RESPONSE OF KHARIF GROUNDNUT (ARACHIS HYPOGAEA) TO LAND LAYOUTS, MULCHES AND NUTRIENT MANAGEMENT

Ratilal K. Mathukia

Abstract


 A field experiment was conducted during rainy (kharif) seasons of 2010 and 2011 to study the effect of land configurations, mulches and nutrient management on growth and yield of groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) at Junagadh (Gujarat). Alternate furrow and bed increased growth, yield attributes and yield over flat bed. Wheat straw and plastic mulch proved beneficial in improving growth and yield. Application of 100 % RDF + IBA @ 50 ppm + urea @ 1 % spray at 40 and 60 DAS increased yield as well as growth and yield components.
