Field experiment was conducted to investigate the effect of cationic micronutrients (Zn,Fe,Mn,Cu), sulphur and gypsum on post harvest soil fertility and yield of mustard on red loam soil of Mewar. Seed yield of mustard was significantly improved by 10.5, 17.2, 14.5 and 17.9 per cent, respectively due to application of Zn and Fe @ 10 ppm, sulphur @ 40 ppm and gypsum @ 4 t ha−1 as compared to NP fertilization only. Application of managanese and copper had no significant effect on yield of mustard. Available status of Zn, Fe, Mn, Cu and S was significantly improved due to application of their respective elements. Availability of all elements, more or less, improved due to gypsum application
