Nutrient management strategies are an excellent resource for optimizing canola production in Pakistan's arid and semi-arid regions. The current study was conducted to investigate the effect of nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), zinc (Zn), and boron (B) on canola genotypes and determine optimal fertilizer levels. The two-season field experiment was conducted in a randomized complete block design (RCBD) with two promising canola genotypes (R00-125/14 and W97-75/16) and parents (Rainbow and Westar) under different combinations of N, P, B, and Zn. The results evinced that the varietal and fertilizer treatments produced significant differences regarding yield and yield contributing traits. In the case of the interactive effect of varieties and fertilizer treatments, R00-125/14 produced the maximum seed yield of 3377.7 kg ha-1 under the treatment N90-P45-Zn06-B1.0. The second-highest seed yield (3083.3 kg ha-1) was recorded in the same variety under N90-P45-Zn03-B1.5. The minimum seed yield (1471.4 kg ha-1) was obtained in W97-75/16 under N90-P45-Zn09-B1.5. The overall performance of the genotypes for yield and yield components indicated that all the characteristics significantly varied in mutants as well as the parent material under different treatments. The results of the study indicated that optimal fertilizer application can help enhance canola yield in Pakistan
