A New Variety of Yellow Sarson Pitambri

A variety of yellow Sarson 'PITAMBRI' has been developed and got identified for release by Oilseed Section of Chandra Shekher Azad University of Agriculture and Technology, Kanpur,

PItambri has given about 20-30% higher yield than National cheek varieties in the yield trials.

It matures in 110-115 days, gives 18-20 q/ha yield and 42.8% oil (600kg/ha oil).The proper sowing time is first fort night of September. The Scientists responsible for development of 'Pitambri' are Prof. Ranjeet, Mahak Singh, Dr. R.K.Dixit, Dr. Lalta Prasad and Dr. SBL Srivastava.
