Abstract:

Groundnut is the major kharif crop in alfisols of Rayalaseema region of Andhra Pradesh. Most of the groundnut crop under rainfed condition has low productivity and monetary returns. For this, an investigation was carried out during the kharif season in 2016-17 at S.V. Agricultural College, Tirupati to study the effect of in-situ moisture conservation practices on economics of rainfed groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.). The results of the study shown that the highest monetary gains for rainfed groundnut can be attained by broad bed and furrow method of moisture conservation practice. The net returns and B: C ratio was found to be significantly higher in broad bed and furrows (₹ 35360 and 2.31) as compared to conventional tillage (₹ 17530 and 1.69 respectively).
