Abstract:

The experiment was conducted during the Zaid season 2018 at Prayagraj to study the Sulphur and Plant Growth Regulators on Growth, Yield and Oil percentage of Summer Groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.). The experiment comprised of 2 factors and 13 treatments viz. Sulphur (30, 40, 50 kg ha-1) and Plant growth regulators (NAA 50 ppm (at 20 DAS alone & at 20, 40 DAS), GA3 30 ppm (at 20 DAS alone & at 20, 40 DAS)) and control. Sulphur and Plant growth regulators application significantly influenced the growth, yield attributing characters, yield and oil content over control. Addition of sulphur at 40 kg ha-1 along with foliar application of 50 ppm NAA twice at 20 DAS and 40 DAS recorded highest plant height (38.47 cm), plant dry weight (82.15 g), pod yield (1.97 t ha-1) and oil content (47.23 %) sulphur at 50 kg ha-1 along with foliar application of GA330 ppm at 20 & 40 DAS was seen in the kernels.
