Abstract:

A field experiment entitled “Effect of vermicompost, rock phosphate, PSB and different bio-products on yield and economics of groundnut (Arachis hypogea L.)” was conducted at Agronomy Department Farm, College of Agriculture, Dapoli. Dist. Ratnagiri, Maharashtra, India, during rabi seasons 2017-18 and 2018-19. The experiment consisted of eight different organic packages in main plot treatments and three bio-products in sub plot treatments. The experiment was laid out in split plot design with three replications. Data on yield and economics was recorded and statistically analyzed. The experimental results in pooled data revealed that, the groundnut crop grown under 50 kg N through vermicompost + 50 kg P2O5 through rock phosphate + phosphate solubilizing bacteria (PSB) (T8) were recorded significantly higher dry pod yield (39.99 q ha-1), kernel yield (29.22 q ha-1), haulm yield (48.70 q ha-1)over all other organic packages. In case of economics, the highest net returns of 75894.94 ha-1 with B: C ratio of 1.44 were obtained under 25 kg N through vermicompost + 50 kg P2O5 through rock phosphate + phosphate solubilizing bacteria (PSB) (T7) followed by 25 kg N through vermicompost + 50 kg P2O5 through rock phosphate (T5). Application of cow urine (10%) (P2) were recorded significantly higher dry pod yield (35.69 q ha-1), kernel yield (25.93 q ha-1), haulm yield (43.25 q ha-1), net returns (58072.35 ha-1) and B: C ratio (1.34) followed by vermi-wash (3%) (P3) and control (P1).
