology and Science Prayagraj (U. P) to investigate the effect of different sowing dates and varieties on Mustard growth and yield in Prayagraj conditions Keeping in this view experiment was conducted in Factorial RBD with three replications having two factors. First factor comprised of three dates of sowing 15Oct. 30Oct. and 15Nov. whereas the second factor consists of three Indian mustard varieties viz; Maharaja Mustard, Md Rani Supergold, Kala Sona, Crop sown on 15th November was recorded statistically significant higher seed yield, stover yield, test weight, harvest index and at maturity best consumption of heat units like gdd, htu and ptu as compared to 30th October and 15th October sowing. In the case of plant growth parameters of mustard, maximum was recorded under 15th November as compared to 30th October and 15th October and in case of varieties maximum plant growth like plant height, no of leaves no of branches, no of silique, and optimum use of heat units was recorded with md rani super gold as compared to kala sona and maharaja. The treatment with the date of sowing 15th November and md rani super gold variety proved the most remunerative and economically feasible for the cultivation of Indian mustard under the agro-climatic conditions of Prayagraj U.P.
