INTEGRATED NUTRIENT MANAGEMENT THROUGH MANURES AND BIOFERTILIZERS FOR ENHANCEMENT OF GROWTH, YIELD AND QUALITY OF SUMMER GROUNDNUT (AARCHIS HYPOGAEA L)S.M. Dhadge, P.S.Bodake and C.B. Gaikwad
A field experiment was conducted during 2005 and 2006 to study the effect of integrated nutrient management on growth, yield and quality of groundnut under irrigated condition. Application of 75 % RDF + 25 % N through FYM + Rhiz. + PSB significantly increased plant height, spreed, number of branches, leaf area, and dry matter accumulation and there by yield and quality of groundnut. Application of 75 % RDF + 25 % N through FYM + Rhiz. + PSB significantly increased growth, yield and quality parameters compared to rest of integrated nutrient management levels.100 % N through organic manure (50 % N through FYM + 25 % N through vermicompost + 25 % N through neem cake + Rhiz + PSB) treatment significantly increased oil content of groundnut kernels.
